    Wouldn't it be shipped from Asia? Therefore cheaper for it to get to Australia.

    I'm in the UK at the moment and wow at that rip off price I won't be rushing out to get one, and the fact Microsoft won't let me move my Xbox Live account between Australia and the UK or vice-versa I don't want to be setting up an account on a UK Xbox One and then being told I can't use it in Australia.

    That said I've managed to get them to set up the account with my private domain email address, that way it wasn't associated with an Aussie hotmail email, so may work now.

    Hong Kong Terminal

    Los Angeles Terminal

    B Port of Discharge: Final destination:

    Transit Time / Distance calculator

    Whether you need "port-to-port" or "door-to-door" transit time and distances, just chose any place of loading and discharging of the shipment. In several seconds you will get the duration of transit time, including inland transportation of cargo to the port of loading. Data on the transit time of shipping lines is calculated in a combined way, based on the statistical data obtained from "container tracking" service. All the data will be informatively represented on Google Map. Furthermore, you also get a layout of the estimated time costs in accordance with basic terms of delivery (Incoterms).

    Sucks to be in the UK it's double the cost at 1.621% of average wage. ouch! Guess they won't be selling many in the UK!

    And I thought we were getting ripped off in Australia. Gav you coming back anytime soon?

    My wage isn't as high as the Aussie average and still think the extra $50 over what the US is paying to be cruel and terrible of Microsoft to Aussie gamers!! I won't be buying one until they can guarantee no red ring of death like my Xbox 360 got!!

    Pre-Order Xbox One for release date of November 22nd to get FIFA 14 full game download.

    The Xbox One release date is 22nd of November and if you get it from Big W (currently the cheapest place I've found for pre-order) for $598 you get:

    Buy Xbox One Console | Read Reviews | BIG W Online Store Australia

    Pre-Order Xbox One $598 and receive FIFA 14 full game download

    Xbox One is a state of the art gaming console, a new generation TV and movie system and a whole lot more.
