Microsoft reveals launch date for Xbox One console

  • Microsoft announced the launch date and price for its new Xbox One console on Monday.

    The Xbox One will hit shelves in November with a recommended retail price $499.

    The announcement was made during its opening event at the E3 games expo in Los Angeles.

    Rival Sony said its console would be released during "holiday 2013".

    If the PlayStation 4 and the XBox One are launched in November, it would mark the first time the two firms have released their products at the same time.

    Previous consoles have been launched at least a year apart.
