Microsoft Japan announced today with a press release that the launch of the Xbox One Elite Bundle in Japan will be delayed by a couple weeks. It was previously scheduled for November 6th, and the new release date is now November 19th.

The price is going to remain the same, set at 49,980 yen plus taxes (about $419). The bundle includes an Xbox One console with a one terabyte hybrid SSHD drive, and an Elite controller.

A second press release also announced that the new Xbox One experience, alongside with backwards compatibility, will launch in Japan by the end of the year. It was not specified whether the Japanese launch will happen at the same time as the rest of the world, since we still don’t have a firm release date for any country.
