Microsoft Studios’ Xbox One console has been the subject of much discussion since its reveal last month, and one of the many hot topics is the console’s intended release date. Originally stated for the forthcoming ‘holiday’ season in North America, a new advertisement has been published confirming that European gamers will benefit from a release before the close of 2013 also.
This official confirmation comes along with the launch of supermarket Asda’s pre-order campaign, offering the guarantee of an Xbox One console for a £20 GBP deposit. Along with the retailer’s announcement comes the advertisement from Microsoft seen below, clearly stating that the Xbox One will launch this year. No more specific information regarding a release date is yet available, but of course Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details.
