Microsoft’s next gen console is being rolled out as we speak.
Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb addressed concerns about shortages yesterday, and it’s been reiterated several times already that the console is on track for production. Today at the Citi Global Technology Conference, Xbox chief marketing officer Yusuf Mehdi revealed that the Xbox One is currently in full production mode. So no more changes beyond this point.
Mehdi noted that the console’s CPU had been increased, this time from 1.6 GHz to 1.75 GHz. This marks the second boost in console CPU speed since the Xbox One was first introduced. Conversely, Sony hasn’t yet revealed what clock speeds the PlayStation 4 is running at.
Oddly enough, despite being in production, the Xbox One still doesn’t have a final release date. Rumours have indicated that it will be out in late November but other rumours have pointed towards a release on November 8th – one week before the PlayStation 4’s official release in the United States. More details as they arrive.
