Xbox One Available from November 8

Unlike Sony, which spelled out exactly what it plans to do when, with its next-generation PlayStation 4 launch, Microsoft didn't, other than listing out the handful few countries that will get the console, and the 23 games it will launch with. There finally seems to be some clarity on when Xbox One will be first available, and that's November 8, 2013.

November 8th is fixed as the launch-date of Xbox One, when the console will officially launch in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom, and United States; Day One Edition variants of the console will be delivered, and buyers will be able to purchase the console from ground stores. It's also when Microsoft will reward its employees with a special "I made this" edition.
