Microsoft have recently announced a cheaper Xbox One bundle without the once mandatory Kinect resulting in a price drop bringing it inline with the PS4 pricing, however is it enough to convince gamers to purchase an Xbox One console? Not according to a recent survey conducted by market researchers which shows that a whopping 79% of gamers would not currently buy Microsoft's Next Gen console.
Interestingly though the survey shows that 43% of Xbox 360 users have not purchased the 'Next Gen' console because of its price, oddly though 58% of those very same users said they wouldn't buy the Xbox One at the lower price of $399 which is a massive $100 price drop.
