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.

$500 dollars, that seems a tad high for what is inside the machine
Holy sh**, EU & UK getting robbed blind (myself included if i were to want an Xbox)!!
The price is exactly what I expected , where do I sign ?
FYI, It's available for pre-order on Amazon right now.
I am expecting Sony to match this price. My guess for the PS4 has been 500 dollars for weeks. This is because Sony learned that 600 is just too much, but the technology isn't that much cheaper. Now that Microsoft has hit 500, Sony will be safe at 500. I'm still hoping for a surprise undercut by Sony which would give them a HUGE leg up in the next console war and would save me a bit of green :)
I'm still on the fence.... I will listen for what PS4, has to offer. The price is tad too high for me.
For what is included an only $100 more than the Xbox 360 was eight years ago, I think this is reasonable. It's still cheaper than the $600 price tag the PS3 started with and I'm curious to see how Sony will respond to this. I'll definitely be picking up an Xbox One as they have some amazing titles (Titanfall and Halo 5 are just two mentions worth noting).
to me this seems like a reasonable price jump as it has been 8 years and the economy has inflated since then.
you can thank the mandatory Kinect for that price jump.
Well Iam not exactly suprised...I never cared for the system no matter what the price..I wouldnt buy it if it was 100 euros.
Hmm... PS4 will most likely be cheaper. I sort of like what I'm seeing so far.

Price is too high, but it's still the console I'm going with
I suppose it could be worse...

Xbox isn't moving. Xbox is unresponsive.
