Microsoft announced today that their next-gen console will be released on November 22nd. The system, which it seems is unable to be pre-ordered anywhere anymore, retails for $500. This launch includes the initial launch markets of Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and USA. More markets will follow in 2014.
The Xbox 360 was released in the USA and Canada back in 2005, also on November 22nd. With day one exclusives like Dead Rising 3, a new Killer Instinct, and Ryse: Son of Rome, Microsofts latest system is looking very promising now that many DRM concerns that fans were against have been removed. The console does still come with Kinect but it seems the add on is no longer required.
It’s been a rough couple months for Xbox, but they have listened to their fans and most importantly have shown some very promising titles on the way.
