1TB Xbox One confirmed for $399 on June 16, 500GB version permanently priced at $349

After previously leaking on Amazon last week, Microsoft has confirmed it will begin selling a version of the Xbox One console with a 1TB hard drive starting on June 16 for $399 in the US.

Microsoft says that the 1TB version will come with the revamped Xbox One Wireless Controller with its new 3.5mm stereo headset jack. People who buy the console in the US and other select markets will also be able to get the game Halo: The Master Chief Collection for free.

In addition, the current 500GB version of the Xbox One will now have a permanent price cut to $349 in the US, the UK, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and India. Microsoft had previously said the lower price was a "promotion" but never offered a date for when it would expire.
