Microsoft has announced a price cut for the XBox One, knocking £30 of the price and throwing in a free copy of Titanfall.

The price cut comes less than a month before the launch of what many are seeing as the first big platform exclusive that will drive many to buy the new console. Although also available on PC and, after a short delay, the Xbox 360 the title won't be coming to the Playstation 4.

The new £399.99 price will be available from 28 February and the Titanfall bundle can be pre-ordered direct from Microsoft as well as the usual retailers. The bundle includes the console, a Kinect sensor, standard Xbox One wireless controller, standard Xbox One Chat Headset, one month of Xbox Live Gold membership and a digital copy of Titanfall.

The Xbox One has so far been trailing slightly behind the Playstation 4 when it comes to worldwide sales, with the console's high price and 'unnecessary' extras such as Kinect and TV integration putting buyers off. The lack of a big launch title for either platform has also cause many potential buyers to hold off. Microsoft is hoping Titanfall will be the game to kickstart uptake of its console.
