Official Xbox Site Hints At Xbox One Release Date

Well would you take a look at this - the official Xbox site appears to think the Xbox One version of Call of Duty: Ghosts will release on 5th November. The game has been confirmed as an Xbox One launch title. Has Microsoft prematurely revealed the date that its next gen console goes on sale? (Industry, Xbox One)

Hmm..That does seems a bit legit. we will see.
iamnsuperman  +   360d ago
I don't think it does. That is the date when the rest of the COD versions (360, PS3...) are releasing. I think it is just that. It will change when the release date is officially announced.

I may be wrong but I thought some 360 games that were going to be on the One were releasing before the One's launch

This pretty much confirms the date imo, MS won't come out after COD Ghosts release date, and the box art and the fact it's on Xbox website suggests it's legit. I personally expected 12 November, because then it would be 11.12.13 in the US.
blitz0623  +   360d ago
The thing is, most people who only play CoD or BF4 will likely stick with current gen. Still, launching the X1 at the same time as Ghosts is a good idea to grab some attention and convince people to move to next gen. Some of these people don't want to wait a whole week or even worse, 2 weeks to just get CoD on a next gen console if they can already play it on their 360s/PS3s - with their friends I might add

same stuff happened when 360 an ps3 launch and I would expect that to happen a lot at the next gen releases.
malokevi  +   359d ago
Early November would be great. I've been saying the 21st, because that's when XBL debut, that's when the first and second Xbox's came out, that's when Halo 3 came out... pretty much every major Xbox release has gravitated towards the 21st.

If it comes sooner... that would be awesome. Prevent me from going insane, at least. That would mean 3 months... *gargle - swoon*

You're right. I've seen an October 29th release date for BF4 on PS4 at the amazon website. I think that's a release date for all the current gen systems.

@Django_x7 ....plenty of people do sorry to disappoint you.

as for the release date of COD being the release of Xbox One... doubt it. PS4 version has the same date on Amazon. more than likely the game will come out prior to the console by up to a week or maybe 2. so it will be a launch game just out before.

3-4 week in November, would be my guess.

What a date to choose, the date when the UK celebrates the religious persecution of catholics.

cesuf  +   360d ago
So you really think theres a national holiday to celebrate persecution of catholics? Just based on that alone, your a complete moron. Then the link you added disproved your own interpretation. Wikipedia cleared said it was a freedom gained to practice Catholicism. I mean wow.

Someone has poor comprehension skills:

"Its history begins with the events of 5 November 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords. Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London, and months later the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure.

Within a few decades Gunpowder Treason Day, as it was known, became the predominant English state commemoration, but as it carried strong religious overtones it also became a focus for anti-Catholic sentiment. Puritans delivered sermons regarding the perceived dangers of popery, while during increasingly raucous celebrations common folk burnt effigies of popular hate-figures, such as the pope."

You know shortly before the pilgrims left England for the Americas because they were escaping religious persecution?

I mean wow. Please never breed, ever. There's already a surplus of stupid.

I realize that you not very fond of MS, to put it gently, judging from your comment history, but pulling up a 400year old event, that more or less lost it's meaning halfway thru the 19th century.....im just scratching my head
fossilfern  +   359d ago
I dont think the whole UK celebrate I think it's just England, we don't celebrate it in Northern Ireland (I think )
ArronC07  +   359d ago

Judging from your comment history you have a clear bias towards MS and therefore you probably perceive any negative comment toward them as a personal attack.

You do know that a multi-billion dollar corporation doesn't need you to defend it on an internet news site right? They only care about making money off you, they don't actually care about you as a gamer. Frankly they've deserved the crap that they got over the last couple of years, starting with the RRoD up to the XB ONE they've shown utter contempt for the consumer.

They are literally the new Sony.

I can guarantee that you'll fixate in the "MS bias" and miss the implied critique of Sony.

Also the fact that I am using a 17th century event to 'have a go' at MS kind of implies that I'm not being strictly serious but don't let that get in the way of your crusade to defend multi-billion dollar MS.

The Master Plan for Sony & Microsoft, is to release not on Black Friday, but before Black Friday.

It essentially gives you 3-4 weeks of sales before the big one.

It's a smarter business decision and I suspect Sony will do something similar.

You can sell 1 million systems on Black Friday, or you can sell 3 million by selling them before black friday and the day after, November 3oth, you will have more consoles on the market.

More consoles on the Market = more game sales

More games sales = more 3rd party support
Khajiit86  +   360d ago
The only way xbox one could do some damage in sales compared to the ps4 is if its released at least a month before ps4 release.

