We have been repeatedly checking costs all over the world on Xbox One X bundles (and all the opposite high consoles) since pre-orders first went on-line final yr, so we’re properly accustomed to the best way costs circulate on consoles all year long.
US players have had a very tough experience with the Xbox One X since launch. With retailers not often even bothering to supply discounted video games or cash off the console itself.
