Xbox One Release Date Confirmed For 13 Countries, Pre-Order Incentives Announced

Xbox One launchMicrosoft have put an end to speculation about the release of their Xbox One console, announcing last night a release date of November 22nd in 13 territories: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and USA, with a continuing launch window in other territories extending into 2014.

This puts the Australian release date of the Xbone a week before Sony’s Playstation 4 console, which are both poised to capitalise on the Christmas retail period. Australians also have the added incentive of a bundled copy of FIFA 14 with any Xbox One Preorder, and will cost $599AUD.
