So they are using gamefaqs troll math. Nice.

"Hey since it comes with all this stuff, it's effectively $330!"

I hope Yahoo intends for all it's yahoo readers to ask for that price at the register.

Not really - if you add the worth of the game, a year of Live and a 50.00 gift card, it's effectively that price.

Of course you're getting that trade off in merchandise, not an actual cash discount, but it's reasonable. Anyway, I know the PS4 fans will be in here to rip this apart, but I figured I'd post it in case anyone was actually interested in the deal - not to argue semantics with a bunch of angry dudes from the PS4 board.

Take it as you will.

What does the PS4 board and people from said board have to do with this topic?

Trolls from both Sony and MS camp have used this logic for reassurance constantly. Sony fans did it back when PS3 launched to justify their purchase....MS fans have done it this gen to justify their purchase (yes, before these "cuts" happened").

The price is still $450 at the register no matter how you or this article spins it. The only noteworthy news here is target adding a year subscription to Live. Which...should be the main point and what this topic should be about. Instead, it's about fuzzy math and such.

Well, first off every response so far is from you know who....lol....and I'm not justifying anything, nor am I "reassuring" myself or any one else. It's an informative post on a deal for the XB1. As I said; take it as you will.
