The battle of next-gen officially hots up!. We know the release date of the PlayStation 4 and now its time for Microsoft to share the release date for the Xbox One!.
There have been rumors going around for a while now whether the Xbox One will come in early or late November but all rumors can now stop as its now official… The Xbox One will be released in both the US and the UK on November 22nd!
Yusuf Mehdi, vice president of marketing, strategy and business at Xbox also shared the following key announcements to go with the release date:
- This week, Xbox One began full production in our preparation for launch: a product culminating from many years of listening to you, our fans, developing innovative technology, and working with the best game and entertainment partners in the industry has brought us to this point.
- Xbox One pre-orders have sold out at many retailers, putting us on track for the biggest Xbox launch ever, and we’ve worked hard to ensure an additional supply of Xbox One Day One consoles are now available for pre-order via our retail partners.
- Our development teams have increased the CPU from 1.6GHZ to 1.75GHZ, roughly a 10 percent increase in CPU performance. This is in addition to the 6% increase we previously announced for the GPU a few weeks ago. The result is that Xbox One will have that much more power for developers to make their games and entertainment really shine.
November is set to be a huge month now with both next-generation consoles hitting but here at NGB we say bring it on!.
