Xbox One Release Date Announced

Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

[adsense250itp]Microsoft announced the Xbox One release date is Nov. 22 in a post made by Xbox Corporate Vice President of Marketing, Strategy and Business Yusuf Mehdi on Xbox.com.

The next-gen console will release in 13 markets the same day, including the U.S. Other countries in which Xbox One is expected to launch Nov. 22 include Canada, Australia, Austria, Brazil, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Mexico, Spain, New Zealand and the U.K. The console is expected to release in additional markets in 2014.

Microsoft announced Xbox One will be priced at $499.99 at E3 in June. The console will come boxed with the new Kinect sensor, chat headset, one controller, an HDMI cable, power supply and guide. Gamers who pre-ordered the Xbox One Day One Edition will get a special edition Day One controller featuring a chrome D-pad and will also receive an achievement.

Gamers in Europe will receive a bonus incentive to purchase an Xbox One early. All Xbox Day One Edition pre-orders in Europe will come with a free copy of FIFA 14.

The release date comes one week after the PlayStation 4 release date. Sony used its Gamescom press conference to announce its next-gen console will launch on Nov. 15. However, the console will release one week later than Xbox One in Europe.

Microsoft has gone a long road with its next-gen “all in one entertainment system.” The company announced Xbox One at a press event on its Washington campus in May. Microsoft dropped the console’s always-online and digital rights management policies in June after experiencing negative feedback from the gaming community. Microsoft executive and the man who served as the face of the Xbox brand, Don Mattrick, left the company for a position with Zynga. The company also reversed course by allowing all developers to self-publish their games and announcing all Xbox One consoles will be available to use as a dev-kit.
