Microsoft sets Nov 22 date for Xbox One launch
SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Microsoft's new Xbox One console will go on sale Nov 22 in 13 launch countries, the US tech giant said on Wednesday.
The company had previously said the entertainment and gaming console would be available sometime in November.
In June, Microsoft said the launch would be in 21 countries, but last month cut that back to 13, saying the plan had been too ambitious.
"We are humbled and gratified by the tremendous interest in Xbox One from game fans everywhere," said Microsoft vice-president Yusuf Mehdi in a blog post.
