When the pre-orders eventually open, the console will run buyers US $500, £ 449, and AU $649. The device will be hitting store shelves on November 7th globally and according to the company, it is the smallest console they have ever sold. Microsoft also revealed recently that the console will be able to stand vertically, a design choice that was featured on the Xbox 360 and ditched with the original Xbox One.
Spencer also confirmed on Twitter that their upcoming exclusive Crackdown 3, also releasing on November 7th, will be featured at the upcoming conference Gamescom in August. This comes after Microsoft’s big reveal of the character Terry Crews will play in the upcoming title.
