Xbox One to launch this November for $499 in US, coming to 21 markets this year

The Xbox One console will be available this November in 21 markets for $499 in the U.S, €499 in Europe and £429 in the U.K., Microsoft announced during its E3 press briefing today.

The Xbox One was revealed last month at a Microsoft press conference in Redmond, Wash., with a slew of television support features, a new Kinect and the ability to multitask seamlessly between television, gaming and entertainment applications.

The console came under fire shortly after its reveal when Microsoft announced its policies regarding privacy, used games, constant online connectivity and mandatory Kinect. Microsoft is expected to provide more information about its console policies this week.

A specific release date was not announced today.
