British Tabloid Lists Both PS4 and Xbox One Release Date on November the 21st

Officially, the Xbox One has a November release window, while the PS4 will drop on the shelves in the “holidays”. The British tabloid The Sun seems to have a more precise idea, as it went on print with a comparison table pegging the release date for both consoles on November the 21st. (PS4, Xbox One)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 15

if they both launch on the same day i think it will be a crushing defeat for MS
Abriael  +   556d ago
Whether it'll be a crushing defeat or not, it's an almost unprecedented situation. It'll be interesting to watch to say the least.

Better stock up on pop corn.

Xbox has really no chance this time they're skipping way too many countries at launch.
PS4 will roll over them during that release period and I have a feeling that with that price and DRM drama their situation isn't getting any better anytime soon. It could actually sell way less than three first gen Xbox

Greatness awaits

Hell yeah... same day launch would be amazing. I just want to see all the fanboys talking crap in person while picking up their consoles. I don't care about that stuff personally, but it's oh so fun to watch. It'll be like the Jerry Springer Show at GameStop.

Same day wont work for Microsoft. Xbox buyers will be to embarrassed to get one with all the Playstation buyers there.
nirwanda  +   556d ago
I know people that are buying both, be honest if your into fighting games killer instinct looks good and the ps4 doesn't have a fighting game yet.
Also at the mo forza is the only racing sim due out for launch.
Foliage  +   556d ago
If you consider Forza to be a sim; Driveclub is also a sim in that case. It's shipping free with the PS4.

Killer Instinct isn't a system siller; it's an unrefined spam fest; aimed towards a casual experience. The brand does not have a whole lot of weight to it; as they have a horrible developer on it (not even the remnants of what is left of Rare).

PS4 by a good 95% margin.

Although the ill informed and those not wanting to leave emptyhanded with no PS4; along with the flat out "xbox can do no wrong" crowd will still buy it.

Getting the Xbox out before the PS4 could be the only advantage they have left right now going into this next generation as PS4 has all the momentum. Xbox may be more value for money in terms of what you get (maybe not in terms of graphics) but getting xbox fans to believe it is a hard sell especially those who don't want Kinect.

I wouldn't call a glorified webcam shoved down your throat "value".
turgore  +   556d ago
If ps4 launches first than it is even worse for them.
Arai  +   556d ago
Whatever the case it should make for a great holiday.
Hopefully the generation after next won't last as long as the current.

Interesting. But this same British tabloid gives financial/political opinions from a speech bubble coming from a topless glamour model..

Solid source.
Abriael  +   556d ago
Which is why it's a rumor.
nirwanda  +   556d ago
When a topless modle in the sun speaks she has my attention, definitely a solid source.
M83_  +   556d ago
^ Well I think it's safe to assume there's something solid on your end anyway.. >_>

Yeah they won't launch then. It will be earlier because COD comes out earlier. I don't see them delaying the next gen versions.
turnerdc  +   556d ago
Already have my One preordered. Will definitely get a PS4, not sure if on launch though. Waiting on the complete launch line up.
Abriael  +   556d ago
Wow, they exist! :P
turnerdc  +   556d ago
Yeah, I play games not consoles. Xbox One has a pretty compelling launch line up. If Infamous was a launch title my PS4 would have already been preordered.
Saksoy  +   556d ago
Defo not forgetting the popcorn. hahaha
deanobi  +   556d ago
Xbox one is preordered :P
ANIALATOR136  +   556d ago
blah, papers never know what they are talking about. I'm guessing november 28th
Abriael  +   556d ago
why the 28th? out of curiosity.
ANIALATOR136  +   556d ago
Dunno. Just seems to click when I think of that date
Interface23  +   556d ago
It'll be before Black Friday in NA at least
TheUndertaker85  +   556d ago
It'll probably be sooner. Would make more sense to launch it around the time ACIV comes out, October 29th. Many other titles come out around the same time giving the PS4 a nice launch selection on top of more to come very, very soon after.

Either way don't see both consoles launching on the same day.

BuffMordecai  +   556d ago
I'm expecting news of fights breaking out on launch day if they release simultaneously.
Livecustoms  +   556d ago
Shits gonna go down = Xbox is the shit lol
theWB27  +   556d ago
Ps4 will crush the XboxOne in the same territories where American products have never sold. That's a given and it's most likely why Microsoft isn't in that much of a worry to support that region. 2 consoles in..I think they know how it'll end.

It will be alot closer here in the states than Sony loyalists would care to believe.
GrilledCheeseBook  +   556d ago
Someones going to get stabbed. If I remember somewhere here in the USA, there was a shooting at one of the launch lines. Shit would go down if they are launched on the same day at the same stores.
sourav93  +   556d ago
It's the Sun. It's only good for Page 3 :P
DarkBlood  +   555d ago
dont you mean the back of the paper? lol
Tei777  +   556d ago
The Sun is not a reliable source for anything.
from the beach  +   556d ago
Preach.
DarkBlood  +   556d ago
im not sure i want in the same line with someone getting a xbox one, better be seperate lines instead :P
rainslacker  +   555d ago
Get in the Xbox line...it'll be shorter so you can get your PS4 quicker.

Sorry, my troll for the day.:)
CaptainCamper  +   555d ago
For those not in the UK. The Sun newspaper is renowned for being full of drivel and shit. Don't give this any serious credit :D
