NCIX.com: Rock Candy Xbox One Controller Was $45 | Now $30 & Free Shipping

NCIX.com: Rock Candy Xbox One Controller Was $45 | Now $30 & Free Shipping

Are you on the hunt for a new Xbox Controller without spending too much money? Pick up a Rock Candy Xbox One Controller that is on sale from $44.99 down to $29.99 with free shipping.

I price compared the Rock Candy controllers at other online retailers. Surprisingly, they are hard to find. I found a blue one at Amazon Canada for $44.95 and I found all the orange, red, and blue at Best buy Canada for $44.99. Newegg Canada has the red, green, and blue controllers for $47.99 but shipping is an extra $9.99.

Price comparing showed me that this is a great price. I even found this device in the USA for more before currency exchange. Toys R Us has the controller for $39.99 USD and Amazon.com has the controller for $29.99 USD for two of the colours.

While price comparing, I ran into more of these controllers for the Xbox 360 – you might run into them if you are looking. Even for this older console, the cheapest Rock Candy controllers I could find were still $24.99.

At NCIX.com, you can choose between the green, red, or blue controllers. The controllers have clear polycarbonate casing so you can see through and into the main brain of the controller. The cases pop and the colours are bright – they remind me of rock candy. The brilliant white accents really set off the white colours. These are officially licensed controllers for your affordable gaming needs.

I actually like these controllers much better than the standard Xbox One controller and far better than the PS3 controllers I own. They are so ugly I actually bought Gelskins to spruce them up a bit.

These are a wired controller, which is the only downside that I can see. I prefer wireless, but there is a certain dependability that comes with wired. I just like the wireless controllers for their range. I can be on the couch across the room and playing. However, I do tend to move closer to the screen when I am gaming.

With free shipping on top of the $15 off, I am pretty happy with this deal. The controllers are gorgeous, officially licensed, and a great price.

Xbox One Just Dance 2015 – Only $15 @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on April 13, 2015 at 1:30 PM

Xbox One Just Dance 2015   Only $15 @ Amazon.ca

Well, Amazon Canada did it. They saw another company give a good deal on Just Dance 2015 for the Xbox One and they decided to blow the deal out of the water in their own special way. Just Dance 2015 for the Xbox One is now on sale from $49.99 down to $14.99. However, you will only receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Seriously, this blows all the previous deals we have found out of the water by $10. Oddly enough, only the Xbox One version is discounted whereas other versions cost over double this price. I also price compared the Xbox One version against other retailers to see if this is a trend. Here is what I found:

  • $24.99 @ Microsoft Canada
  • $49.99 @ Shop.ca
  • $49.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $49.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $49.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $49.99 @ The Source Canada

Pretty much, everyone still has the game for full price except for Microsoft. I have no idea why, but Amazon just came along and said, “we can go lower” – totally blowing Microsoft’s deal out of the water. Hey, it happens!

Since it has happened, you need to buy this. If you purchased the Microsoft version, then I suggest trying to get a price adjustment or just returning your copy for a refund and purchasing this one instead.

While I like the idea of this game, I have never been fond of games that require me to spend an extra $100 or so on hardware just to play them. I assumed I would need to use the Kinect, but there is no additional hardware required to play Just Dance 2015. Rather, the game track movements and scores using your smart phone. You just need to download the Just Dance 2015 motion controller app. This app will work on iPhones with iOS 6+ and on Android 4+ phones as well.

With this version, online multi-player is back. Dance with the friends you made on your last vacation or relatives living overseas. Dancing is a great way to strengthen bonds and promote community! Kids especially love dancing and they can show off their moves in Just Dance 2015. I think it would be fun for kids and their cousins, who may live in a different part of Canada, to be able to dance together over this game. It sounds cool!

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Microsoft Canada: Xbox One Just Dance 2015 Was $45 | Now $25 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 9, 2015 at 8:19 PM

Microsoft Canada: Xbox One Just Dance 2015 Was $45 | Now $25 & Free Shipping

We haven’t seen a deal like this on Just Dance 2015 since the short term deal we blogged for Cyber Monday! Just Dance 2015 for the Xbox One is on sale from $44.99 down to $24.99 with free shipping.