5th of november for xbox and really early in 2014 for ps4 would workout great for me. I could buy both with no problems. Even though I would prefer ps4 first.

joefrost00  +   359d ago
Im going to say something a lot of sony fans are denial about
The only reason sony caught or even stayed in the race for that matter is japan
Sony sales well in.europe but so does MS and we.know whats been going on over here and not really how many they in japan more so the ratio
I tell my friend all the time the reason ps3 exclusives dont sell like they should is because that most of them are geared to a western audience
I keep hearing sony fans say even with all the problems we still won
Actually you all lost big time not just looking at sales but also money made by a system games bought , attach ratio, ect
And ask sony a bet they dont feel like they won
Now time to finish up Last of Us
Bigpappy  +   360d ago
The U.S and U.K are going to be very difficult for Sony to take back from M$, even with the $100 difference. Xbox is just way too strong in the U.S and the ability of the X1 to appeal to toddlers and adults (male and female) is going to offset some of the price point stigma.
AceofStaves  +   360d ago
I don't think the UK market is as tied to the XBox brand as the U.S. market is, especially given that many of the media capabilities of XB1 are limited to the U.S. I think XB1 will do well in its home market, but I think Sony has a clear edge globally.

It will be interesting to see how the sales pan out once both consoles launch.
aceitman  +   360d ago
The reason was because the 360 was priced at 299. - 399$ and the ps3 was 499-599$ that was the main reason plus the 360 had a year head start. It's time to find out soon enough head to head no head start for ms. The way the preorders are going it looks like Sony is ahead of the game.
_FantasmA_  +   359d ago
Even the US isn't that stupid. Sure lots of jarheads and obnoxious 12 year old posers who only play COD and nothing else will still think "Xbox is t3h best bro." But not all Americans, I'm sorry Muricans are stupid enough that they will allow M$ to just walk all over them, take their money and run. I am an American that supports the real gaming console that comes from Japan.

I think once Sony pulls to far ahead i think MS will use some of the vast amount of money to lower the price.
joefrost00  +   359d ago
I have no idea which console will sell more or be better
I dont think no one does
Not counting the ones who were going to by a ps4 or xbox1 no matter what
what makes this so interesting is when I listen to people its more like more people are choosing the ps4 but the funny thing is that
Its not because they think its the best system more so cause of hatred for MS
So if you got people makinf there choice out spite and anger
It adds a certain level of unpredictability

I hope Sony can release the PS4 a least a week before the bone. It would really spur momentum. October 29th sounds good to me if this release date is accurate.

GraveLord  +   360d ago
It really doesn't matter. Releasing on time for Black Friday won't help much since people are only looking for great deals and cheap stuff. PS3 + Xbox 360 will benefit from this. Xbox One + PS4 won't. In fact, it might make them look bad sitting there on the shelves while their older brothers are selling out.

Now, Christmas is a difference story. Consoles HAVE to be out before Christmas. Price is less of a factor here compared to Black Friday.

There are usually a couple games and accessories that trickle out a week or two before launch, so it could be 11/5, but I'm guessing the 12th for the built-in 11/12/13 marketing, at least in North American usage.

The 5th kinda seems early or maybe not maybe MS wants to push it out the earliest in November as possible scared of Sony release timing. However, the next-gen games will most likely be on shelves before the next-gen consoles so dont be surprised to be able to pick up the next CoD b4 either system gets released.

November 5th 2013 is the "Anonymous Declaration of Freedom" Day (youtube it!). "Remember Remember The 5th of November" is their slogan.

Xbox One (Living Room Spy) goes against some of the things this day is about. Let's see if the Xbox One's launch overshadows the million man march on washington on nov. 5th. If it does, Americans deserve to be stripped of all rights and might as well burn the constitutiin.
shadyiswin  +   359d ago
thinking way to deep bro.....not to mention 11/5/13 is activisons date not microsofts,so take your spygate sh*t elsewhere,dont buy an xb1 if it is a problem,im confident everyone will cave in and get an xb1 sooner or later when see that competion just can't compete,think ios vs android,it is now overwhelming how much one does vs the other,even the simplest of minds get it (elder people and young),simple minds being casual people will see this in the xb1 vs ps4. In american anyways most people will just simply upgrade what they have got for there kids in the past,which is an xbox 360.

Not that I care, but I think it will be closer to Thanksgiving. MS and its Spybox could come out today and I could care less. Now PS4 on the other hand, bring it on, and also Nintendo could I please have some more games for Wii U?

Nov 5th could be spot on with PS4 coming out just before on Halloween. I can sense an October release for PS4. They will pip MS once again.

But a few weeks apart won't make any difference really.
