Yusuf Mehdi:

Speaking of launch, we’re now in a position to share that Xbox One will be available on Nov. 22, 2013 in all 13 of our initial launch markets – Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and USA. Many more markets will follow in 2014.

Xbox One Now In Full Production With Improved CPU Performance

GeekWire:

Xbox chief marketing officer Yusef Mehdi added that Microsoft just made another technical boost by upgrading the CPU performance to 1.75 GHZ from 1.6 GHZ.

I’m confused; with all these 180s, backtracks, no release date, reduced launch countries, yeild issue rumors, and scrapped plans, Major Nelson still thinks that Microsoft is working on.. a schedule. PR BS at its best.
