$400 Xbox One Launching In June

Microsoft unveiled today that they will be releasing a new Xbox One that will cost only $400 in store, matching up to the $450 price tag that the Playstation 4 has in Canada and other countries throughout the world. This new Xbox One won’t have the Kinect, thus by making the device cheaper for Microsoft to sell to consumers.

This is sure to bring in a mass amount of revenue for Microsoft as the Xbox One will not match the Playstation 4 in nearly every country and will be cheaper than the Playstation 4 in others. Canadian Gamers have to game $450 for a Playstation 4 while American Gamers have to pay $400 for the same device, this is a result of a border patrol issue that occurred in British Columbia when the PS4 was first released. Essentially the market is now tied and it all depends on what console you prefer, what games they have to offer and how the consoles performs with its U.I.

Microsoft made this announcement as a surprise, making the announcement through their website and an email to anyone who is registered with the Xbox Email List. Phil Spencer, the Head of Xbox said the following during the announcement: “We have heard the cries from our fans, you all want an Xbox One that doesn’t have the Kinect Attachment alongside it. This has resulted in us being able to sell the console for a cheaper price, $400 to be exact. We cannot wait to see how this benefits Xbox and Gamers everywhere.”
