Xbox One Release Date Confirmed


Microsoft have just confirmed the official launch date for the Xbox One.

We’re now in a position to share that Xbox One will be available on November 22, 2013 in all 13 of our initial launch markets – Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and USA. Many more markets will follow in 2014.

We are humbled and gratified by the tremendous interest in Xbox One from game fans everywhere. We sold out of our pre-order supply faster than at any other time in our history and we are on path to have the biggest launch of an Xbox ever. We look forward to celebrating with millions and millions of gamers this holiday.
— Yusuf Mehdi, Vice President of Marketing, Strategy and Business, Xbox

He also confirmed that the development team has increased the CPU from 1.6GHZ to 1.75GHZ, roughly a 10 percent increase in CPU performance. This is on top of the 6% increase they previously announced for the GPU. 

November 22 is a special day in Xbox history – on this day, Microsoft first launched Xbox 360 in 2005. Are you as excited for this as we are? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
