Microsoft have officially revealed UK pricing for the Xbox One console. Set to cost £429 in the UK, the console will launch in November, right in time for the Christmas holiday rush.
Prices were announced at the company’s E3 press conference in Los Angeles today, where Microsoft were looking to win over gamers that felt left out by the entertainment-focussed Xbox One launch last month.
It’s a little higher though than the price our US counterparts will have to pay – their $499 price tag converts to closer to £329 . Europeans will pay €499 for the new machine.
For the money though it’s not a bad package, considering it includes the new controller, the new Kinect sensor, the console itself (which doubles up as a Blu-ray player and has 500GB of built-in storage) and a 14-day Xbox Live Gold trial.
We’ll be offering a full run through of the highlights of Microsoft’s Xbox One E3 press conference tomorrow, so check back then for all the new details.
