Remember when Microsoft cut the price of the Xbox One to $349 and it was a magical time where it became the best selling console in the United States for November? Though Microsoft rescinded the offer as the Holidays ended, it announced that the Xbox One will revert to a $349 price point from January 16th onwards.

One would assume this promotion is for a limited time, but with recent NPD data indicating the Xbox One as the best selling console in the US for December as well with weekly average sales outpacing the Xbox 360 by 50 percent in its lifespan, Microsoft is going to get as much as possible out of the price cut.

Some other interesting bites of information included nearly 8 billion hours logged by players worldwide on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2014, marking a 50 percent increase over 2013; more Xbox One games being sold in November and December in the US compared to other current gen platforms; and that fans spent more time on Xbox from November 24th to January 3rd than any other time during the product’s history.
