Owning an Xbox One with multiple controllers could prove to be an expensive proposition.

The console, which is slated to launch later this year for $499.99, will come with one controller. Customers who want to buy another controller, however, will need to cough up $59.99. The Xbox One's controller with the Play and Charge Kit will set customers back $74.99.

Microsoft announced the Xbox One console earlier this year and provided more details at E3 this summer. Microsoft has promised that the Xbox One will deliver vastly improved visuals, as well as a host of entertainment features, to justify its price.

When the Xbox One hits the market, it will be joined by Sony's PlayStation 4 and the already-available Wii U. Sony's console, which is the closest competitor in terms of power and graphics to the Xbox One, will be $100 cheaper when it launches later this year.

In addition to controllers, Microsoft will sell an Xbox One Chat Headset for $24.99.
