It also got a CPU boost and more pre-orders available

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 GPU bump 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 here 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."

Google is at least as entwined with the NSA as MS is, and Google spies on their users more than anyone except for maybe Facebook.
