Xbox One X will set you back $649 in Australia
Microsoft's new console powerhouse comes at a premium price.
UPDATE 19/09/2017: If you're looking for a steal on an Xbox console, look no further than our guide to the best prices on Xbox One X.
ORIGINAL STORY: Shortly after Microsoft's surprisingly exciting E3 conference, which revealed the Xbox One X, Forza 7, Metro Exodus, backward compatibility for original Xbox games and gave us a longer look at Bioware's Anthem, Aussie reps have confirmed local pricing for the beastly console.
The Xbox One X will set Aussie punters back $649 when it launches 7 November 2017.
That's close to what most pundits were estimating before the announcement, but it's still a pretty penny.
For comparison, the PS4 Pro currently costs $90 less at $559 and the Nintendo Switch (which to be fair, isn't comparable) costs $469. You can also pick up an Xbox One S for $399 (and often at a much lower price on sale).
Couple the need for a 4K TV with HDR to truly take advantage of the Xbox One X and you've got yourself one pricey package.
