The New Xbox One Could Actually Cost You £775 or $1200

Friday the 22nd November at 00:00 will see the launch of the Xbox One the all in One entertainment system from Microsoft.
But how much will your total outlay be? (EA, Microsoft, Xbox One)

My parents hate it when I spend my hard-earned money on myself, yet they hate buying things for me too.

Are you kidding?

Hey some idiot learned to add and decided to make an article! Thanks for re displaying public information! They are accessories most of which no one will end up buying! I hate these articles.

Like the steering wheel which only the most hardcore racing fans will buy.
UltimateMaster  +   320d ago
2 essential things you must buy extra are the Play and Charge kit (since the 500$ console does not come with one) and an adapter for your Headset (Or a new Headset)

That alone makes it above 550$.

Funny, I have no plans to buy either one of those things. Neither of them are necessary.

Console, extra controller, games. Who buy's a brand new console and doesn't get games?
coopman300  +   319d ago
Play and charge kit is not "necessary". And the one comes with a headset so why is it necessary to buy one.
Mikelarry  +   320d ago
775, yeah I don't see that happening anytime soon for me
abc1233  +   320d ago
Not everyone is going to get the steering wheel and headset, they're things you can easily do without and many people will just use AA batteries anyway so no need for the play and charge kit. Overall, an exaggerated figure.

Altough the play and charge kit will be more beneficial than buying and re-buying batteries. I am surprised that Microsoft did not choose the usb wireless controller. I agree with the steering wheel and also the headset. Those accessories are not really necessary.
nasnas76  +   320d ago
It's a microUSB cable. Go to the dollar store and buy one if you don't already have 6 spare ones currently in your drawer
abc1233  +   319d ago
Sure, but many people have rechargeable batteries lying around the house anyway
kingpedrok69  +   319d ago
you are right in saying that not everyone will be buying all that is in the article also i point out that a steering wheel will be Forza 5 fans first choice, whereas they probably not bother with a headset so they wont be actually buying everything did you read the article headline?

COULD COST? this is a hypothetical purchase as anyone can see.

It's a useless headline. A Wii "could cost" you thousands, it doesnt mean a pointless article should be written on it.
iamnsuperman  +   320d ago
If we are going to be like that you might as well throw in a new TV, why not a new broadband package, a house......
rainslacker  +   320d ago
Don't forget the 7.1 surround system, a car to drive the system home in, and the prostitute to keep you warm while waiting outside during the midnight launch.
kennyg3739  +   320d ago
that's why called accessory
bub16  +   320d ago
im all for ps4 but really, this article is stupid, the price is £775 because of accessories, accessories are not necessities!
Scatpants  +   320d ago
It could conceivably cost you more if you bough 50 of every game and 135 controllers it could be A FORTUNE!
HappyWithOneBubble  +   320d ago
No matter what you buying PS4 or XB1 or even Wii U for the holidays you still paying a lot of money.
patsrule316  +   320d ago
I am getting both systems at launch, but not spending much over $1200.

PS4 = $400
ACIV PS4 = $40 (Amazon B2 G1)
Lego Marvel = $40 (Same deal)
Need For Speed Rivals = $40
Dualshock 4 = $30 (Amazon takes $30 off if you trade in $30)

Total PS4 = $550

XB1 = $500
Dead Rising 3 = $48 (Best Buy GCU)
Ryse = $48 (Best Buy GCU, if I even get it)
XB1 controller = $60

Total XB1 = $656

Grand total = $1,206

Yes, when I get Infamous, Destiny, Watch Dogs, Witcher 3, Dragon Age, The Order:1886, The Division, The Witness, and others, that cost will go up, but at least until February, that is my total.

If you don't mind doing it again, I'll send you my address.
BLAKHOODe  +   320d ago
He forgot the cost of a quality HDTV and sound system and your monthly electric and internet bills.
Guwapo77  +   320d ago
Xbox demos only on UHDTVs, so that's another $4k easy. LoL. Articles like these are pretty silly indeed.
jade0732  +   320d ago
This is a silly article. lol
Goku781  +   320d ago
Is there any truth to that?
Grap  +   320d ago
who approve this?
jade0732  +   320d ago
Yep, that's what I was thinking!
nasnas76  +   320d ago
anything gets approved here
mochachino  +   320d ago
Just better hope your xone harddrive doesn't break or you'll be buying a new console.

It's ridiculous that MS doesn't allow users to upgrade the HD, there's no way many of them will last the gen.
mrpsychoticstalker  +   320d ago
I got my Xbox one email. I'm a lucky bastard.
assdan  +   320d ago
If you're a massive idiot, this thing could easily set you back $1200, good job you figured it out.
Harmy666  +   320d ago
Don't make another article ever again please. These types of articles are just pointless…

The title made me think it was an article adding up the value of the Xbox One and how much everything costs to make/build
kingpedrok69  +   319d ago
"But how much will YOUR total outlay be?"

this is quoted in the intro what else do you think it meant?

Work harder....lol
sovietsoldier  +   320d ago
i got all that and a bag of chips coming just need to take the day off and im set!
NarcolepZZZZZZ  +   320d ago
Oh wait, so if I buy games and accessories the total amount I spent will increase??? Wow. M$ really only cares about money it seems. Ps4 stuff is all free after you but the console. What a gyp.
YamiHoshi  +   320d ago
That explains why the Xbox One got delayed until 2014 over here.
Muadiib  +   320d ago
It's costing £365 for an xbox one and a copy of Ryse here in Jersey, ahhhhh I love living in a tax haven!
theAMC1981  +   319d ago
People please stop with the dumb comments over batteries or play and charge kits. Just buy a battery charger w/rechargeable batteries. I got mine off Amazon and have been using the same ones since 2007. You don't need to buy nothing but games and the console. These posts make no sense because think about how much you spend on the console as a whole anyway, so who cares how much you spend at launch because you would be buying those things anyway so why wait if that is what you want.

People keep talking about how much you will spend on Xbox One since you got to buy this and buy that, but you don't have to buy anything. What about PS4 compare the cost of a free kinect to having to buy the PS4 camera at $59.99 which since nobody wants kinect, so meaning you think the ps4 camera is pointless too, or you could just buy a game with that money.

Wait... who cares just buy what you want and tell everyone else to kiss your ass.
