The Xbox One Has Halo 5, Will Cost $499

Microsoft revealed the price ($500) and release month (November) of the Xbox One at an E3 event today.

After game previews for both Halo 5 (with Master Chief wearing a piece from the 2014 flowing brown desert collection), and Titanfall (Call of Duty with mechs and jetpacks), execs made heavy mention of cloud computing and 60-frame-per-second visuals.

To make up for the horrible news of the console not being backwards compatible, Microsoft has announced that they will be giving away big-name games to Gold subscribers every month until the One’s release.

From Kotaku:

Xbox Live Subscribers Finally Get Some Free Games

Fable III is free starting today, with Halo 3 and Assassin’s Creed II to follow. Then there will be two per month until the Xbox One launches. That’s a dozen freebies by my count.

If you haven’t already heard, the Xbox One will allow you to install and share games with up to ten people on any console, in any location.

Since Microsoft Points will be replaced for cold hard cash, I assume these shared games will become the new thing for seedy guys to offer female gamers in exchange for friendship and/or boob pics.

So much good news. I’m sh*tting Funyun dust. Click here for a The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt trailer.
