Microsoft announced this morning that the Xbox One will be released in 13 territories on November 22, 2013. Today's announcement comes exactly two weeks after Sony's announcement of the PS4's November 15 launch date.
The 13 markets that the Xbox One will be available on November 22 include: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and USA. No specific date has been set as to when the next Xbox will arrive in other territories, but Microsoft expects a date sometime in 2014.
In addition to the launch date announcement, Amazon.co.uk just listed an Xbox One Day One bundle that includes Forza 5 at no additional cost, as a digital download. There is no word as to whether any other territory will receive Forza 5 for free.
Last week, Microsoft announced the full lineup of games that will be available at launch. Click this link for the full story.
