Following the revelation of a fact sheet detailing the launch day offerings of the Xbox One console shortly after its announcement, a debate has raged as to the decision not to include a headset. Today it’s been confirmed that this decision has been reversed, as an updated list of the contents has been revealed.
The Xbox One hardware bundle will now include the Xbox One console featuring a 500GB hard disk drive and Blu-ray player, the new version of Kinect, a HDMI cable, and a redesigned wireless controller in addition to a wired Chat Headset. This package will be available from an unspecified date in November 2013, with a recommended retail price (RRP) of £429 GBP.
This news comes from the official UK distributor for Microsoft Studios and Xbox products, Gem, who have communicated the above contents list to their retail partners. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Xbox One launch and hardware bundle.
UPDATE: An ongoing debate as to the validity of this communication from Gem has lead to Electronic Theatre contacting Microsoft directly for clarification. This story will be updated further when additional information becomes available.
