The Kinect-less Xbox One is getting even cheaper from this Sunday as Microsoft starts up its Season of Xbox discounts for the holidays. A new $349 price ($50 less than the current $399) will kick in from the 2nd of November through to the end of the year for several console bundles, including the Special Edition Sunset Overdrive white console. This will be across most major US retailers and there'll be similar deals for the rest of the world, though Microsoft hasn't yet detailed them in full. The Xbox One saw a recent price cut in the UK to £329, following on from a similar move in February and underlining Microsoft's determination to match and better Sony's PS4 proposition. The Kinect motion camera isn't being neglected, either, as it's included in the more expensive bundles in the upcoming promotion, which will raise the savings for buyers up to $150.
