Microsoft is finally taking the wraps off its latest flagship console, and it looks like it’s going to be more than just a “tick up” for gamers who want to spend more time playing games on their own.
The Xbox One is set to go on sale to the public in a handful of countries on October 14th, and while there’s no word yet on pricing for the console, it will reportedly cost around $400 in North America and around $500 in Europe.
That’s a steep price tag for a console that is set for release in late 2019, but it’s likely that Microsoft has found a way to make the Xbox one more affordable than it is currently.
The Xbox One S will also go on offer on October 13th for $500 more than the Xbox model currently on sale, and there are also plans to offer an Xbox One Classic in North and South America, which Microsoft says will cost $600.
That might be the best possible price tag if the Xbox 1X is a significant upgrade to the original Xbox One, but if you’re looking for a cheaper option for gamers looking to get back into gaming, you may want to wait a bit longer to get your hands on the Xbox X.
