Microsoft has cut the price of four of its Xbox One games permanently to $49.99, but the company has denied rumors it is making plans to cut the price of the console itself in the near future.

Microsoft's Xbox Live programming head Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb posted word on his blog that Ryse: Son of Rome, Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3 and Kinect Sports Rivals are now priced at $49.99, but in their digital download and in their retail disc versions. That doesn't mean there won't be sales that will cut the prices of those games even more in the future, but those titles won't be sold for more than $49.99 from now on.

However, rumors about a price cut for the console itself hit the Internet earlier this week when the mobile version of the Spanish Xbox One website listed a price of €349.99, which is €50 lower than the current price. TechRadar contacted Microsoft and a spokesperson told the company that the Spanish site listing was made "in error" and there are no plans to cut the price of the Xbox One.

What do you think about the price cuts for those four Xbox One games and do you wish Microsoft would cut the price of the console itself?
