Xbox One release date announced

Xbox One

Microsoft has announced that the Xbox One will be releasing on November 22 in North America and the UK, as well as 11 other territories: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand and Spain. 

Microsoft announced the release date, not in grand fashion, but on Xbox Wire in a post by Yusuf Mehdi. 

In addition to the release date announcement, Mehdi said that a limited number of additional Xbox One Day One consoles have been made available for pre-order. You can reserve yours now at Xbox.com. Finally, the development team has increased the CPU from 1.6GHZ to 1.75 GHZ, almost a 10 percent increase in power and performance. 

It's worth noting that 11/22 is the same date that the Xbox 360 released in 2005.
