It’s been a long road to the release date announcement for Microsoft and the company’s Xbox One.
The console’s initial reveal on May 21st was followed by something of a topsy-turvy and mystifying marketing message – a ‘journey’ you could say. The PlayStation 4 release dates have also been revealed, while a few important changes, tweaks and special reactionary allowances have been made along the way to show Microsoft isn’t out of touch with its audience, or its developers.
Xbox One will launch on November 22nd, 2013 in 13 markets, which is interesting as it puts the launch slightly after that of the PlayStation 4 in the US on November 15th, but ahead of Sony’s launch in Europe on November 29th.
The markets that will see the Xbox One this year are: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and USA. “Many more markets will follow in 2014,” says Microsoft.
