XBox Gets A Date.
The XBox 360 has been given a launch date, or dates rather. Microsoft spilled the beans at the Tokyo Game Show. Folks in North America will see the fancy new box on November 22. Europeans will get their hands on the new hardware on December 2nd and December 10th is the day of reckoning in Japan. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs had a thumb wrestling match to kick off the announcement in which one of them was heard to say:
" This holiday season, gamers in Japan, Europe and North America pining to experience jaw-dropping high-definition graphics, unmatched online play and compelling digital entertainment features of Xbox 360 will finally have the chance," said Robbie Bach, chief Xbox officer for Microsoft. "Renowned development studios around the world are busy putting the finishing touches on their Xbox 360 games. We expect a strong portfolio of titles on launch day and through the holidays that will appeal to fans of every genre and gamers in every region, and with more than 200 games currently in development, continuous new additions to the library are on the way.
