Unfortunately for Sony, the Xbox One is beating their launch date in the UK with the 22nd of November in all territories, but Sony beat the US manufacturer with a 15th of November launch for the PS4 in the US, but a UK launch of the 29th, a region which has traditionally favoured the Playstation over the Xbox.
