    Xbox One launching November 22 - Additional Day One Editions produced

    First, we hit an important milestone as we began full production of the Xbox One console recently. The culmination of many years of listening to you, our fans, developing innovative technology, and partnering with the best game and entertainment partners in the industry has brought us to this point. There is still a lot more work to do, but the teams are making excellent progress and are focused on launch.

    Speaking of launch, 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.

    As a result of this incredible consumer demand and the development progress on Xbox One, I am thrilled to share that today we are making available a limited number of additional Xbox One Day One consoles for pre-order. We have coordinated with our retail partners to make it easy for you to reserve your Xbox One today.

    Finally, in the spirit of continuing to bring new value and excitement to Xbox, I am also pleased to confirm that the development team has increased the CPU from 1.6GHz to 1.75GHz, roughly a 10% increase in CPU performance. This is on top of the 6% increase we previously announced for the GPU. What does this mean to you the gamer? It means that the Xbox One will have that much more power for developers to make their games and entertainment really shine. We're going to keep bringing more value to the Xbox One as we head towards launch building on some of the advancements we have already shared such as the 40-plus improvements to the Xbox One controller, advancements to help you find the perfect opponent and make the most of our online community, to the power of the cloud.

    And I have to mention the games - Xbox One is proving to be the best place for games, with our exclusive games winning over 100 awards at E3, driving pre-order increases of 200% in European markets after gamers first played our blockbuster line-up at gamescom, and blowing away thousands of fans at PAX Prime this weekend. Only on Xbox One will you find exclusive blockbusters like Halo, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome and Forza Motorsport 5; new digital content from titles like coming Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 coming to Xbox One first; and the FIFA 14 Ultimate Team experience you won't find anywhere else.

    November 22 is a special day in Xbox history - on this day, we first launched Xbox 360 [in the US] in 2005. Our next chapter begins in 79 days, when Xbox One becomes available. We built Xbox One to bring you the best games, unrivalled multiplayer and more entertainment than ever before. It's nearly time to say “Xbox On” and open a new world of games and entertainment.

    Yeah I don't understand why they didn't announce the date last week. Well at least we know now and can start managining our finances to compensate for 22nd November.

    Excellent. Can't believe they managed to get it out before PS4 in Europe. That'll give me a solid week to play some Xbox One before PS4 drops then I'll be officially in next gen heaven.

    One week before Black Friday that's nice for US buyers, otherwise would have been such hassle going to the stores even if they had a guaranteed copy.

    If I was in the eu, I would buy an x1 play it and trade it back in for a ps4 when that drops. That's a good launch date tho....still 13 countries, any importers?

    LOL, Black Friday is always a mess. You just toss in the two top end game console launches of the generation and it should be something special. I'm sure there will be some Black Friday deals on both consoles - Maybe $100 off, but it will be the usual - limited to supplies on hand and them having 5 units on hand at that price.

    I'll be getting my PS4 shipped to me on launch day. And I'll wait until next holiday season to see if I want to get (or my Son want's to get) an XB1. A lot of this will depend on adoption - exclusives - and if MS keeps up with the promises they made on the numerous backpedals that had a number of folks including myself pissed..

    I am glad that they are launching a week before Black Friday as puts them on even footing for the holiday season even if they're in a lot fewer EU countries at launch.

    Sucks for both getting both consoles on launch + games. Good that there's finally a release date though.

    Also, first time F34R is off base. FBoat no #truthfacts for you!

    All you lucky guys will be soaking in the excitement and action of the next-generation platforms in a few months. I'm super jealous, but I'm still going to wait a year or so and see if any kinks pop up, maybe wait for a price drop.

    Great news indeed. I am glad they have taken their time to release this console. Don't want to make the same mistakes they made with the 360 on release.