Price comparisons ensue! This game would cost you a lot more money if you were to buy it at any other retailer right now. Just Dance 2015 retails for:

  • $47.95 @ Amazon Canada
  • $49.99 @ Shop.ca
  • $49.99 @ Staples Canada
  • $49.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $49.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $49.99 @ The Source Canada

As you can see, none of the other traditional game retailers have this game on sale – and most certainly not for this price. In fact, Microsoft’s regular price is even cheaper than all the other sellers right now. EB Games is missing from this list, but their server is down (as of this post) so I could not compare.

There are some bonuses with the 2015 edition of the game you know and love. Just Dance now includes phone and tablet support for the game. You can download a free app on your smart phone or tablet that will let you play the game on the go!

Reviews for this title are mixed. most people thing they did not add enough to this new version of the game to make it worth buying. Others appreciate the attention paid to community, but hate how the game is not compatible with DLC. However, if you are new to the game or bought an Xbox One and need a few more games to play, this might just be a great pick. As one reviewer says:

So if you can set your cynicism aside and gather your three least inhibited friends (and maybe some of their kids or younger siblings), Just Dance 2015 can be one of the most fun games you’ll play this year.

I have wanted to try a game like this for ages. I love dancing – in the privacy of my own home – and think this would be a great way to burn off a few calories. As another reviewer on Metacritic said:

Just be forewarned—it took less than twenty minutes as a casual player to build up a sweat, so make sure you plan your wardrobe and company accordingly.

That sounds like an excellent way to burn off a few Easter chocolates, and maybe an entire Easter bunny over a weekend.

Best Buy Canada: 2 for $50 on Select Xbox One Games

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 9:23 PM

Best Buy Canada: 2 for $50 on Select Xbox One Games

Best Buy Canada is offering two select Xbox One games for just $50. These games regularly retail for $39.99 each – so you are saving around $30 with this deal. As you are buying two games for $50, your order will also qualify for free shipping.

Select game titles include:

  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One)
  • Forza Motorsport 5 Game Of The Year (Xbox One)
  • Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One)
  • Forza 5 (Xbox One)
  • Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One)

While this looks like a good deal – I did some careful price comparing with Walmart and with Amazon Canada to see what they charger per game.

Walmart Canada:

  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One) - $39.96
  • Forza Motorsport 5 Game Of The Year (Xbox One) - $39.96
  • Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One) – $64.96
  • Forza 5 (Xbox One) – not stocked
  • Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One) – $39.96 (OOS)

Amazon Canada:

  • Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One) - $34.89
  • Forza Motorsport 5 Game Of The Year (Xbox One) - $39.99
  • Sunset Overdrive (Xbox One) – $39.99
  • Forza 5 (Xbox One) – $39.99
  • Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One) – $28.99

With this promotion from Best Buy, each game comes down to $25, which certainly bests any of the prices at Walmart and Amazon right now. Three previously played versions are also included in the offer. However, I would only select them at last resort – if the regular version were sold out – as they are certainly worth less money.

I know zip about these games; therefore, I suggest reading some comments on Best Buy. I checked out the reviews on Sunset Overdrive and found everyone (except one guy) really loved the game. Most gamers were saying the person who gave the game one star obviously had not played the game themselves. For the three games that have ratings; Sunset Overdrive has a 4/5 star rating, Forza 5 has a 5/5 star rating, and Dead Rising 3 Also has a 5/5 star rating.

With the recent release of Furious 7, I really have the itch to play another racing game. Boxing and racing games used to be my standby entertainment when I was at the movie theatre too early. I really enjoyed the car racing games as well as the motorcycle racing games. I would pick up Forza Motorsport 5 – game of the Year edition for sure!

I have no idea when this promotion ends so please purchase sooner rather than risk missing out.

Toys R Us: Xbox One Wireless Controller $39.95 & $10 Off Coupon

Posted by on March 12, 2015 at 5:25 PM

 

Toys R Us: Xbox One Wireless Controller $39.95 & $10 Off Coupon

We have found the best deal on an Xbox One controller that you can possibly get right now. The Xbox One – Wireless Controller has dropped from $59.95 down to $39.95 at Toys R Us. Merely add a filler item, and you can score the controller for $29.95 (+ filler item cost) after the coupon code CineplexHoliday.

