The Xbox One and PS4 Now Cost the Same Thanks to Maplin Price Cut

By Gerald Lynch on at

If the toss-up between an Xbox One or PS4 console is all down to the price for you (and not exclusive games like Titanfall or tin-foil hat Kinect sensor concerns), making a choice on a next-gen gaming system just got much harder. A new Maplin price cut puts the Xbox One at £349.99 -- exactly the same as the PS4.

That's a saving of £80 over the RRP, and puts it on a par with the PS4's price since its launch in November. As you'd expect, at that price Maplin has already sold out of its stock. And while this isn't an official Microsoft-pushed price drop, you'd now expect other retailers to follow suit. [IGN]
