Xbox One to launch November 22

Microsoft announced today that the Xbox One will launch on Friday, November 22, for $499. This puts it just a week after the launch of the PlayStation 4. Microsoft's Yusuf Mehdi points out that this is the same launch date as Xbox 360.

The announcement left details sparse, other than a list of the 13 available launch markets, which includes the US and much of Europe. The company also announced that additional Day One units are still available for pre-order, and confirmed yesterday's CPU increase.
