Xbox One gets a revamping according to news leaked by Amazon and confirmed by Microsoft recently.
Microsoft is keeping up with the console war going on on the gaming market. In a smooth move, it decided to cut 50 dollars off the price of its older Xbox One model, leaving it at a sturdy 349 dollars for a storage space of 500 GB.
The new, revamped, tweaked model features an exciting 1TB of storage space, for all gamers out there. Other perks are the updated controller with the added design tweak of a stereo jack that allows gamers to plug in directly, without the previously needed adapter.
The redesigned controller also features a wireless firmware updating system. Quite good news when you think of all the adapters hanging around the previous model for almost every action.
The 1TB is thought to appeal to gamers who, in the rush for the newest titles do not want to let go of the older ones by deleting them permanently. Probably it will also satisfy avid gamers as there is now sufficient storage space to download add-ons as opposed to constantly purchasing new discs.
Initially, the news of the 1TB Xbox One was leaked on Amazon. Soon after, Microsoft Larry Nelson confirmed the rumor and released the official news and features of the new console.
The 1TB Xbox One will be presented at the EEE – Electronic Entertainment Expo, Los Angeles on June 16th.
Its release in select locations will also be accompanied by a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
The price of the 1TB Xbox One is set at 399 dollars for now. Perhaps, future revampings and redesigns will see the price tag drop once more. It seems that Microsoft is playing the strategy quite well to win supremacy in the console market.
For instance, while Microsoft is slashing price after price and making its consoles more affordable, Sony has kept the same pricing since 2013 for the PS4.
Nonetheless, Sony managed to sell more consoles than Microsoft. This does not mean that Microsoft is not on its way for a good comeback.
The 1TB Xbox One will be launched officially on June 16th at the meager price of 399 dollars.
