Microsoft's Xbox One console went on sale today in more than a dozen countries around the world, causing consumers to queue up in Australia, New Zealand, the U.S. and other nations. The Xbox One is retailing for $500, while Sony's new PlayStation 4 is priced at $400. Microsoft is using the new console to drive more demand for its cloud-based services and other devices. "We're thinking more about our devices as a stage for all of Microsoft," Microsoft’s Julie Larson-Green said.
