Ladies and gents, you can now prepare your camping gear and get ready to line up for the Xbox One. The next-gen entertainment system will launch on November 22 (a week after the PlayStation 4) in the U.S. and in 12 additional regions, including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, and the U.K.

Microsoft originally planned to have the Xbox One launch in 21 countries, but was forced to cut eight countries out. The countries that'll have to wait until 2014 are Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden and Switzerland.

The Xbox One is Microsoft's third Xbox console and will be the first one to include a Kinect sensor (although, it's wont' be mandatory for the console to function). Microsoft also made over 40 improvements to the Xbox One controller.

Every Xbox One has a Blu-ray drive, non-removable 500GB hard drive, 1.7GHz eight-core processor, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi, HDMI In/Out and three USB 3.0 ports. Additionally, the Xbox One will leverage the power of cloud computing to further bolster the console's physical specs.

The Xbox One will cost $499 and games will sell for $60. For more info on the Xbox One, you can check out our hands-on preview with it and the controller from E3.

So which console are you choosing this November? PS4 or Xbox One?
