Without the Kinect, the console will set buyers back around HK$3,380 (£259), INR 39,990 (£401), S$639 (£303), and NT$12,980(£257). Microsoft hasn’t revealed when the Korean console will launch but did give a price – 498,000 Korean won (£291).

These consoles don’t come with Kinect systems, as this would make them more expensive. It does however come with 14 days free Xbox Live Gold subscription and a wireless controller bundled together as a little sweetener.