The name of the game is finding the cheapest filler item you can possibly add on to your cart. That way, you can get a stellar deal on the Xbox One controller. I found several options for filler items:

In Store Pickup:

Ship to Home:

Now, you can get your filler item shipped to store while the Xbox Wireless Controller ships to your home. You could then go pick up the filler item, or not! I played around the Crayola Crayons to fill out my cart. See how it works below:

Toys R Us: Xbox One Wireless Controller $39.95 & $10 Off Coupon

I will have the Xbox One controller shipped to my home. The Crayola crayons will ship to a store nowhere near me and together these two items are just above $40, so the $10 off $40 coupon applies. You can see it in my cart. In addition, as the order is over $25, it ships for free. My estimated total for both the crayons and the controller is $30.94 before tax. You will not find that price anywhere else! Here are the competition’s prices right now:

  • $39.99 @ Microsoft Store Canada
  • $39.99 @ Amazon Canada
  • $46.99 + $7.60 Shipping @ Newegg Canada
  • $59.83 @ Walmart Canada
  • $59.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $59.99 @ Future Shop Canada

As you can see, this controller is on sale at both Microsoft and Amazon but you are undercutting their prices by nearly $10 when you add on a small filler item.

For filler items, I included two that you can get shipped to local store (cheapest) and I included two that can be shipped to your home, in case neither of the ‘in store’ items are available at your local store. I hope this helps you score this fantastic deal on a brand new Xbox Wireless Controller. Even if you need to spend $3 on a filler item, you are still saving a good chunk of money off the competitor’s prices.

Downloadable Content for Titanfall FREE @ Xbox Store ($25 Value)

Posted by on March 11, 2015 at 1:21 PM

Downloadable Content for Titanfall FREE @ Xbox Store ($25 Value)

I know zip about Titanfall, but the internet is swarming with happy gamers because Microsoft has discounted a load of Titanfall DLC for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360.

Here is how the deal goes. The Titanfall Season Pass was $24.99 and is now on sale for $0.00. The season pass includes all three of the DLC packs for a total of nine maps.

I have linked directly to the Canadian store for these freebies. However, if you have regional issues (as in it shows en-CA in the website address), then your region may be defaulting to the USA. Click here to reset your region to Canada, as you must get these through the Canadian store.

Now, what if you already have one or two of these down loadable content packs? Well, you can get each pack – for free – separately. Separately, each of the three packs retailed for $9.99, so you are still saving a good chunk of money.

Here are the direct links for the individual Xbox One DLC packs:

Here are the direct links for the individual Xbox 360 DLC packs:

Again, if you are redirected the the US website (even though I have linked to the Canadian side), then use the link above to change your default region. Xbox requires a credit card (that is why you need the Canadian region) but that card will not be charged for this dowloadable content.

Each pack comes with new maps, bug fixes, and new features. Here are the maps you will receive with each pack:

  • Expedition: War Games, Swampland, and Runoff
  • Frontier’s Edge: Dig Site, Export, and Haven
  • IMG Rising: Backwater, Zone 18, and Sandtrap

All of these maps come with the season pass or you can purchase the DLC packs individually through the links above. The season pass is most convenient if you do not already own one or more of these DLCs.

For players of Titanfall, this is approximately a $25 freebie! I do not play Titanfall myself, so I would love to hear from anyone who does and picks up this freebie.

Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition PS4 & Xbox One – Was $70 | Now $32.49 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on February 20, 2015 at 12:43 PM

Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition PS4 & Xbox One   Was $70 | Now $32.49 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Gamers! Amazon Canada has dropped the price substantially on Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition for the PS4 and the Xbox One. The price for the game on these new consoles is cheaper than it is for the PS3 and the Xbox 360. Originally $69.99, Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition is now on sale for $39 $32.49 with free shipping.

You can select either console edition through the link above. I price compared this PS4 and Xbox edition with other retails to find it substantially more expensive elsewhere:

  • $64.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $64.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $69.99 @ EB Games (new)
  • $59.99 @ EB Games (recycled)

You would also have to pay shipping at EB games if you bought from there. I checked Walmart Canada as well, but they only have the game for older consoles. Amazon Canada’s price is the best you can get right now – and it is hot!

