You can currently get an Xbox One with Kinect and either Titanfall or Forza 5 for $100 more. I have even seen those bundles priced at $450-$470 from various sellers, brand new.

The $399 SKU should have come with a free game really, or been priced at $349.

Yeah, I agree with you. But they're hoping people won't do the math. They're hoping that they'll just see $399.99 and rush out to buy an Xbox One.

Admittedly, that is some solid logic. Those current prices, however, are more like temporary promotions rather than anything else. They're trying to cut down on excess stock.

Not everyone with a difference of opinion or that offers criticisms is a troll.

Those bundles won't last forever as they have stopped production of them so once they are gone then the 399$ one will look as the better deal unless you want Kinect.

Not too expensive for me. I bought a PS4 for $400 without any games. I think I'd be able to afford a Xbox One for $400 as well.

Not seeing the value =/= can't afford

To me, the PS4 is just as valuable as the Xbox One right now.

I'm hoping that they'll throw in a free game sometime toward the end of summer.

I would buy a Kinect-less SKU for the most at $350 but I would prefer the Kinect to be included at $350.
