Xbox One release date confirmed
Microsoft will launch the Xbox One a week ahead of the PlayStation 4 in the UK...
It's official: we now have the release dates for the two big console releases due this year. It's been known for some time that Sony was releasing its PlayStation 4 machine on November 29th in the UK. But Microsoft had been playing its cards much closer to its chest, and only today has it revealed when we can buy the Xbox One.
The machine is on sale a week before the PS4 in the UK, having been confirmed for a November 22nd release. It's out on the same day in the US too, although the PS4 launches on November 15th in the States. It arrives eight years after the release of the Xbox 360.
Furthermore, Microsoft has increased the allocation of Day One editions of its console, which will come with a free digital copy of FIFA 14.
Let battle commence, then...
