If you’ve been putting off buying an XBox One games console due to the $600 price tag here’s some good news.

From June 9 you’ll find a new xbox one console priced at $499.  The reason for the price drop is that this particular version doesn’t come with the Kinect movement sensor.  In the video below XBox explains the reason for the move.  (note that U.S prices are quoted in the video below)

Retailers are currently taking pre-orders for the new XBox One Sku.
