But I'm still paying $677. Come talk to me again when you drop 100 off the console.

Well, 30 off and a 50 game, so technically 80 saving off the package.

Why the hell is it so expensive there? It's no wonder it isn't selling well over seas
I don't conform to social convention
PS4 or Xbox... Why not Zoidberg?

Only counts if you want Titanfall or can sell it on.

I like how you use dollars to make it seem more expensive than it should...

In the UK, our consoles and games are more expensive than they are in the US. You can get an Xbox One, brand new in the US for about $500. In the UK, it would cost 360, according to Amazon. That's $600. It used to be about $700. I spent 500 for the console with CoD:Ghosts and a controller. That equates to $830.

The Titanfall bundle is 400, so you aren't really saving 80 if you take into account of the new price drop.

Its due to the fact that there are import costs for bringing the unit into the UK and VAT is included in the price unlike the US where Sales Tax isn't included in the price of the item and is added at the checkout.
You're telling me too do the right thing while climbing out a window!?!?

If you are really from the UK you'd know the VAT makes the XBO cost an equivalent of 600$ in the UK. So you are paying 77$ more for transport tolls and the like.
