Microsoft’s new edition of the Xbox One has twice the storage. A new controller with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack was also revealed. The 500GB Xbox One will get cheaper.
Xbox One with 1TB storage
The first edition of Xbox One offered 500GB and the new version has double that at 1TB. If that is still not enough for you, it is now possible to connect an external hard drive for games via USB. Besides that the game console remains unchanged.
Microsoft has also announced a new game controller with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack that allows you to use any headphones you want. The old version used Microsoft’s own port. In addition, the analog “bumpers” have seen a minor update. Silver and "camouflage" versions are also available for individual purchase.
Lastly, Microsoft has launched a small $25 USB device for Windows 10. It allows you to use the Xbox controller for PC games.
The 1TB Xbox One will be available from June 16 in the US for $399 and later this month in other regions. The current 500GB Xbox One is now available for $350.
This year’s E3 conference in Las Angles will kick off next week. We expect to hear much more from the game and hardware companies, including lots of news about virtual reality.
