Xbox One passed FCC certification 'before PS4'

Xbox One passed FCC certification "earlier this summer before PS4", Microsoft's Larry Hryb has revealed, suggesting that the console had been further along in the production cycle than Sony's platform.

The story is too old to be commented.

Great to see that both consoles have passed certification.
Now, I await the holidays. :D

@mewhy. Get new data, those are estimated figures from a month ago.

Did you watch E3 cause what I saw it was games, games, games vs tv, features, Paywall. It was surprising to see Sony not talk much about games.

Sony had a much better reveal/E3 combo but in now way did they compete with MS E3 when they delivered on being all about games.

PS: I'm pretty sure MS said TV once in their entire E3 conference, which was a pleasant surprise.

really you believe the PR hype man who just yesterday was caught lying about the REAL production problems that are actually impacting the XB1.

He said yesterday on twitter that the stories about productions issues were false.

Then just hours later the manufacture of the XB1 said that the console was really having manufacturing issues.

You have to think Larry has a vested interest in putting either a positive spin on the issue or completely pretend like it doesn't exist.

With regards to this matter there is no document supporting yet another one of his false claims...it's called damage control and that is exactly what he is paid to do.

The internet kinda did it to itself. Nelson just pointed it out.

As far as I know we really only have Amazon as real proof of what preorder sales are currently like. I'm looking at the "best sellers of 2013" on Amazon so far and the preorder data still looks like this.

#4 - Playstation 4 - Launch Edition
#7 - Xbox One - Day One Edition
#29 - Playstation 4 - Standard Edition
#71 - Playstation 4 - Watch Dogs Bundle
#76 - Playstation 4 - Battlefield 4 Bundle

The Xbox One - Standard Edition hasn't even broken into the top 100 yet. It's only data for one place of course, but that's not to say it isn't the same everywhere else. This is about the best we have though, everything else is hearsay.

increasing the clock speed means it will have to go pass fcc again.

I kind of remember a news post referring to the Xbox One passing FCC cert. But I'm having a hard time finding it. Either way it's good news and I'm guessing PAX we shall get an announced release date.

christocolus1450d ago

i just love the way ms has been quietly answering gamers worries, without making a big deal out of it...im with you superlupe, they did infact make a big fool of those who were making an issue out of nothing...for crying out loud fcc approval? what does that have to do with games?and now fanboys are quick to go on the defensive...

@mewhy32 - from your comment it seems this news hurt you really bad..e3 was amazing for ms, it was all about gret games just as ms said it would...

lol, Hammad So me pointing out that yesterday you were questioning multiple times why X1 had not passed FCC as if it pointed to some smoking gun sign of trouble, now it turns out that it was BS so now thats a personal attack? lol, I've been called every name in the ps fanboy haters book and it doesn't bother me one bit because I try to just call it like I see it, some get offended easily and yeah sometimes I'm wrong or go a bit over board but I TRY to be fair minded, still I'm human, either way Im not going to cry to the mods because someone called me out for being wrong.

avengers19781450d ago

Source major Nelson... He's job is to talk up Xbox and let people know everything is fine.
Passing FCC before Sony means very little, since we know Sony will be releasing on Nov 15 and 29, but do not know a release date for XB1. It also means that they cannot make changes to the system( without resubmitting to the FCC )
It also has nothing to do with rumored manufacturing issues.
If MS does not give a release date soon then I fear they won't be releasing in November, and I hope they do for all the people that are waiting for it.

I want the head to head release. Even if it is a week or 2 before or after the PS4.

ShinMaster1450d ago

LOL @ fanboys arguing about the FCC? wow

The issue was that Xbox fans themselves were worried about delays. But somehow they found a way to blame PlayStation fans. And so, they begin to argue.

thechosenone1450d ago (Edited 1450d ago )

If the Xb1 passed cert months ago then why is this being talked about today? Oh because no one cared about the xb1 and this info back then and they still don't today. heh

Gamingcapacity1450d ago

Just read this
"We are requesting the commission to grant short

:"

This is why the FCC results aren't common knowledge. Plus November 21st looks like the planned release date.

gaffyh1450d ago

@Gamingcapacity - I thought the exact same thing. It provides a little more evidence that a November 22nd release date could indeed happen.

Dee_Cazo1450d ago

@jatakk Maybe you can fill in the link to the Xbox One, because all your link points to is the Wireless controller. https://apps.fcc.gov/eas/Ge... Page 5

Syntax-Error1450d ago

HiddenMessage. Shut Up! All you do is bash Xbox. Sony just shows how classless they are by publically speaking bad about MS. Not once has MS spoken Sony's name in the press. Sony CEO in Europe just went on record by saying MS is dumb for packing in a free game and also saying WE'RE AHEAD OF THEM, SO WHY SHOULD WE GIVE OUR PRE-ORDERS ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

malol1450d ago

seems like MS was trying to rush again !!

LackTrue4K1449d ago (Edited 1449d ago )

I'm mostly on Sony's side when it comes to news and such, but this really?!?
.....now out of know where hu????

..........now that the XboxOne did past FCC months ago (before the PlayStation4 did)

...."NOW ITS NOT A BIG DEAL, AND NO ONE CARES?!"
lol.....

pixelsword1449d ago (Edited 1449d ago )

What's the significance? The early 360 passed the FCC certification before all of the RRoD, and so did the early PS3 before the YLoD, so that doesn't mean that there isn't problems or won't be in the future.

Nan. This is the usual suspects spreading rumors as fact. Usually M$ ignore stuff like this. But because of the recent DMR reversal, they feel like they have to respond to some of the junk being reported.

But is PS fanboy propaganda. This is the first time I have seen a console release where this has been reported as an issue.

I want proof from FCC rather than Microsoft saying so themselves.

They have changed the console specs a bit and it feels like they hadn't finalized it ESPECIALLY since they're basically saying that they got approved before Sony, so, around e3 or before e3 even....

I call bull on this. Wouldn't any spec-changes mean they need it Re-approved?? It's the only thing that I don't know 100%.

^The guy directly above me talks about sheep pretty hypocritically. 'Sony Sheep' - 'Coming from a Microsoft sheep' ... Sheep can't call out other sheep! Unless the other are Goats or something....

lastofgen1450d ago

Lol...I can't believe how big of an issue you are making of a product passing FCC.. Why in the world would two microsoft representatives lie about a product passing FCC?

Honestly, it's beyond ridiculous.

XboxFun1450d ago

@Lastgen

It's really the only thing some of these folks have to hold on to against the Xbox 1.

I mean we can already cross RAM, NSA, DRM, hUMA, Kinect required, self publishing off the list. What else can they have besides it being 100 dollars more too keep harping on about.

This is what some sony fanboys have devolved too folks, demanding FCC reports. It's past ridiculous and into the realm of plain sad.
