Xbox One’s 8th November Release Date Is A Dud

According to a rumor we heard the other day, Microsoft’s upcoming Xbox One console was pegged for an 8th of November release, a good week ahead of Sony’s PlayStation 4. Unfortunately for those who were pretty psyched about the release date, it turns out that it might not be true after all. Microsoft has yet to come forward to deny this rumor, but apparently a source close to Microsoft has told the folks at Kotaku that the 8th of November release date is a no-go after all. Their source tells them that the console will be launched after the 8th of November, but no specific dates were mentioned.

 

The good news is that the console is still on track for a November release which is what Microsoft has been promising, although when exactly in November remains to be seen. Will Microsoft be able to beat Sony to the punch by releasing the console before the 15th of November? Or will Microsoft once again lag behind like they did with their announcement, and launch the Xbox One after Sony has launched their PlayStation 4? We guess we will have to wait and see.

I couldn't edit my original post so I created a new one.

Should include a poll for date guessing, I think we as a community could do better collectively that these "sources".

I'm kind of hoping for a 11/15 release date for the Xbox One too. That way we have maximum craziness.

Does it really make much of a difference to Microsoft considering all the day one consoles are already sold out?

Xbox 1 came out on 11/15 so it will be fitting that Xbox One comes out on 11/15 :laugh:

Some retailers held stock for the release day.  I'd be surprised if it wasn't somewhat common.

Thanks for posting this Ironman. There are more pressing matters in the universe, but within our context this last minute release date unveil thing is really annoying. Seriously, people need to prepare, it's not a minor expense. I've had it on pre-order since May, and I still don't know when to expect that $600 hammer to drop on my credit card!

Oh please, you made the choice to order one. If you don't want the "hammer to drop", cancel it.
