After just bringing the price back to the $400 mark, Microsoft is dropping the price again to $350. After having a record-breaking holiday season at the end of 2014, Microsoft is celebrating by dropping the price of the Xbox One starting tomorrow. The price drop does not specify any bundle, and this seems to only apply to the Xbox One without a Kinect. Unlike the last promotion there is no firm date when the price will jump back up. If you're looking to get an Xbox One now may be the time!
