Xbox One set for NZ November release

Fuelling the excitement from the Xbox One reveal on May 21, Microsoft has announced launch details for the highly anticipated next Xbox gaming and entertainment system.

Launching in New Zealand in November 2013, Microsoft says Xbox One "is the ultimate all-in-one entertainment system built for the 21st century living room."

Every Xbox One system sold will include the new Xbox One console — which features a 500GB hard drive, Blu-ray player and built-in Wi-Fi — the new Kinect, one Xbox One Wireless Controller and a free 14-day trial of Xbox Live6 Gold for new members, with the bundle available for $749 RRP in New Zealand.

To celebrate the launch of Xbox One, Microsoft is also introducing a limited-edition commemorative bundle to fans that reserve the system at major retailers, available in limited quantities, while supplies last.

Reserving the commemorative bundle will guarantee that you’ll be able to purchase the new system on day one.

Each commemorative bundle will include an Xbox One system that comes in premium black packaging with a limited edition Xbox One Day One wireless controller, as well as a unique commemorative Day One Achievement.

Gamers who reserve the following exclusive Xbox One Day One edition launch titles, available in limited quantities at major retailers while supplies last, will receive special bonus content:

· “Ryse: Son of Rome.5” Exclusive multiplayer map and sword with bonus attributes.

· “Forza Motorsport 5.5” Access to four cars tuned to the top of their class.
