Mehdi also noted that November 22nd is the same date that the Xbox 360 launched on back in 2005.
In addition to the launch date announcement, Yusuf confirmed that the Xbox One is officially in full production, the CPU clock speed had been boosted from 1.6GHz to 1.75GHz, and the Xbox One: Day Edition has been restocked in limited quantities across all major retailers.[youtube id=”1PSoWOVEdBc” width=”600″ height=”350″]
