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. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 123

i think we may get the date at PAX ... fingers crossed for 15th lol
ZBlacktt  +   899d ago
I'll be there this weekend. MS hometown, so pretty sure they should announce it.
cl1983  +   899d ago
It's also would be Microsoft first big announcement ever at Pax prime.
guitarded77  +   899d 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.

A rumor that is discrediting a rumor.

Oh the irony.
4Sh0w  +   899d 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.

1 week is pretty irrelevant.
If they want to surprise everyone, launch it in September.
madpuppy  +   898d 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.

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
matrixman92  +   899d ago

YungDragon  +   899d 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
BatRastered  +   899d 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.
etownone  +   898d ago
Yep. I agree with you.

Xbox One November 5 but with Cod included.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   899d ago
That's fine, sometime in November I'm sure.

streetbred8706  +   899d 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.
streetbred8706  +   899d ago
Could it be 11/30/2013? I don't know but I wanted to let everybody know what I found. :)
Gran Touring  +   899d ago
11/30 is just a placeholder.

I hope it's anyday but the 15th. I don't need more people in line at midnight.
logan_izer10  +   899d ago
I hope it's any day BUT the 15th. I don't want the lineup doubling to pick up my ps4 and games.
GraveLord  +   899d 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.

assdan  +   898d 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.
lilbrat23  +   898d ago
Im sticking with Nov 22nd or the 29th.
BitbyDeath  +   898d ago
29th is when PS4 launches in Europe, doubt it will be then

So the week after the PS4? Wow, interesting call.

@mafiahajeri lol thats exactly what im talking about :P
slimeybrainboy  +   899d ago
Surely there is production problems if they dont launch first. They've got so many less countries to ship to, they still havent certified the console by FCC whatever that means?(but surely it's not a good sign, the console still doesn't seem final), the design of the box is very large, reveal was at the latest oppurtunity.

It all just seems strange to me. Perhaps not obviously but it seems like more effort has gone into Kinect than the console.
badkolo  +   899d ago
a custom built gaming machine and you have the nerve to say that, its the ps4 that was put together with spare parts not the ps4, they spent more time on kinect then sony did with the ps4 most likely as well

vigilante_man  +   899d ago
22nd would be a good date if they ship in all 13 countries at the same date. 1 week after in the us and 1 week before in Europe compared to the PS4.

The_Devil_Hunter  +   899d ago
Yeah I noticed this yesterday all games have the date November 27 and they say Day One Edition on them so this makes me believe that the Xbone will be released that day.
jaren92  +   899d ago
That would be interesting going to pick up my Xbox on November 15 seeing all the Sony boys stare me down and give me dirty looks I think it would be cool for both systems to launch on the same day but I highly doubt it will happen it would Definitely f be a sight to see it would be talked about in the future for sure

Eeek! He has an XBone!! Burn it with fire!!! *does what AMD did to NVIDIA *

Rowdius_Maximus  +   899d ago
I say November 12th if they don't have production problems. If they do probably something like the 26th. Same night would be fun though.
yellowgerbil  +   899d ago
If they don't give a date in the next 3 weeks I'm gunna assume the worst and say it getting delayed to 2014. They really need to get with the program. Gamescom was the perfect place to tell the date. They aren't even going to TGS, so isn't pax the only one left?
TheGreatGamer  +   899d ago
Microsoft can't afford to do a 180 on the release date, i fear it would be one too many
dmeador  +   899d ago
So I've got a question, if this "source" knows its not the 8th, then why wouldn't he give a date?
TheGreatGamer  +   899d ago
The author probably has a source in or close to microsoft so leaking information like that would jeopardize their relationship
Rowdius_Maximus  +   899d ago
Only knows when its not probably, they probably know it'll be towards the end of November, the 26th to be exact
Outsider-G  +   899d ago
November 22 I am guessing
stuff  +   899d ago
There's no way retailers would stand for the nightmare that would be a simultaneous release of those two systems.
Rowdius_Maximus  +   899d ago
Hope they will, I'd get shirts made up showing the pros of the PS4. There'll be a lot of them
stuff  +   899d ago
Phantom disagrees*

