By Jimmy with JimsReviewRoom - _June 1st, 2015
Rumors are now confirmed as early this morning, Xbox's Major Nelson reveals the new 1tb system. And it seams to be a strong focus on storage as now the Xbox One can extend is saving capabilities with an external USB 3.0 flash drive.
And besides the additional storage, there's new matte black paint covering the system removing that glossy black finish.
With this new system, a new and improved Xbox controller will be offered. The most notable feature is similar to what Playstation currently offers with their Dual Shock, a 3.5mm headphone port built right into the controller, offering users to connect headphones/headsets on the fly, offering universal use of other non Microsoft products. Just when you need some quiet gaming, grab your nearest earbuds and they should be good to go.
You'll have on screen options and menus to adjust the headset volume, mic input, and balance voice and gaming audio. Lastly, per the press article, all existing controller accessorizes will work with the updated controller.
Besides the audio features, Major Nelson explains Microsoft has fine-tuned the bumpers for consistent performance. You can purchase the controller in the standard and traditional black, or the new CAMO as shown in the picture above.
And last, Microsoft is offering a USB stick to put in the back of your PC running WIndows 10, and you'll have your controller to use on your PC seamlessly.
When does this all happen?
Microsoft is releasing the 1TB console with the new controller to retailers June 16th in the US for the price of $399 usd. In additional, the now "old" console featuring 500gb of storage is permanently $349 usd here in the states.
