The Xbox One continues to be updated in regions where the console was made available since the launch late last year, but new markets are opening up and Russia is on that list. We're looking at a September 5 launch and a price tag of 27,990 rubles ($810) for the full package or 22,990 rubles ($660) without the Kinect and a bundled game.
As is the norm with video game consoles, a range of accessories will be available for owners to add optional extras and expand the experience. Here's what consumers will be looking to pay for some of the official gear:
- Xbox One controller (with AA batteries) - 2,990 rubles ($90)
- Xbox One controller (with rechargable battery) - 3,499 rubles ($100)
- USB charging cable - 1,199 rubles ($35)
- Wired headset - 1,199 rubles ($35)
- Wireless stereo headset - 3,499 rubles ($100), with adapter for 1,199 rubles ($35)
- Xbox One remote controller - 1,199 rubles ($35)
A special edition Titanfall gamepad will also be available, but pricing is currently unknown. If pricing in other markets is anything to go by, we'd expect something in the region of 3,400 rubles. Numerous games will also be available at launch in Russia, including Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome and Zoo Tycoon. Console owners will be able to download and enjoy the likes of Skype and Twitch.
Will you be picking up the Xbox One later in the year?
