New Xbox One 1TB Console Unveiled, Xbox One 500GB Consoles Reduced to £299.99
The New Xbox One 1TB consoles will begin shipping immediately for £349.99 MSRP. And starting today, the £299.99 price on all standard Xbox One 500GB consoles will be permanent in the United Kingdom and select regions around the world.
The updated New Xbox One Wireless Controller includes volume and mute controls on gaming headsets so fans will have the option to adjust headset volume, mic monitoring, and voice and game audio balance through the Settings menu on their console. In addition to audio improvements, we’ve fine-tuned the bumpers for more consistent performance anywhere along the full surface of the bumper.
Now let’s take a closer look at the new Xbox One Wireless Controller, shipping with future consoles moving forward, and now featuring a 3.5mm stereo headset jack that lets you plug your favorite gaming headset right into the controller. With the updated controller, in addition to the volume and mute controls on gaming headsets, you’ll also have the option to adjust headset volume, mic monitoring, and voice and game audio balance through the Settings menu on your console. We’ve also improved the quality of audio coming through the controller and increased the maximum audio volume on headsets used with this controller, based on fan feedback. All existing controller accessories will work with the updated controller, including the Stereo Headset Adapter for those who want the convenience of fingertip control for their audio.
In addition to audio improvements, we’ve fine-tuned the bumpers for more consistent performance anywhere along the full surface of the bumper. And we’ve enabled wireless firmware updates on the updated controller which eliminates having to connect the controller via USB cable to receive updates. What’s more, fans will be able to purchase the new controller as a standalone item in black as well as a new camouflage design in silver and black with the New Xbox One Special Edition Covert Forces Wireless Controller, which starts to ship to retailers from 16th June.
