Xbox One pricing revealed


May 4, 2013
When it announced its new Xbox One console last month, Microsoft omitted a few key details, much to the frustration of a great many people. While the company has shared plenty of details since then - including details of its need for an internet connection and used game policies - two of the most important questions remained unanswered: how much and how soon?

Today, at its Xbox keynote at E3 2013, Microsoft finally announced pricing for the new console, which will go on sale in 21 countries this November. In the US, the console - which will include a Kinect sensor and one wireless controller - will launch for $499 USD.

In Europe, the launch price will be €499 EUR, while in the United Kingdom, buyers will have to pay £429 GBP at launch.
