As part of Microsoft’s ongoing promotion and rebranding of the Xbox One console, the Xbox division has announced plans to release a separate SKU for those interested in getting the Xbox One at a cheaper price.
Set to release on June 9th alongside Microsoft’s E3 press conference, the new Xbox One SKU will release a core system with all of the features of the original model, minus the addition of the Kinect camera system. Priced at $399, Microsoft hopes that this cheaper model will be able to go toe-to-toe with Sony’s strong market share of next-gen gaming.
