This week’s Pricefall begins with some news on incoming price changes on hardware. First, the Xbox One will soon be sold without Kinect for $399.99, the same price as a PS4. Speaking of Sony, there are rumors going around that there could be a new retail price for the PlayStation Vita of $179.99, based off a contest that lists the Vita at that number for “average retail value.” None of this is confirmed of course. In other news, Target is offering triple trade-in value for select video games. This is limited to games in their trade-in catalog (though reports indicate most current/last-gen games are accepted), and trade-ins must include the case and manual. Beyond that, we have a number of sales for you this week, and have rounded up the various pre-order bonuses available for Mario Kart.
