E3 has come early for Xbox fans, as Microsoft has unveiled an exciting upgrade to its home console, the Xbox One 1TB. This package also includes the newly designed Xbox One Wireless controller and in select regions for a limited time, Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Xbox One 1TB consoles will start shipping to retailers June 16 in the United States and select markets later this month and will be available starting at $399 USD ERP. The standard Xbox One 500GB consoles will remain at $349 in the United States and select regions.
The new Xbox One Wireless Controller now features a 3.5mm stereo jack that lets you plug a headset right into the controller. You’ll have the option to adjust headset volume, mic monitoring, and voice and game audio balance through the settings menu on your console. In addition to audio improvements, we’ve fine-tuned the bumpers and enabled wireless firmware updates on the updated controller which eliminates having to connect the controller via USB cable to receive updates. What’s more, you can purchase the new controller ($64.99 U.S. MSRP) as a standalone item in black as well as a new camouflage design in silver and black with the Xbox One Special Edition Covert Forces Wireless Controller.
