The current Xbox One controller. It seems the new console will feature an upgraded version. CNET

Microsoft will soon release a roomier model of its Xbox One gaming console complete with a new controller, judging from a now-vanished listing on Amazon.com.

The post by the e-commerce giant, spotted Friday by Eurogamer.net and since removed, lists features including a more spacious, 1-terabyte hard drive, for game and media storage, and a new controller that boasts a 3.5mm headset jack, which makes an adapter unnecessary.

A 1TB Xbox One was previously available only in last year's limited-edition Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare pack, Eurogamer.net notes (the current version of the Xbox One sports a 500GB hard drive). The site also reports a release date of June 15 -- the same day as Microsoft's Xbox press conference at the E3 2015 gaming confab -- and a price of $399. It says, too, that the console bundle includes a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. (All those details seem to have disappeared from the Amazon listing by the time the following screenshot was taken, however).

Microsoft declined to comment on the Amazon posting, saying only this: "We're gearing up for an exciting E3 where we'll showcase more games and experiences. We have nothing further to share at this time."

For the last year and a half, the Xbox One has been competing against Sony's PlayStation 4 for gamers' hearts, minds and dollars, and as time has gone by, the PS4 seems to have at least won the battle for unit sales.

Sony is also reportedly planning a 1TB version of its console.
