Microsoft has FINALLY announced that it’s next-gen console, the Xbox One will launch in 13 markets, including North America, on November 22. The release is right behind Sony’s next-gen console release, the PS4 which hits shelves on November 15th.
The Xbox One will have a price set of $500 in the US, €500 in Europe, and £430 in the UK. The Standard Edition will include the system, new Kinect sensor, Chat headset, and controller, as well as necessities including an HDMI cable, power supply, and Quick Start guide. Day One editions are also available at the same price, swapping out the Standard controller for a unique Day One controller with chrome d-pad, while also bundling in a Day One achievement code along with special packaging. In Europe, all Day One pre-orders score a free copy of FIFA 14.
The November 22 release date includes Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom, United States and New Zealand. Meanwhile, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and Switzerland, all initially on the launch list, won’t see the Xbox One arrive until 2014.