There are two different versions – one is English only and the other is French only. May sure you buy the right version or you might end up with a game in a language you do not speak. Evidently the French version for the PS4 does have an English language software package that can be installed so the game plays in English. i do not know if the English version has a language pack you could install for French. This is rather silly in my mind – if movies can be bilingual, why can’t a game?

Over, this game is a killer purchase at this price. It also has garnered high reviews from gamers. One reviewer on the Xbox One edition said:

Addicting as hell, I spent the last 12 hours playing non-stop, forgot to eat, drink and call my girlfriend to tell her I loved her, I’m now single. You want a game that will make you forget you have a life? Buy this.

I feel sorry for his girlfriend.

What blows my mind is that such a popular title is currently on sale for 40% off its original price – for the two newest consoles. How on earth did that ever happen? Even the recycled version at EB games is not that cheap.

You will receive free shipping on this game as it costs over $25. This is a win-win situation my lovely Moosers! Pick up this game before it sells out.

Best Buy Canada: Trade-in 2 Select Games for $70 GC (In-Store)

Posted by on February 10, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: Trade in 2 Select Games for $70 GC (In Store)

Best Buy Canada has started their trade-in event yet again. As a special promotion, they are offering a $70 gift card when you trade in two select PS4, XBox One, or WiiU Games.

Games must include their original boxes. They will not accept duplicate titles regardless of which console they are for. There is a limit of one trade in promo (of two games) per customer.

The following titles are eligible for trade-in:

Xbox One & PS4

  • Assassin’s Creed Unity
  • Destiny
  • Dragon Age Requisition
  • Fifa 15
  • NBA 2K15
  • Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor
  • COD Advanced Warfare
  • Diablo III Ultimate Evil Ed ENG
  • WWE 2K15
  • NHL 15
  • GTA V
  • The Crew Ltd Edition
  • Dying Daylight

Other

  • PS4 Little Big Planet 3 Ltd Edition
  • Xbox One Forza Horizon 2
  • Xbox One Halo Master Chief Collection
  • Xbox One Sunset Overdrive Day One ED
  • Wii U Mario Kart 8
  • Wii U Super Smash Bros

While they are all pretty new games, this is an opportunity to trade them in for a good return on your original investment. Two games equal a $70 gift card, so you are getting $35 trade-in value per game. You can then use that credit to buy new games, or even buy other Previously Played titles.

Each previously played title is backed by a 30-day money back policy and are guaranteed to work. Your previously loved games will be sold to other eager gamers that just cannot afford to buy the game at full retail price.

I think this is an excellent incentive from Best Buy Canada and a very good trade-in value. These days, you are lucky to get $20 back for fairly new games from the trade-in stores. While it would make most sense just to sell the titles privately, some people just do not have the time to dedicate to privately selling.

This offer is available in store only and is only available for a couple more days. Then the games will go back down to their regular trade-in value (whatever that might be). I am a bit disappointed that PS3 titles are not included in this offer. I would LOVE to trade in a few PS3 titles for some store credit, but i guess they have had their day.

You can spend the gift card on anything Best Buy has to offer!

Microsoft Canada: $60 Off Xbox One with Evolve Pre-Order

Posted by on February 1, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Microsoft Canada: $60 Off Xbox One with Evolve Pre Order

Pre-Order the game Evolve for $69.99, and receive $60 off the Xbox One Console of your choice from Microsoft Canada.

Add both the console of your choice and the Evolve game to your cart for the discount to apply. This is a rather interesting deal as the Evolve game is $69.99, so you are essentially paying only $10 for a brand new Xbox game – if you want to look at it that way. The qualifying consoles are:

Now, this is only a deal if you are planning to get this game anyway. I price checked the game against Amazon, and they have it on pre-order for $69 so it is not like this game is selling for a lot cheaper elsewhere. The title will be released on the 10th of February 2015.

I do not know much about the game, but here is a synopsis from Amazon:

The creators of Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock Studios, bring you Evolve, the next generation of multiplayer shooters where four hunters face-off against a single, player-controlled monster. Stalk your prey, execute your attack and prove you are the apex predator in adrenaline-pumping 4v1 matches.

This game is all about having fun with your friends. Grab three friends to go kill the big bad predator before it kills you. Choose a hunting style that best suits your personality, be it Trapper, Support, Assault, or Medic. There are different modes where even the flora and fauna are evil – you need to use them for your advantage or they will kill you.

