The Xbox One Will Not Launch On November 8 After All

Yesterday, we heard from a source at a marketing company who had seen documentation pencilling the Xbox One in for a tentative, unconfirmed November 8 launch. Today, a source close to Microsoft tells us that's not the case.

The story is too old to be commented.

i think we may get the date at PAX ... fingers crossed for 15th lol

ZBlacktt1451d ago

I'll be there this weekend. MS hometown, so pretty sure they should announce it.

cl19831451d ago

It's also would be Microsoft first big announcement ever at Pax prime.

guitarded771451d ago

Hope so... I REALLY want the PS4 and XBOX One to release on the same day. It would be the most epic console launch day ever. Fanboy's heads would explode, and the media hype would be huge for both Sony and MS, and ultimately boost sales of both.

JhawkFootball061451d ago

A rumor that is discrediting a rumor.

Oh the irony.

4Sh0w1451d ago

We know its November, a week or two before or after isn't going to matter except for fanboy talk, those who really want a X1 or ps4 aren't going to change their minds based on a couple of weeks and the sales for the 1st few months will depend more on stock than which launched first.

No offense creat,But at 6 2 and 300 lbs you are extremely obese.And would have trouble doing anything to anyone without having a heart attack.Please lose some weight and live long and prosper.

fossilfern1451d ago

I hope they do I need to know what weekend to take off work!

Cueil1451d ago

remember, remember, the fifth of November

dragon821450d ago (Edited 1450d ago )

He could be 6'2" 300 lbs and still be in decent shape.

Just saying. LOL

UltimateMaster1450d ago

1 week is pretty irrelevant.
If they want to surprise everyone, launch it in September.

madpuppy1450d ago

hanging out at night waiting for 12:00 is actually kinda' neat. You are hanging out with a bunch of like minded people BSing about games and stuff. That is what i did for the 360 on launch and it was just me and a bunch of 35+ year old guys, some with their wives, hanging out till gamestop opened at 12:00 sharp.

Not impossible but i would be surprised if the console released before PS4 at this point. There simply isn't enough evidence to support a release before PS4. Sony so far has seemed slightly in front of Microsoft in terms of getting their console ready for release.
-XBox one games are still being demo'd on high end pc's as opposed to the actual console.
-still no fcc filing
-minimization of release territories in Europe

The big one here is games still not being demoed on the actual hardware. All of this points to MS not being entirely ready to release the console. However i am not an insider, don't claim to be and don't know anything happening internally at MS or sony. But from my common man outsiders perspective it would seem MS would have to REALLY push hard to release ahead of PS4.There are still three months before release which can be plenty of time really so certainly not impossible. I just don't see it as likely. But who knows maybe MS will be like apple and announce release date a few weeks before release.

badkolo1451d ago

what are you talking about, like seriously, the games were played on the x12 many of them, or does the drug you taking make you spew out nonsence

matrixman921451d ago

im pretty sure people would actually be killed

YungDragon1451d ago

The most logical date for Microsoft in my opinion, would be November 5th. It's the Same day as CoD: Ghost, and given the exclusive deals with Activision for CoD, that would guarantee units move off shelves. so I'm calling it now, November 5th release date

BatRastered1451d ago

I can't believe people disagree with this... I'm 90% sure you're right. Nov 5 is the date I've been saying since I saw the CoD release date.

etownone1450d ago

Yep. I agree with you.

Xbox One November 5 but with Cod included.

AngelicIceDiamond1451d ago

That's fine, sometime in November I'm sure.

KwietStorm1451d ago

I wonder who's gonna take the blame for fanboy bloodshed at malls across America.

showtimefolks1451d ago

can we have 2 consoles launch the same day?

shysun1451d ago

No way in hell they'll launch on the 15! PS fans and xbox fanS crammed-in gamestop....NOT A PRETTY SIGHT!

streetbred87061451d ago

I was looking to pre order the Xbox One on Best Buy's website a week ago but decided to wait a little longer. I did however add the item to the shopping cart and selected Store Pickup and they had 11/30/2013 as the Pickup Date. Here is a link that shows the date.

streetbred87061451d ago

Could it be 11/30/2013? I don't know but I wanted to let everybody know what I found. :)

Gran Touring1451d ago

11/30 is just a placeholder.

ForgottenProphecy1451d ago

I hope it's anyday but the 15th. I don't need more people in line at midnight.

logan_izer101451d ago

I hope it's any day BUT the 15th. I don't want the lineup doubling to pick up my ps4 and games.

GraveLord1451d ago

If its not launching on November 8th, its not coming on the 15th either. That's PS4 launch and would be too chaotic for retail to handle. So that leaves either the 22nd or the 29th. I think 22nd is the safest best.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1450d ago

"The Xbox One Will Not Launch"

fixed

assdan1450d ago

I highly doubt they'd launch on the same day. It'll probably be the tuesday before or after, or the friday after the PS4 launch.

lilbrat231450d ago

Im sticking with Nov 22nd or the 29th.

BitbyDeath1450d ago

29th is when PS4 launches in Europe, doubt it will be then

Withdreday1450d ago

They might as well hold it off until June of 2014. This console war is over
