Microsoft has updated and made the Xbox One cheaper prior to the E3 2015.

The E3 2015, or Electronic Entertainment Expo, will kick off on June 16 and will last through June 18 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. As expected, Microsoft will unveil huge Xbox news for the company's media briefing in the event.

The tech giant, however, decided to give their fans a surprise when they recently announced the Xbox One 1TB console, Xbox.com reported.

The brand-new game console comes with a matte finish and more memory storage for users' games and media files, the news outlet noted. The increased on-board storage of the device is a definite treat for those who avidly play the latest blockbuster games. Its ability to hold extended game storage was improved by an additional USB 3.0 drive.

The updated console is also equipped with an improved wireless controller, which now has a 3.5mm stereo headset jack so users can plug in any old pair of headphones, Xbox.com added. Aside from these, the price of standard Xbox One 500GB consoles has now dropped to $349 in the United States and in select locations.

The news outlet wrote that the Xbox One 1TB consoles "will start shipping to retailers June 16 in the United States and select markets later this month and will be available starting at $399 USD ERP.*"

According to NBC, the Xbox One 1TB console will come with "Halo: The Master Chief Collection," a set of the first four Halo games which also includes extra content. The collection will allow gamers to catch up on the Halo games before "Halo 5: Guardians" gets released later this year.

Gamers are now able to adjust headset volume, mic monitoring, and balance voice and game audio thanks to the wireless controller previously mentioned, Xbox.com explained. By tinkering to the Settings menu on the console, these features can be modified along with volume and mute controls on gaming headsets.

"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," the news outlet added.

Aside from the audio developments, the tech giant also fine-tuned the bumpers "for more consistent performance anywhere along the full surface of the bumper," Xbox.com wrote. The wireless firmware updates on the new controller are also enabled. This way, gamers wouldn't have to connect the controller via USB cable to get updates.

The wireless controller comes in black and a new camouflage design bearing silver and black. To get a sneak peek on the brand-new console and controller, check out Xbox.com's site.
