Microsoft Announces 1TB Xbox One and New Xbox One Controller

Microsoft has confirmed that the 1TB Xbox One console and new Xbox One Controller outed by Amazon is real. The 1TB model will be the new premium Xbox One model, retailing at $399 starting June 16. All 500GB Xbox One models will retail for $349.99.

The 1TB model doesn’t differ much from the 500GB models content-wise. The box is still the same, though now with a matte finish. Inside you’re getting a slightly redesigned Xbox One controller and a wired mic. A code for Halo: The Master Chief Collection is also included. The boxing showcases exclusive games Halo 5: Guardians and Forza Motorsport 6, and timed exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider.

So what’s so new about this “new” Xbox One controller? Well, the controller now includes a 3.5mm stereo jack. Thanks to this addition, you’ll now be able to plug in any headset you currently own. This controller comes in two colors – black and Special Edition Covert Forces – and costs $65, $5 more than a standard Xbox One controller. Microsoft also confirmed that the Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows will be available this fall for $25. There will also be a bundle containing the adapter and an Xbox One controller for $80.