Receive free shipping on all orders at the Microsoft Store Canada.

Microsoft Store: Bonus $10 Xbox Gift Card with Select Game Pre-Orders

Posted by on January 22, 2015 at 8:30 PM

Microsoft Store: Bonus $10 Xbox Gift Card with Select Game Pre Orders

Enjoy a bonus $10 Xbox Gift Card with the pre-order of select Xbox games at the Microsoft Store.

If you are planning to pre-order any games, you might as well get a nice little bonus with them since you will be paying full price for the game. Eligible titles for the bonus $10 gift card start at $49.99 and go up to $259.99.

For $49.99, you can pre-purchase Rugby 2015 for Xbox One. The title will not be released until the 24th of February, so you have approximately one month to wait. Be the pro-player you never had the figure for when you grab this game full of breathtaking kicks, tackles, and passes. The bonus $10 Xbox gift card does not hurt either.

Perhaps the most anticipated title of the New Year, Halo 5: Guardians for Xbox One is available for pre-order. Flop down $69.99 and get a bonus $10 Xbox Gift Card digital code with your purchase. Unfortunately, you will have to wait a while on this one; it is not scheduled for release until the end of December! If you follow the Halo franchise, then you know just how amazing this video game title has been in the past. The new version brings an all-new Arena multiplayer mode and new campaigns to keep you awake for days on end.

I think I need to play my current Final Fantasy game before my hubby will let me purchase another one. However, if you already came out of your locked bedroom covered in Cheetos dust, then pre-order Final Fantasy Type-0 HD at Microsoft. The game retails for $69.99 and will not be released until the end of 2015.

For pre-orders, you are required to give your credit card information and authorization but you will not be charged until the game is shipped. However, your bank may charge you a small reversible card-checking fee – but that should disappear within a few days. This way, your pre-order is a win-win situation as you can always cancel the order if you find it cheaper elsewhere.

There is a limit of one $10 gift card per qualifying Xbox One or Xbox 360 game title purchased for up to three game titles per person. Thus, this promotion can give you up to $30 in Xbox gift cards with your pre-orders. Shipping is free on all orders with Microsoft Canada.

Best Buy Canada: $150 Off Refurbished Xbox One Console With Kinect + 2 Digital Games – Just $350 (Starts @ 8pm)

Posted by on December 24, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: $150 Off Refurbished Xbox One Console With Kinect + 2 Digital Games   Just $350 (Starts @ 8pm)

Starting at 8pm EST tonight, the Xbox One 500GB console with Kinect will be dropping in price to just $349.99! Its original price is of $499.99 and it also comes with a free digital download of Ryse: Son of Rome.

It may be refurbished but this deal is guaranteed to fly off the shelves at it’s a whopping $150 discount! Refurbished is nothing to be scared of since you can rest assured that the product will function just as well or perhaps even better than a regular one. Plus, even if it doesn’t, you can just bring it back to the store. This console has a 90-day manufacturer’s limited warranty. Plus considering that video consoles are rather pircey at regular price, buying them refurbished is one of the best ways to save money. If you’re buying it for your kids, then you could just tell them that Santa ran a little late on delivering all the presents this year. Best Buy Canada: $150 Off Refurbished Xbox One Console With Kinect + 2 Digital Games   Just $350 (Starts @ 8pm)

On its own, an Xbox One console typically retails for $399.99 and $499.99 with Kinect, so just $350 for both the console, Kinect and even a free digital copy of a game definitely pushes this deal over the edge.

The promotional picture shows that this console also comes with a digital download of Ryse: Son of Rome but according to the description, it also comes with a digital copy of Dance Central Spotlight.

Since Best Buy ships all orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get this console delivered at no extra cost. You might also be able to reserve it in-stores. If it’s available at your nearest Best Buy, then it might be a good idea to line up in the wee hours of Boxing Day morning just to make sure that your snag yourself a copy.

If you plan on taking advantage of this deal, then make sure to also pick up an extra Xbox One controller as the console only comes with one. Earlier today, Avi blogged about a deal at The Source, where it’s currently $39.99 instead of its usual price of $59.99.

