After remaining tight-lipped in the months after its (somewhat contentious) presentation E3, Microsoft has finally revealed a release date for the Xbox One. And, as expected the console will be ready for gifting this holiday season, as it hits shelves globally in 13 countries on November 22.
Xbox marketing executive Yusuf Mehdi confirmed the date after IGN reported that a number of U.K. retailers had announced on Twitter that the console would be on shelves.
