An Xbox One price has been listed by leading online outlet Amazon, with the retail giant suggesting the next-gen console will cost £599.99 in the UK.
With the German arm of the retailer yesterday listing the upcoming console and PS4 rival alongside a 599 Euro price tag, a fee that converts to £512 in British coin, Amazon UK has now got in on the act, suggesting Microsoft’s next-gen gamer will cost a penny shy of the £600 mark.
Far from the first time an Xbox One price has leaked, last week online outlet Zavvi claimed the 360 follow-on would cost £399, with the former high street chain also pointing towards a November 30 Xbox One release date in the UK.
Allowing gamers to secure their next-gen console, the Amazon UK Xbox One pre-order listing suggests the device could be a bit of a bank breaker. While a £600 Xbox One price will be sure to deter many, Amazon has suggested that if the price changes and is lowered, early buyers will be refunded the difference. Although a precise Xbox One release date is still to be confirmed, Microsoft revealed during the console’s unveiling that it would launch “later this year.”
Xbox One Features
Prepped as a true home entertainment powerhouse, the Xbox One is far more than a mere games console, with Microsoft bestowing the device with all manner of multimedia credentials.
Powered by an eight-core processor and 8GB of RAM, the Xbox One specs sheet sees a 500GB HDD and integrated Blu-ray player also thrown into the mix.
Set to come boxed with a second-generation Kinect peripheral, the Xbox One will allow gamers to turn on the console simple by saying “Xbox on.” Pairing a 1080p Full HD wide-angle camera with an inbuilt microphone array, the revised Kinect is to allow for all manner of voice and motion based input options.
