Xbox One will be Available on November 22 in 13 Initial Launch Markets

Microsoft has officially confirmed the launch date of its much awaited next-gen gaming console of Xbox One. Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing, Strategy and Business at Xbox, has announced today that Xbox One will initially be launched in 13 major markets on November 22, 2013 at price of $499 or €499 or £449. These markets include Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and USA. He also said that other areas will get Xbox One in 2014. 

Mehdi also announced Xbox One pre-orders were sold out faster than ever in U.S. He expects 'to have the biggest launch of an Xbox ever.' Due to high demand, a limited number of additional Xbox One Day One consoles for pre-orders are now available today for gamers to celebrate their holiday.

Microsoft has also increased the CPU speed by 10 percent approximately. 1.6GHZ CPU is now upgraded to 1.75GHZ to give more processing power. Tech giant has already made 40 plus improvements in its next-gen gaming console of Xbox One to make it work better than ever.

Yusuf Mehdi also said in his blog post , "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 week-end. 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 "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."