$20 Off Xbox One Wireless Controller – $39.99 @ The Source

Posted by on December 24, 2014 at 12:55 PM

 

$20 Off Xbox One Wireless Controller   $39.99 @ The Source

The Source Canada has discounted the Xbox One Wireless Controller from $59.99 down to $39.99 with free shipping! This is just one of their many Boxing week sales and one of the best offers in my opinion.

I price compared this controller with the competition right now:

  • $59.99 @ EB Games
  • $49.99 @ EB games (recycled)
  • $44.98 @ Amazon Canada
  • $59.99 @ Microsoft Canada
  • $58 @ NCIX Canada
  • $59.99 @ Newegg.ca (OOS)
  • $49 @ Walmart Canada

I cannot price compare with Best Buy or Future Shop right now as their websites are down preparing for the launch of their Boxing Day deals. However, I price compared with a ton of other stores including the legendary cheap giants (Walmart and Amazon), and The Source has by far the best price.

What can I tell you about this controller? I have never owned an Xbox so I am useless on the whole “it features this that and the other” presentation. This Xbox One controller is pretty much like the one before it (for the Xbox 3600 with slight modifications to make it more ergonomic and user friendly. Here are a few reviews:

I Love this controller. Its similar to the old one but they had changed it just slightly so it fits in your hands better.

and…

The xbox one controller is the best controller yet. one reason is easy to hold other reason is vibrate is perfect can even feel it in the triggers

I also do not expect this deal to hang around for long. It is a great discount and everyone who buys a new console knows you only get one controller in a console bundle and you need at minimum two if you are going to play with friends. Sure, you can be the lone gamer, but I find it much more fun to rant and rave and curse with a good friend.

Because the controller costs over $25, it will ship for free. For more great Boxing Week deals from The Source, check out Brooke’s post about The Source’s flyer.

Reviewers on Amazon.ca seemed to love this one, one review states:

My boys can’t get enough of this game. They love superheroes and Infinity 2.0 is way better structured than the first one with helping guide them to missions. Since they are only 4 and 7 years old the concept of spending skill points needed to be explained but all in all a great game.

Which character will you choose to be, The Hulk crashing down trees and throwing cars – or Captain America to save the world?

Refurbished Xbox One w/ Kinect & 3 Games only $349 @ Microsoft

Refurbished Xbox One w/ Kinect & 3 Games only $349 @ Microsoft

Microsoft Canada has a very good deal on a Refurbished Xbox One with Kinect and two games. Get the bundle for just $349, valued at $399.99 and get a bonus game with it!

You are getting a lot in this bundle:

  • Xbox One
  • Kinect Sensor
  • Xbox One wireless controller
  • Xbox One chat headset
  • Game – Dance Central Spotlight (download)
  • Game – Ryse: Son of Rome (download)

On top of that, you get to choose a third game free with your bundle purchase. This game has a retail value between $39.99 and $69.99 depending on the game you choose. Here are your highest value options:

  • Halo: The Master Chief Collection for Xbox One ($69.99)
  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for Xbox One (English or French) ($69.99)
  • Destiny for Xbox One (English or French) ($69.99)
  • Sunset Overdrive for Xbox One ($64.99)
  • Forza Horizon 2 Day One for Xbox One ($64.99)
  • Titanfall for Xbox One ($59.99)

There are other options, but these are the ones I would recommend as they have the highest retail value.

Now, we have seen Xbox Ones around this price before but they never included the Kinect, which retails separately for around $160 (on Amazon). I was just looking around at any Xbox One bundles that had the Kinect included, and they tended to retail well above this price. Amazon Canada has the Assassins Creed Bundle and the Forza Bundle with Kinect for $499 each. The same goes for Walmart and Future Shop. Any bundle with the Kinect included retails for around $500 and does not include an extra game (only two games, not three).

Yes, this is a refurbished console and that may turn some people off. However, I think that refurbished is better as the bugs have already been worked out of the system. I have been buying refurbished products for years and rarely have a problem with them. I consider the money saved worth the price of not buying something ‘absolutely new.’

The refurbished console comes with a 90-day warranty and their might be minor cosmetic imperfections. If you are dying for the Xbox One and cannot afford the $500 price tag, then this is a viable alternative. Receive free shipping on all orders at Microsoft Canada.
