Hilarious Highlights of Xbox One Event | Video

Microsoft have just confirmed that the Xbox One will be launching on the 22nd of November in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and USA.

That's a week after the PS4 launches in the US and a week before the PS4 launches in the UK and EU.

The date was confirmed via Major Nelson's blog.

The price of the console has stayed the same at £429 ($499) but there has actually been an increase in the power that the CPU delivers - going up from 1.6Ghz to 1.7Ghz.

With both the Xbox One and PS4 launching around the same time and in time for Christmas the next gen consoles wars will pretty much have an equal footing.
