Microsoft's promised price cut has arrived: You can now buy an XBOX ONE for only $399.

The $399 bundle ditches the Kinect motion sensor that used to come included with every XBOX ONE. If you want, you can still pick up a Kinect sensor for an extra $100.

The Kinect lets the XBOX ONE track your body's movement in addition to letting you use voice commands. Microsoft used to include a Kinect with every XBOX ONE in an attempt to encourage developers to innovate and bake Kinect features into their games.

The price cut comes after news that Sony had sold significantly more PlayStation 4 systems than Microsoft's XBOX ONE. As of April, Sony has sold over 7 million consoles. Microsoft has announced it has sold 5 million.

The gap in sales could be attributed to Sony's decision to de-bundle its own PlayStation Camera from its PlayStation 4 package before it even went on sale, a move that allowed Sony to enter the next-gen market at a price point $100 cheaper than Microsoft.

I guess you didn't hear that this price cut was announced more than a month ago. Call your ISP, your internet seems to be filtering news! However is it really a price cut? I mean you're not getting a significant peice of hardware, this is more of a different sku.

Does the title really need an exclamation point? Are you yelling it?

I'm confused.
I buy used games. I own a PS4, so according to Gamefaqs law I now have the right to act like a complete douchebag on the Xbox One board.

I don't trust an article that says MS has sold 5M consoles. It just makes it sound like they don't know what they are talking about...
