Does the Limited Edition Call of Duty: Ghosts Bundle Hint at the Xbox One Console Launch?

EB Games have just announced that they’re suping up their standard editions of Call of Duty: Ghosts, with a mission to bring Australian gamers a Limited Edition pack, without a higher price tag. Not only is this bundle of extras a bonus for Aussie gamers, it also may contain within it a hint about the release date for the Xbox One console. (Call of Duty: Ghosts, EB Games, Xbox One)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 17

It's already been confirmed that the release date will be later than the 8th

So far I've only seen one article with 'a source' saying it will be later than the rumoured date, but that's not confirmation in and of itself. Is there an official Microsoft announcement I've missed? :/

Actually Microsoft released a list of launch day games including Watch Dogs which won't be released any earlier than November 19.

Or was that a list for Europe?

Not really, the Kotaku sourse doesn't have an actual source just the writer stating that he heard it from someone within MS saying it. Could be true or could be false. Nobody really knows at this point.

So they actually beleived a kotaku article?? Wowww

Maybe I am crazy...but why did Sony announce at gamescom? Why didn't they steal the 5th from Microsoft if they were gonna do it. Many ppl play CoD on the playstation and many r not gonna want to wait to play it. Sony was smart with their upgrade program but it will still cost ppl more than $60-70 and for a 10 days.

Microsoft would b insane not to launch on the 5th with CoD. Sony gav them this present. Take it!!

Because 7 or even 10 days arent gonna sway any purchases. If MS could get out late OCT then maybe. But most people will be content to wait the week or so, and thats even if this date is true.

They are all rumor, and different dates for different regions aren't unknown and hence different reports.

You can typically expect US to get earliest release so I can't wait!

My bad it hasn't been confirmed by Microsoft guys i shouldn't have put that. a source close to someone at kotaku has stated it

Yeah, Sony is releasing the PS4 IN THE MIDDLE OF NOVEMBER!! Even if its a week earlier, MS can definitely get a slight boost from that.

I'm gonna predict a Nov 15 launch for both PS4 and Xbone in the US. Just seems fun, wouldn't it? The first time competing consoles released at the same exact time.
No_Limit  +   615d ago
I don't think both releasing on the same day is a good idea. What if Greenpowerz is standing in line with Bluepowerz next to him? O_o. It is going to be ugly.

PS4 and Xbone fanboys fighting each other on Nov 15 at GameStop... I don't know if that sounds cool or stupid, but I'd watch that o_o


"My console has 8 GB GDDR5 ram!" "Yeah, but almost half of it is used on OS!" "But we get PS+ Plus!" "We get 1 Billion Transistors and Teh Cloudz!"

The Wii U and PC fans just watching in the background.
Rimeskeem  +   615d ago
imo a week or two difference between console launches isnt that much so i wont care
Nik_P757  +   615d ago
It will be a week before or a week after the PS4. Either way a week head start will have 0 impact on either console. Whether it's PS4 or X1 for you'll be enjoying it in November.
SpitFireAce85  +   615d ago
Smart man people pre-ordered the consoles of
their choice.So no impact what so ever its not like
the 1 year headstart the 360 had over the PS3.
falviousuk  +   615d ago
Sony are releasing on TWO DATES.

15th for the USA, 29th for Europe and other places I beleive. I doubt MS and retailers want the xbox to launch on the same dates, retailers would prefer a different date to that of the PS4. And im guessing so would MS.

So im going to go with the 5th of Nov alongside COD.
