Microsoft has finally unveiled the official release date for the Xbox One.
The next-gen console will hit the previously mentioned 13 countries on Nov. 22, which is the same launch day as the Xbox 360 in Nov. 2005.
For those in Europe, more Xbox One – Day One systems have been made available for pre-order, which come with a copy of FIFA 14.
“We are humbled and gratified by the tremendous interest in Xbox One from game fans everywhere. We have sold out of our pre-order supply in the U.S. 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,” said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing, Strategy and Business, Xbox.
As was rumored for sometime now, Mehdi also did confirm that the Xbox One’s CPU has in fact been upgraded from 1.66GHz to 1.75GHz, which is on top of the added 6% increase for the GPU.
“Our next chapter begins in 79 days, when Xbox One becomes available. We built Xbox One to bring you the best games, unrivaled multiplayer and more entertainment than ever before. It’s nearly time to say “Xbox On” and open a new world of games and entertainment,” added Mehdi.
