With Microsoft starting the E3 conference off with their press conference, gamers and business analysts are looking for good signs from the software and burgeoning hardware giant. Today Microsoft has announced the price of their new next generation console, the Xbox One, which will start at a price of $499.

Perhaps they are guessing what Sony will start at based on last generation’s PS3 price (Sony’s console was a more expensive purchase than the MS console). We’ll soon find out how quickly things will heat up, as Sony is poised to begin their conference show later today.
