Ahead of this year's E3 rumours were flying that Microsoft would have some kind of hardware announcements surrounding its Xbox One console, which it today confirmed detailing a new 1TB Xbox One, coming this month, alongside a new, updated Xbox One controller complete with 3.5mm stereo headset jack.

The new console will be available in Australia from June 24 at EB Games and JB Hi-Fi (and other 'selected' retailers) for AUD$549, while a new wireless adapter for the Xbox One controller for Windows is also "coming soon" and will be priced at AUD$39.95.
Now let’s take a closer look at the new Xbox One Wireless Controller, shipping with future consoles moving forward, and now featuring a 3.5mm stereo headset jack that lets you plug your favorite gaming headset right into the controller. With the updated controller, in addition to the volume and mute controls on gaming headsets, you’ll also have the option to adjust headset volume, mic monitoring, and voice and game audio balance through the Settings menu on your console. We’ve also improved the quality of audio coming through the controller and increased the maximum audio volume on headsets used with this controller, based on fan feedback. All existing controller accessories will work with the updated controller, including the Stereo Headset Adapter for those who want the convenience of fingertip control for their audio. In addition to audio improvements, we’ve fine-tuned the bumpers for more consistent performance anywhere along the full surface of the bumper. And we’ve enabled wireless firmware updates on the updated controller which eliminates having to connect the controller via USB cable to receive updates. What’s more, fans will be able to purchase the new controller as a standalone item in black as well as a new camouflage design in silver and black with the Xbox One Special Edition Covert Forces Wireless Controller.

I need a new controller for my PC. My other Wireless Xbox controller crapped out on me. But I think I'll hold out and give the steam controller a whirl.

You know what'd be nice? If they simply allowed you to put any damn hard drive you wanted in there.

I said "simply", according to what I've read you have to dismantle the entire console to get the hard drive out. Compared to the PS4 which you just remove the cover.
