In case you somehow missed it, Microsoft announced their brand new console, the Xbox One a few days ago. And while most of its features were made public, there’s one thing Microsoft barely mentioned: availability. Right now we know very little about the pricing and launch date.
However, that doesn't mean you can’t still pre-order it. If you’re an early adopter and the Xbox One caught your eye, you can pre-order one right now from Amazon.de for €599.00. Of course this is by no means an official price, it’s just a placeholder until Microsoft announces the real cost later this year. But if you pre-order now Amazon guarantees you will receive the best price once that becomes public.
There’s also no shipping date, though Amazon.com does list December 31st as a release date. Again though, that’s a placeholder pointing at the fact that Microsoft officially said the console would be launched by the end of the year. If we were to take an educated guess we’d say the Xbox One will hit markets in time for the winter holidays.
