Xbox One Launching 22nd November Worldwide

Xbox One

Counter to most game releases, where different territories have their own preference for which day of the week it hits the shelves, Microsoft's next-gen Xbox One console will be released on the 22nd November across all markets.

Those include: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and USA.

That's a Friday, for those wondering. So you'll be able to pick it up on midnight and potentially game your way through 48 hours straight - though we wouldn't recommend it.

The 22nd November is also the date that the original Xbox 360 was launched back in 2005, so the Xbox One goes on sale exactly eight years later.

On top of this news, Microsoft also announced that the Xbox One was now in full production, which should mean that all pre-orders will be filled and that there will be a decent number of systems on launch day. But more than that, Microsoft is also opening up pre-orders again, so if you haven't done so yet and you want to, you can now put down a deposit to receive your $500 Xbox One, guaranteed, on launch day.

To do so, head here.

We also learned today that the Xbox One has had its CPU clock improved from 1.6GHz to 1.75GHz. While this won't do much in practical application, it does mean that technically, the Xbox One CPU is faster than the PS4s.

We're back to the days of Blast Processing it seems.
