Microsoft reveal Xbox One price and release window

Microsoft have announced the price and release date for the Xbox One. 

The next-generation console will launch in November in 21 markets around the world, with a UK price tag set at £429. The US market will see the console on sale for $499.

The price is fairly high, but it's a relief compared to the rumoured £600 price point that was circulating from retailers a few weeks ago.

£429 is more than I wanted to pay, but I'm sure there will be some good deals floating about.

About £100 more than I would have priced it at. Sony has this in the bag if they announce a price at £350-£399

He has to have f'ed up when he announced the price, $499 in £ is like £320, not £420, they have hiked on an extra £100 for what exactly? I know for a fact that won't be getting most of the features that the US gets as well.

Meh, I'll buy it in a year or so when it's a lot cheaper, unless Dead Rising 3 gets ported as I suspect it will.

You must be joking with that price. That's more than the PS3 was at launch! And the PS3 was $599 in the US at launch, Xbone is a hundred dollars below that! This should have been £350 at most. I swear to god, every time I say this console can't get any worse... it gets worse.

The price is stupid. I don't understand why we should pay more than the americans. I will still be getting one though. I am not pre-ordering the console until I see some bundles so hope ShopTo has some good ones! ;)

Totally Robi, but every time a new console price is released everyone bitches about the exchange rate like it's never happened before.

I liked the conference but the price and all the restrictions means I won't be buying it as much as I liked dead rising 3 I can't justify spending so much on a console that won't play games if I lose internet access for 24hrs or more. I just really hope sony don't do the same with the PS4.

It's 499 euros which is around £430. The PS3 cost more than that when it come out. It's no surprise and it still cost less than a half-decent gaming pc and it's future proofed for about a decade.

If you take the VAT off it's £343. In the USA states have varying levels of tax that I believe has still to be added to the base price quoted.

Taking the VAT off makes it £357.50

People forget the cost MS have to fork out for shipping this product to Europe etc don't have to ship it in USA hence price difference. .so price wise I think its not bad at all I suspected 400 minimum

Bulk shipping really wouldn't be that much, they aren't sending them individually by the postal service.

The console isn't shipped from the USA, it's China, where it's made.

I doubt it cost £100 to ship to UK though, plus changing the power plug to fit UK sockets wouldn't cost much I don't think, can't see what else pushes the price up.

cant see how people can complain so much about the price! its not loads more than the ps3 was years and years ago so really its not that bad and its not like its a yearly purchase this will last 10+ years not like your being forced to buy it so why complain about it, i for 1 will be paying 429 quid because i dont think its that bad i was expecting 500-600 quid so im happy!

David could I please ask you to read over the stuff you type because most of the time it's just jibberish and makes no sense.

"“ Jay< Don said the console wont drop the price for xbox one next year mate he say." I gather what you mean from this is "“ Jay< Don said the console wont drop in price for the xbox one till next year mate." But I could be wrong. I'm not trying to be a douche about it, it's just so peoe fully understand and don't take something the wrong way.

I think the price is just a little bit more than I wanted to pay, but I think justified because of all the new features and the camera that comes with it. Will be getting it.
