[E32013] Xbox One dated, priced for Aussies

We can confirm that the Xbox One will be launching in Australia in November 2013, as one of the 21 confirmed launch territories. We now have details on what you'll get in the box, and how much you'll pay for it- and if you want one on Day One, you'd better get your preorderin' shoes on.

First, the magic numbers. We don't yet have a day of the month when the new console will hit. We do, however, know how much it'll set you back.

At launch, the Xbox One system will include a console (of course), which brings with it a 500GB hard drive, a blu-ray player and built in WiFi. There's also a new Kinect peripheral, a new wireless controller, and a 14-day trial of Xbox Live gold. All of this added up will cost you US$499 in North America, AU$599 in Australia, £429 (GBP) in the U.K. and €499 (EUR) in European markets.

For exactly the same price, while supplies last, you can grab a limited-edition commemorative bundle available on Day One. That'll get you an Xbox One in "premium black" packaging, plus a limited edition wireless controller, plus a unique commemorative achievement.

...plus there's a few bonus things you'll get for some games, too: Ryse, Forza Motorsport 5, Kinect Sports Rivals and Dead Rising 3.

    That’s actually pretty cheap by Australian standards. $599AU is $567USD.

    Usually most big name electronics in Australia are a lot more expensive. Like $200-300 more expensive.

    Pleasantly surprised by the price. Honestly thought it would be quite a bit more than that.

    Still not sure if I’ll buy one, but at least that’s a reasonable starting point.

    heh $499 for an XBO, Kinect and always online requirement. The whole console is a Spyware box for the NSA, I see from some of the comments some of you don’t read the news. Or maybe you guys actually like Microsoft and the Government spying on you with Windows and Xbox…

  4. […] of the reason for the Xbox One price point is due to the inclusion of Kinect 2.0. We're promised the peripheral is a "crucial" part of the […]
