Microsoft’s next generation console, the Xbox One, launches on Friday the 22nd November in 13 launch countries around the world – a week after the PlayStation 4‘s stellar US launch and a week before Sony’s international launch.

To help prepare gamers to “jump ahead” when the Xbox One is released, Microsoft have begun airing a series of ‘countdown’ advertisements for its new console.

There are three promotional spots, each of which focusses on one of the Xbox One’s three primary AAA launch titles, namely Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome.
