Microsoft have just confirmed that the Xbox One will launch on November 22nd. The news came from the blog of Xbox spokesman Larry Hryb. This launch sets the console’s release in between the US and European launches of the PS4.

The Playstation 4 launches on 15th November in the United States, and 29th November in Europe. The Xbox One launches on November 22nd, smack bang in the middle of the two PS4 release dates. This means it will be available after the PS4 in the US, but in Europe, the Xbox One will arrive first.
