The Xbox One Day One Edition.

ORIGINAL STORY: Microsoft has finally named a price and release window for Xbox One. The console will be available in the UK this November, priced £429.

It will also be available in November in North America, priced $499, and in mainland Europe priced €499.

In total, the console will launch in 25 countries in November.

Microsoft mentioned a "Day One Edition" of the console, although didn't mention what that would contain. A thank you card from Microsoft, perhaps?

£429 is £129 more expensive than the Premium Wii U launched at last year. Sony has yet to name a PlayStation 4 price, but may do in its own press conference at 2am UK time tonight.
