Microsoft launched their Xbox One console with a 500GB internal hard drive (362GB usable) back in November of 2013. With the transition quickly being made to selling games in a digital form, the need for ample hard drive space is greater than ever. In a bizarre chain of events, it appears Amazon may have let the cat out of the bag early concerning an unannounced 1TB Xbox One model.
Earlier today, a user stumbled upon an Amazon page (that has since been taken down) which showed off a $400 Xbox One model with an upgraded 1TB hard drive as well as a new controller (with a built-in headset port) and a bundled edition of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. According to the page, this new model will begin shipping on the same day as Microsoft's E3 press event. an unlikely coincidence.
Here's a quick screen grab (posted on Twitter) of the Amazon page's description prior to its removal:
