Microsoft has dropped the price of the Xbox One, following the recent announcement of the new Xbox One S.

Just two weeks ago, Microsoft cut the price of its current-gen console by $50, taking it down to $299. Today, Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb revealed that “for a limited time” Xbox One consoles in the U.S. will be available at the new price of $279.

Yesterday, at its E3 press conference, Microsoft announced the long-rumored slim version of the Xbox One, called the Xbox One S. The updated console is 40% smaller than the Xbox One and supports 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays, 4K video, and will upscale select games to 4K.

Microsoft also unveiled its new console, which is currently going under the codename Project Scorpio. This console will be a lot more powerful than the current Xbox One and will support gaming in resolutions up to 4K. Project Scorpio is scheduled to launch late next year.
