Microsoft to launch its next-gen Xbox One game console in 21 countries this November

 

After a heavily criticised presentation of its upcoming Xbox One game console last month, Microsoft did a turnaround and spent 90 minutes showing off a slew of upcoming games at its E3 showcase on Monday.
From action and adventure titles, new intellectual properties, sequels to popular franchises and peeks at exclusive games, Microsoft's focus was a direct opposite of its earlier event that mentioned very little about games, and focused instead on the Xbox One's television and connectivity features.
To be launched in 21 countries in November, the console, which comes with a new Kinect motion and voice sensor, will be priced at US$499. The company has not given any indicator if Singapore is part of the list of launch countries.
Kicking off the event with an introduction to Metal Gear Solid V, the latest sequel to the hit stealth and action franchise, Microsoft executives took to the stage to present new trailers for Dead Rising 3, Quantum Break, Project Spark, Sunset Overdrive, Forza 5 and even a new Halo title.
But the show was not all about the new console as Microsoft also unveiled a newly designed Xbox 360 console that comes with a Kinect sensor, as well as an update to its Xbox Live Gold subscription membership. From July 1, Gold subscribers can download two games - Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3 - for free from the service.
Sony, which announced the upcoming PlayStation 4 console earlier in February, is expected to announce pricing details at their E3 event later today.
