It's time for the next-generation in video gaming and with Microsoft taking centre stage first in the globally largest video gaming convention E3, it's signature Xbox One has officially been unveiled. As with a whole lineup of massive blockbuster titles and sequels such as Forza Motorsport 5, Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain, a next-gen Halo and a significant new release Titanfall, Microsoft has also announced the console's availability and pricings.

The Xbox One is set to launch this November in 21 countries, but on which countries in particular have not been detailed, and will be sold at a launch price of $499 in the US, 499 Euros in Europe and $429 in the UK which then suggests a possible price of between RM1600-RM2200 in Malaysia or similarly converted in our neighbouring Asian countries. 

Besides the US, UK and countries in Europe, some other countries that comes into mind that will also most likely make the cut for the November launch would be Australia, Singapore and Japan. I would most certainly hope that Microsoft will take into account Malaysia but as with recent trends on other Microsoft products (cue Surface Pro), there might be a little delay.

Nevertheless, if you still cant wait to get your hands on the console that will probably define the entire next 5-7 years of video gaming, Microsoft has opened up a pre-order page in the US and well, i'm pretty sure you can work your way around to get that shipped right here on our shores.
