Did Amazon Reveal the Xbox One Launch Date for Black Friday in the US?

Joel Taveras writes, "Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the holiday season where droves of American shoppers find themselves stuffed full of turkey from the night before and lined up in front of big box retailers across the country; all looking for the best holiday bargain they can find. But is Microsoft really about to launch a console on the biggest shopping day of the year? If the recent date changes to Amazon's Xbox One's listings are any indication, it's looking like that might just be happening."

"(UPDATE) Here’s a screencap of a conversation with an Amazon support rep confirming the 27th."

Per Amazon: "The release date for this video game is subject to change. This item will release in November 2013. If you pre-order, we will send you an email when the official release date is announced."

Also, I don't think that Shaniele from Amazon can be considered a legitimate source lol


Dudebro 1: "Hey man! New Xbox on Black Friday!"

Dudebro 2: "Sweet! Where did you hear that? Kotaku? N4G? GAF?"

Dudebro 1: " Naw man, my girl Shaniele in customer service."

Dudebro 2: (facepalm)

KwietStorm1876d ago

Shaniele? Shaniele from Amazon? Maaaaan listen..

Godz Kastro1876d ago

Your joke fails... A "Dudebro" would have no idea what those nerd sites are...face palm

steves11261876d ago (Edited 1876d ago )

But wouldn't she have the Item details and the lack of knowledge about the industry to unknowingly tell someone in a customer service chat box? Yes.

Also, what kind of place holder date is the 27th... Its usually the 31st.

redwin1875d ago

Remember, remember the 5th of November. We might find out this weekend.

This is just a support rep reading off a product page. You can tell she is otherwise uninformed.

joab7771876d ago

It would be a terrible idea! Can u imagime how many ppl would die! And stores open even earlier for pre orders. would b giving Sony a headstart after they gave MS the chanve to launch first.

hqgamez1876d ago

I won't be getting no xbox one on black friday. I'm in shopping mode for something that is cheap and discounted. What? they gonna drop the the price? Nope. I go for deals. MS is doing this to hope people think it's a steal or just to get news attention that a lot of people went to get them.

wsoutlaw871875d ago

ya that would be pretty stupid. If I wanted one day one theres no chance id be waiting in a black Friday line for one so Id wait

3-4-51875d ago

They each want to release it the day before.

showtimefolks1875d ago

Could we really get 2 consoles launching in the same week?

Damn that would be awesome to see

Happy gaming everyone

I seriously doubt it will be exactly on Black Friday.

KingKelloggTheWH1876d ago

Im not sure if thats brilliant or idiotic...On one hand its friggen Black Friday, but at the same time people will only be going for sales..Unless they have a sale(day one sale would be Insane) I say it's a bad move.

LOGICWINS1876d ago

Black Friday isn't only about sales. Its the last chance for many people to get hard to find items. It would actually make a lot of sense to release the One on Black Friday since many people are already in shopping mode.

Agent_00_Revan1876d ago

yea but people usually need to buy A Lot of things that day, and usually cheap. It doesn't make sense to launch a $500 product with $60 games when people are rioting over games on sale for $20.

lashes2ashes1876d ago

Most people that want one will avoid going to get one on day one if its a Black Friday release. I live in a town of only 20,000 people and I don't even go in town to shop on that date. Insane traffic, long lines.

JackVagina1876d ago

why would it even matter? come November, all consoles (PS4 and X1) will be per-orderd out until 2014

LOGICWINS1876d ago (Edited 1876d ago )

@azshorty2003- It would still sell out due to limited quantities.

@JackVagina- We don't know that.

obelix011876d ago

It makes sense especially if its a special black Friday bundle.

"Im not sure if thats brilliant or idiotic..."

It's idiotic. Not because of anything you said, but the fact that Black Friday is filled with crazy people and long lines. I might wait in a line for a console launch, maybe go in when it opened for my preorder, but I would NOT brave a console launch with all the crazy Black Friday people. Probably end up trampled before I got my system.

redwin1875d ago

Everyone will be in a spending mood that day. I can see people saying $&@k it, can't get the ps4 for s few weeks, because its sold out, I'll take the ONE for now .

Jaqen_Hghar1875d ago

it will sell out whether it's BF or the week before. A man doesn't think this is an issue. 2 weeks will make no difference in the long run. A man just hopes for the same exact day so fanboys can awkwardly stand opposite each other before breaking out in violence and re-enacting the battle from Anchorman.

PtRoLLFacE1876d ago (Edited 1876d ago )

seriously unless you have pre order that damm thing your are not getting it the same day, even if is black friday?

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt1876d ago

that would be wack if it was on black fridayy, microsoft can do better then the end of the month

Deadpoolio1876d ago

It doesn't matter if you didn't pre order one your not getting the damn thing..Or the PS4 Only a moron would walk into any store and actually think they are going to walk out with one regardless of the date

airgangstarr1875d ago (Edited 1875d ago )

i dont care if its in december i just want them to launch it when its ready not rush it out an send us another piece of shit in a day one box
