LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp said on Monday its new Xbox One console would be launched in November at a price of $499 in the United States.

The price is greater than its current console, the Xbox 360, but it includes a Kinect motion sensor for hands-free game playing.

Microsoft announced the Xbox One in May as the latest move in its rivalry with Nintendo Co Ltd and Sony Corp in the video game business.
