Xbox One Sale This Weekend Only

With or without Kinect.

Xbox Canada has announced on their Facebook page that EB Games won’t be the only place to get $50 off an Xbox One this weekend.

For three days only, from February 27th through March 1st, “However you play, you can save $50 this weekend only!” This applies to both consoles sold with and without the Kinect peripheral, and according to this page, applies to both versions of the Assassin’s Creed Unity bundles ($349/$449 on sale), a basic Xbox One package ($349 on sale), and the Xbox One + Kinect with Forza Motorsport 5 bundle ($449 on sale).

As an added bonus, if you make your purchase through the Microsoft Store website, you’ll also receive a free copy of Titanfall with your purchase– a pretty good deal that they strangely don’t mention anywhere else. Note that I have no idea whether any of this applies at a physical Microsoft Store retail location.

After missing out on previous price drops that were available in the U.S., it’s nice to see them finally doing something for us here north of the border, however brief it may be.
