Microsoft announces new Xbox One with 1TB of storage and new wireless controller with 3.5mm headphone jack.

Ahead of the E3, Microsoft, on June 9, 2015, is officially announcing the availability of a new Xbox One. We heard before of Amazon slipping up and revealing a new Xbox One, but today the software giant is officially announcing the new Xbox One console featuring 1TB of storage with a new matte finish, and new redesigned wireless controller with a 3.5mm headphone jack which will begin shipping on June 16th, in United States for $399.

In addition, for a limited time only, the company will also be bundling the console with Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Today’s news also confirms that the $349 will be the permanent price for the 500GB model of Xbox One.

The new wireless controller will be available as a standalone item in black and black-silver camouflage colors. The company also announced that the new controller can be updated wirelessly without having to attach it to the console using a USB cable.
