The lights are on
Microsoft announced that the Xbox One will be available this November and it will cost $499.99.
There will be a single SKU and it will cost €499 and £429 in other territories, and releases in the same month. We were unsure if Microsoft was planning to announce the price of its new console at E3, or if it was planning to withhold the information for a later date.
The Xbox 360 launched for $399.99 back in 2005.

Lol, Sony it is. What a joke.
Kinda overpriced but whatever.
I'm still not okay with anything about this system.
500 plus the yearly xbl cost, which will be raised.
Much too much.
I was expecting worse. With their new policies in place I still won't get one.
TOTAL= 559.98+tax? .....No thanks
Yowch. Hopefully the PS4 is in the $399 area.
Yet another reason why I HIGHLY dislike Microsoft's gaming division of the comapny. That charge the living crap out of you for everything. Hopefully many MANY people will figure out what Microsoft is all about this time around.
$500 for a system that essentially takes away every gaming freedom. Somehow I'm not tempted.
To be fair, even if the thing was sold for $50 I would rather spend my money on a used PS4 game. Sounds like a better deal to me.
I'm shocked they actually revealed price so early. Who wants to bet they're going to "surprise" announce the contract price sku just in time for Xmas season.
PS4 is probably going to be cheaper.
Dang. Now I KNOW I'm not getting X-Bone. If the PS4 is $400, AND with, say, a great looking Jak and Daxter sequel or Uncharted 4, then the mass X-Box exodus will amazing to see.
I will only sacrifice around $400 but around $500....I hear my piggybank calling my name to scrape for change...rough price
I thought one Euro was worth more than one American Dollar. I know the value of a Euro is always fluctuating, but it's always higher than a dollar, no? So doesn't this mean that consumers in Europe are being charged more?
