Xbox's marketing vice-president, Yusuf Mehdi, announced the firm's rollout plans in a statement.
"The culmination of many years of listening to you, our fans, developing innovative technology, and partnering with the best game and entertainment partners in the industry has brought us to this point," he said.
"There is still a lot more work to do, but the teams are making excellent progress and are focused on launch."
He confirmed that the console recently entered full production in preparation for the launch. Pre-orders had sold out faster than any of the company's previous gaming products, Mr Mehdi said.
So in full prodction and still a lot more work to do
Who's going to be a brave early adoptor ?
