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?

The story is too old to be commented.
golding891686d ago

Hmm..That does seems a bit legit. we will see.

iamnsuperman1686d ago (Edited 1686d 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

gaffyh1686d ago

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.

blitz06231686d ago (Edited 1686d 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

starchild1686d ago

Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The Gunpowder treason and plot;
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot!

tokugawa1686d ago

i thought that it would be obvious that it woulg launch with cod

evilhasitsway1686d ago

same stuff happened when 360 an ps3 launch and I would expect that to happen a lot at the next gen releases.

malokevi1685d ago (Edited 1685d 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*

jjb19811685d ago

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.

X1 is getting a lot of attention from Battlefield and COD. But it is still left to be seen what the X1 release date will be.

alejandroelputo1686d ago

who actually cares about the xbox one?

Dlacy13g1686d ago

@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.

avengers19781686d ago

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

Khajiit861686d ago (Edited 1686d ago )

I wish. Right around my bday. Got the 360 when it launched a day before my birthday.

CRAIG6671686d ago

Seems legit, Microsoft will be EXTREMELY eager to launch next gen hardware along side this game, it doesn't take a genius to work that out...

ArronC071686d ago

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

cesuf1686d ago (Edited 1686d 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.

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

ArronC071686d ago (Edited 1686d ago )


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.

MajorLazer1686d ago

Please spare the religious crap

aLucidMind1686d ago (Edited 1686d ago )

If I recall, it was the pagans bring persecuted and not the catholics. Or is my memory of that era a bit rusty?

Nevermind, posted before I read your link.

ArronC071686d ago (Edited 1686d ago )

I do love the fact that people are 'disagreeing' with established fact, absolutely priceless.

The world is doomed. Keep it coming guys, you're all the bestest.

andibandit1686d ago


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 just scratching my head

fossilfern1686d ago

I dont think the whole UK celebrate I think it's just England, we don't celebrate it in Northern Ireland (I think )

ArronC071686d ago (Edited 1686d 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.

MrFanboy1685d ago

I love when people write this "your a complete moron". It's "YOU'RE a complete moron" you moron.

This can be released before the system comes out it has been done before . Wii u and vita and ps3 games came out 2-3 weeks before the systems came out.

Jazz41081685d ago

I purchased and had inhand several 360 games before the console released.

Gekko361686d ago

Cool, if it's the 5th November then it's on my birthday, happy birthday to me.

@gaffyh however it'd only be the 12th to get 11/12/13 in the us.

The rest of the world would be the 11th Dec, 11/12/13.

I've never understood US bullshit date system. It's even worse on film averts

"RED2 coming August two" what the fuck is that all about!!

mcstorm1686d ago

I wish it was tomorrow cant wait to get my Xbox one but if they are bringing the release date closer im up for that.

3-4-51685d ago

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

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.

Maddens Raiders1686d ago

"The only way xbox one could do some damage in sales compared to the ps4 is if it was released in 2012."

I think this is what you meant to type. :)

Khajiit861686d ago

Worldwide PS4 would still catch up in sales. Sony is just a whole lot more popular around the world.

And yes sales outside of America MATTER! a whole lot.

YodaCracker1686d ago

Never underestimate the competition.

joefrost001686d 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

Bigpappy1686d 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.

AceofStaves1686d 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.

aceitman1686d 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_1686d 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.

ForgottenProphecy1686d ago

Ps4 is already confirmed for 2013 though...

GraveLord1686d ago

A month isn't enough. Besides, PS4 is already confirmed for this year and its $100 cheaper. Who's doing damage to who?

andibandit1686d ago

I think once Sony pulls to far ahead i think MS will use some of the vast amount of money to lower the price.

joefrost001686d 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.

YNWA961686d ago

Oh I hope so too.... I have not slept for weeks worrying about this! The thought of X1 getting a headstart really gives me nightmares! We should do what guy forkes did, true british patriot and maybe burn any store selling X1.... Great british empire! We are still relevant!

jocomat91686d ago

never go full retard people. . .

YNWA961686d ago

Nah do not worry, I am fine... Trying to finish everything in GTA4 before 5!, I care nothing for the above, just funny watching people worry over who realeases first... Ya know, its life or death for some..... Crazy...


Lmao now that was some funny fanboy shit lol

stage881686d ago

Life or death? I'm talking about business tactics and what could spur momentum for the PS4.
Jocomat9 is right. Never go full retard.

GraveLord1686d 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.

Maddens Raiders1686d ago

So maybe this is the day that anon will shut down all of One's services because of their DRM hubris and desires?

Interesting date to say the least.

pacostacos1686d ago

the dudes that got punked by the mexican cartel? lol

Elit3Nick1686d ago

Anon likely wouldn't have attacked Xbl, even with DRM, since people would've known that's what they were buying, the reason they attacked PSN is because they removed linux support and backward compatibility after the PS3 released

andibandit1686d ago

I thought Anon attacked Sony, because Sony dragged a hacker to court

RadioActiveTwinky1686d ago

Me thinks is Fish bait to try to entice sony on announcing a release date lol. Kinda like the European store Release date of the ps4.
It does sound plausible though. Anything before Thanksgiving and black friday is plausible to be honest.
