Xbox pricing and release date

— 12:58 PM on May 16, 2001

We all know what's inside. Now ZDNet has the goods on when you'll be able to get one, and how much it's going to cost you.

Microsoft's said the Xbox will be available at a estimated retail price of $299.99, making it competitive with Sony's $300 price tag for the PlayStation 2. The company said the Xbox will be available in North America on Nov. 8, 2001.
Sounds like a steal of a deal to me, if consoles are your thing. The lack of DVD movie support out of the box is a little lame, but consoles are really about the games. If pre-E3 hype is any indication, there should be plenty to play on the Xbox come November.
