It's official: the
Xbox One console
will be released November 22, 2013, right in time for the holiday shopping season.
Microsoft announced that the gaming console will be available
in 13 markets
as of that date, including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and USA. It will make its way to other markets in 2014.
Microsoft made a few Xbox One announcements today, aside from just the release date. It also noted that it began full production of the Xbox One console recently in preparation for the holiday season.
In addition, the Xbox One got yet another CPU boost from 1.6GHZ to 1.75GHZ, which is about a 10 percent increase in CPU performance. This is on top of the 6 percent increase the console received recently.
Earlier this month, Microsoft gave the Xbox One a
as well. The Xbox One's GPU clock speed is now 853MHz, up from the previous 800MHz.
Furthermore, Microsoft announced today that it will making a limited number of additional Xbox One Day One consoles available for pre-order. You can reserve the Day One edition
as well as at certain retailers like Best Buy and Amazon. But again, quantities are limited.
"We are humbled and gratified by the tremendous interest in Xbox One from game fans everywhere," said Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing, Strategy and Business, Xbox. "We have sold out of our pre-order supply in the U.S. faster than at any other time in our history and we are on path to have the biggest launch of an Xbox ever. We look forward to celebrating with millions and millions of gamers this holiday."

RE: Xbox One Boosts CPU Performance At Last Minute Beating PS4

I'd bet my salary that Sony had the same idea and backed off before announcement due to the bad press from the Microsoft launch. It's no secret that Sony planned on pushing the DRM restriction on 3rd parties well before the Xbox reveal. With the current status of steam and other online storefronts/DRM it's not impossible to see how it would be a first choice idea.
