Microsoft reverses original decision to not include either with console launch.
Microsoft’s reversals just keep coming, fast and furious. Today, the console manufacturer revealed that prior announcement of the Xbox One not including a headset at launch has been changed. Following complaints of the same, there will now be a headset included with the bundle according to official UK distributor for Microsoft Studios and Xbox products, Gem.
But that’s not all. Along with the console, Kinect 2.0 and the wireless controller, one can look forward to a 500 GB HDD, Blu-ray player and an HDMI cable (which previously was missing from the package). In the UK, this package will be retailing for £429 GBP in November when the Xbox One launches.
This isn’t the first time Microsoft has cowed before consumers demands and it most likely won’t be the last. The company in fact reversed its entire DRM policy for the Xbox One after public outcry – and pre-order numbers – convinced them it was a bad idea.
