    Gameplay: Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

    The Xbox One was given a bit of a performance boost before going into full production, according to Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of marketing and strategy for Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business. The next-gen console's CPU is now running at 1.75 GHz, an improvement from its previous 1.6 GHz clock speed.

    "We're on track for launch in November," Mehdi said. "We'll announce a launch date shortly. We recently just went into full production, so we're now producing en masse Xbox One consoles. We've had real good progress on the system. In fact, we just updated the CPU performance to 1.75 GHz on top of the graphics performance improvement, so the system is really going to shine [and] the games look pretty incredible."

    The performance boost follows a similar clock speed increase announced in August. Xbox chief product officer Marc Whitten said on a podcast that the Xbox One's GPU now runs at 853 MHz, up from 800 MHz.

    Unfortunately, sad news arose when we pleaded with Penello to have the impressive IllumiRoom greenlit for consumers for Xbox One, he explained that consumer cost was just too big a barrier.

    "I wouldn't expect you'll see that," Penello said. "It's very, very cool tech but it's, like, for a consumer, it requires projectors and things. It's really super-neat if you're in the lab and you've got Microsoft money and you could totally set up this awesome lab, but... we looked at it, but for an average customer it's, like, thousands of dollars [for the set up]."
