After a morning filled with speculation and buzz, we finally know when we’re getting Microsoft’s next-generation video game console. The Xbox One is scheduled to hit store shelves on November 22, with a previously announced price of $500.
Previous rumors ran the gamut, pegging the date as early as November 8, though the smart money as pointing to a late November release. The pre-release saga of the Xbox One has been one hell of a roller-coaster ride, with policy reversals and changes that seemingly came every week. But, with a retail timeframe firmly set, the battle for bragging rights moves to the place that matters most: storefronts.
