Microsoft has confirmed the apps that will be available during Xbox One’s launch window, which is between “Nov. 22 and spring 2014.”
“We set out to make Xbox One the all-in-one games and entertainment hub for your home. The one system that offers the best games next to the best entertainment experiences and apps,” said Marc Whitten, Xbox Chief Product Officer. “Along with offering a stellar app portfolio from around the world, Xbox One takes the next step by offering them in a way that is seamless and easy to use.”
Since many of the apps are television-based, the lists for each country differ slightly. Sadly Microsoft failed to identify which apps will actually be available on November 22 and which we will have to wait for.
As well as the apps listed below, every market will have access to the following apps: Xbox Fitness, Xbox Video, Xbox Music, Internet Explorer, Skype, SkyDrive, and Upload.