Releasing simultaneously would create unnecessary and avoidable problems at retail. And it wouldn't do consumers any real favors. Releasing a week or two before or after (the better choice imo) wouldn't really help or hurt in any significant way as long as there are no supply issues. I'm sure it would give the people waiting in line plenty to keep from getting bored.
Ju  +   899d ago
They release on the same "day" already. Doesn't really matter if exactly the same day. No matter what's gonna happen, the stores will have shelve space reserved for both in November, advertising and all. It actually really doesn't matter.

Having worked Video Game retail for over 14 years (Most with GS but now with my own indie game store) It really isn't that big of a deal. The backrooms will be flooded the week before street date, and the lines will be long but after servicing over one thousand people for Call of Duty at midnight (Which always includes 3 versions and multiple console releases) retailers do not worry about it.
stuff  +   899d ago
The release of a multiplatform game is not the same as releasing two competing game systems at the same time. This would cause some retailers to have to be open literally all night. There will be idiots in some of those lines saying and doing idiot things and liability risk will be present for some property owners. An offset release would be better for everyone involved even if it's just one day.
chito1016d  +   899d ago
Hard to believe they could release ahead of Sony since they seem a step behind in the production process.
Stuntz  +   899d ago
so how can we actually believe this? If this so called special person told them its not the 8th wouldnt he tell them the date? IDK doesnt seem right to me i really do think it is coming the 8th.
WooHooAlex  +   899d ago
If it isn't the 8th, that doesn't give them a lot of options. 22nd would be one week after the PS4 launch, and dangerously close to Black Friday. Not a good launch date IMO.

Of course there is always the long-rumored PS4 release date, November 12th. That seems like a date Microsoft would go with to me. 11.12.13
Great marketing date and it gives them a three day head start.
Ju  +   899d ago
Good idea, actually. 1..2...3...PS4 :)
tcozzens  +   899d ago
Another clever marketing date would be 11/1/13, 11/1 was the release date of the original xbox, it also coincides with Xbox One, being 11/1 (one, one, one). On more of a stretch for that would be 11/1/13, having one-one/one/one-three as in original xbox date, the xbox one, and the final "13" being xbox one-third gen of xbox... Dun Dun Duunnn.

On a side note that is veterans day, which most have off here in US.

"Of course there is always the long-rumored PS4 release date, November 12th."

Um... it's been officially announced as the 15th.
WooHooAlex  +   899d ago
Yes, I'm aware of that. I was saying November 12th, the rumored PS4 release date (before they announced it as the 15th), could actually end up being the Xbox One launch date instead.

Was really wanting to hear that the Xbox One was going to be released on Nov. 8th... Only to have Sony to turn around and say something like "To help satisfy the needs and wants of gamers we are releasing the PlayStation 4 on Nov. 1st, because we put gamers first."

Sony staying One.Step.Beyond.

crazysammy  +   899d ago
Part of the reason for the Nov 15th release date on the PS4 comes from launch titles. If Sony had launched in October (which I REALLY wanted) they would not have had as many launch titles. Im sure Ubi, EA, and Activision were very adamant about their launch dates and wouldn't push them up for a console release. That is why I think MS will launch the same day or a week later as much as Im sure they would want to come out first.

*Edit* To clarify the publishers want to ship all the product together otherwise its a logistical nightmare and a ton of extra cost.

Ju  +   899d ago
Was obvious...otherwise they'd have announced it already. There is no reason to hold this back unless MS doesn't know exactly when they can release. Xboxers are hoping to beat Sony, but MS won't. They didn't with the first announcement and they won't release before the PS4. If they can release in Nov. considering how far behind they are that would already be a massive achievement.
Wikkid666  +   899d ago
I'm sure MS doesn't even know when they will be able to launch yet. They have to make sure they have the hardware, OS, and games ready. I think ideally they would like release the same day as COD.
