Xbox One is launching on Nov. 22, Microsoft announced today.

The console will be available on that date in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, the U.K. and the U.S., and will release in other markets in 2014.

The new system releases in North America for $499, £429 in the U.K. and in Europe for €499. The launch date also confirms the release date for the console's 23 launch titles, which include Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Need for Speed Rivals. You can see a full list of all launch titles right here.

The console will still, however, be delayed in eight countries across Europe, as was previously announced by Microsoft. Microsoft director of marketing Albert Penello stated last month the delay of Xbox One in eight markets is the result of implementing voice support for a number of languages into the dashboard.

Sony's PlayStation 4 console will launch Nov. 15 in North America and Nov. 29 in Europe, comparatively. At E3 2013, Sony announced that the PS4 will cost $399 in the U.S., £349 in the U.K. and €399 in Europe.
