The internet has been flooded with rumour and speculation in recent weeks about the possible release date for the Xbox One. Initially it was believed to be November 8th, but a source close to Microsoft has since shot down the date.
"So why could November 22nd be the release date for the Xbox One?" Because you said previously in the article "An un-named source close to a large online organisation contacted us and stated the Xbox One release date will be November 22nd" The writing of this is very odd considering a "source" told them it will be the 22nd
That's correct, but until Microsoft state otherwise, we have no option but to brand it as rumour and back up with reasons why the source is likely correct.
I see what you were doing now. Sorry
The release date of the bone doesn't matter. The PS4 is dominating the pre-order scene in both console and games.
Weeeeeeeeeeee! Another nameless rumor!
Reported for too many e's. On topic, I'd expect the console to release ahead of Black Friday.
I knew I should have used one less 'e'.
It only took a day to make the November 8th release date false, lets see how fast this one becomes false
That's a week before PS4 in the UK/Europe and a week later in the US. Would be a good time.
Well, if it's not before the PS4 and it's not the same as the PS4. Yet it is in Nov, then we only have 2 weeks to play with here, lol.
And they won't want to release the week of black Friday, they won't want make it even harder for people to buy the console. So that doesn't leave a whole lot of options.
Yep, totally agree, interesting situation once again for the X1. I'll be at Pax this weekend which is in MS home town. So I'm sure they will address this then.
im going to wait in line with a ps4 logo shirt lol. no not really.
Well at least that wouldn't be as douche as what these guys did for the PS3 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
guy looks like a creature in skyrim dressed like a pimp.
what a waste of money. also skin, space, etc...
If this is true it wont go in MS's favour
Other than the "week earlier than PS4" rumor that is now debunked, this would be the only other logical week to launch their console. It's not like they can launch on the same night as the PS4 without going head-to-head with that console's hype. They also can't be released on the 29th.... Black Friday. If they plan to release on a Friday, it would have to be the 22nd. Jeez.... I'm just now starting to see why launching the 360 as early as possible before the PS3 was so important to them. Had they gone head-to-head then, they would have lost then, too. And that's WITH horrendous PR and "hype" surrounding Sony and the PS3 back then. Just imagine it now....
It makes sense but will Europe release date coincide or be in december? that worries me
it's really strange to me that MS hasn't mentioned a release date yet.
Oh look another release date for the Xbox... So who's going to say it isn't true this time?
Well it's not like telling us will make it happen any faster. They only need to announce it soon enough for the retailers to get prepared.
a fortuneteller told me that xbone release date will either be soon,soonish or sooner its more reliable than inside sources lol
Probably be announced officially at PAX
... if they drop their stupid fear of facing the public like they did at E3 (cancelling interviews, and access to MS execs after their presentation), and gamescom.
I think the end of november might be a little too late depending on how microsoft handle this, like for example christmas time, people will probably want an xbox one under theyre tree. and with sales already being stopped and not expected by release, it could hurt them if they dont get on top of it.
i have from my source they're releasing it at 5.05am in america and 6.25pm in the UK on the 2nd of november. see how much fun "source" information can be
Story is a fake and Microsoft will launch earlier so the Ps fanboy that submitted this keep dreaming
Yeah... well, yesterday a "source" said it was Nov. 8th. I think I'll wait for official word
It's gonna come out tomorrow now run with that rumor as well.
A man expects MS to announce that One will release on November 14 to beat PS4 to market with free COD for US members. However they will have only shipped about 500 from their manufacturing facilities by that time so they will have their only lead of the generation for about 24 hours before being buried. EDIT: Only lead over PS4 considering WiiU has a millions strong lead over both right now and will until mid next year at least.
