Xbox One will release in thirteen territories - including the US and the UK - on November 22, Microsoft has announced.

The date means that Xbox One will launch before PlayStation 4 in the UK, but one week after PS4's launch in North America.

"We are humbled and gratified by the tremendous interest in Xbox One from game fans everywhere," said Yusuf Mehdi, CVP of Marketing, Strategy and Business for Xbox. "We sold out of our pre-order supply 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."

Earlier today, Microsoft announced that it had boosted the Xbox One's CPU performance by almost 10 per cent, increasing the clock speed from 1.6GHz to 1.75GHz.

It also revealed that it would continue to support Xbox 360 until 2016.

Xbox One Day One Edition is still available to order at many retailers.

2 launches in 2 weeks. GAME employees are going to be a big knackered by the end of November.

I went once, last year, and it wasn't terrible. I'm still alive anyway. But never again. Some people were downright nasty though, trying to get the stuff they "need". A woman who was twice as big as me (okay so I'm small, but geez...) shoved me and my equally small cousin out of line for the video game cabinet so she could get her stuff, but at least I don't work at walmart. I can't imagine being an employee of that store during Black Friday.

People trample one another at Walmart trying to get anything on Black Friday, I'd go dressed in a duvet and a crash helmet.

The week before Thanksgiving Day here in Americaland.
The day after Thanksgiving, and actually now the evening of (walmart opens at 9 p.m. on this holiday now) is the big shopping day for people.
People are probably going to trample one another at walmart trying to get this thing.
