Xbox One’s release date has been narrowed to “late November”. The launch window was mentioned in the terms & conditions of a PepsiCo competition, who has partnered with Microsoft to give away “thousands” of Xbox One consoles this autumn.
oooo this might be a pretty awesome launch day to watch
Nothing confirmed. Guess we'll continue to wait until we hear official word from MS (I didn't disagree with you).
"Microsoft announced a partnership with PepsiCo earlier this year, which saw “limited edition” Doritos and Mountain Dew products branded with the Xbox One logo." It's strange that marketing on crisps and drink actually works. I could never imagine seeing a Wii U logo on the side of some Wotsits and Iron Brew and thinking, "You know what... Reggie's alright. I'll get that Wii U."
Okay maybe it was wrong and it wont be exciting to watch. I thought it would be pretty exciting coming so soon after the PS4 (I would count 20/25th as late November) and with black friday so soon
Geoff Keighley will pounce on this again. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Nov 27th calling it
ps4 is better value in EU. http://www.youtube.com/watc... I might wait for a $500 ps4 in USA.
I think that was pretty obvious, but at least it won't be the same day as PS4, that would be madness.
Yeah just imagine PlayStation and XBOX fans killing each other in front of the store before it opens. Not that it would happen but you know what i mean.
I would bet money on at least 8 murders.
There would be like 5 Xbox One fans
lmao master , that would be funny.and it begins http://www.2d-x.com/wp-cont...
Can you imagine Greenpowerz vs Bluepowerzz standing in line at Gamestop and having to look at each other's mug for a few hours before midnight. LOL, it will be ugly
@MasterCornholio your comment reminded me of this picutre. BK beat down on Ronald McD. Priceless! http://cache.gawker.com/ass...
there would be so much shit talkin between lines say the had one line for ps4 one for xbox 1 there would definetly be some fights breakin out for sure
THIS. IS. NEXT-GEN!
If you didn't kick something into a pit, then it isn't. I'm assuming you didn't, because THIS IS CURRENT GEN! *kicks pepsi bottle into garbage can*
Loool i read that in a spartan voice :p
It would be pretty hilarious though.
PS4:Madness? THIS IS PLAYSTATION *kicks Xbone into bottomless pit*
Launching the same day would be stupid. I can see some stores splitting the lines, one console on the left and the other on the right. Just think how bad it would look when one line is so much longer than the other.
I could understand trying to create some anticipation for popularity tactics, but come on Microsoft let us know already!
I was really hoping for an early Nov date. Another few weeks to wait, and both consoles launching next to each other, the old wallet will take a beating
better not be the same day as ps4 comes out in eu maybe the week before will be better
NOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLL!!!!! I want an early November launch. ;(
27th November is the rumoured date. All those saying they wanted an early date, do you really think MS is ready? It seems as though they are really struggling and need as much time as they can get.
The 27th doesn't seem like a good choice as it's the day before thanksgiving.
Is "late" november really "head to head" with Nov 15th..? I think they would say "mid" november... "Late" leads me to believe it would be AFTER the middle by at least a day? Maybe I'm just an idiot though. Entirely possible. Actually... yeah that's it.
nah I agree with you... and I think xboxone will be successful in it's own right, but MS would have needed an October or earlier date to really do any damage... that might convince people with good money flow to pick up an xboxone early, play ryse for a bit, then pick up a ps4 around xmas.... maybe... having them close together or xbone afterward, will just continue the major beating that ps4 is currently putting on xbone, unabated. In the current scenario, people like me with limited time, will get a ps4 pronto, then play some games, wait for a price cut on xbone, some more games maybe, and pick one up later.... Everything and I do mean everything this gen is slanted toward Sony. They are putting in work and it's showing.
You should had said XBone. Its just kind of a staple now. And Xbox is not doomed as some idiot fanboys are saying. Its just not going to be as hot as ps4 for a while until they announce a price drop imo. Still as a PS fanboy Beyond!
Figured. Once rumored dates of the 5th and 8th were debunked it was pretty much a given that this thing was coming sometimes after PS4's 15th launch.
I know for sure that microsoft are pushing xboxone to be released on Nov, because unlike PS4, Xboxone wasn't planned to hit market on Nov that is what it looks like. I hope it doesn't turn out a disaster like 360.
Microsoft has said November the entire time.. While sony just said holidays.. I really dont understand the notion that they are rushing... Some things on the software side aren't ready yet but that goes for both.. And both have until launch day to work on software so nothing is actually late yet
Another guess based on a flimsy lead. Not a story. Nothing.
This site is for news AND rumors, that is what it us described as...
Meanwhile Sony announces a partnership with Coca Cola, yet again [email protected]#tting in MS' cornflakes.... jk - but the way this gen's going.....
Nothing would happen at any midnight launch if they released the same day, you'd just have two lines of geeks sneering at each other "Nnnhhh Blah blah blah 50% more powerful" "Nnnhhh Blah blah blah Cloud powwa" Can't we all just enjoy each consoles games ?
That is hilarious. Then they could do one of those dance offs and then each sides main twerker does a solo while the others grab their cross shoulder and nod up and down.
there would definetly be fights its like the kid that talks shit on xbox live is now standing infront of u talkin shit.. u cant tell me u never wanted to reach through ur tv an choke a bitch before
Well said good sir, well said. I'd still show up with a gallon of kool aid though lol.
Nothing would happen any way, people only hate on the net.
So that puts 3 or 4 days where it would probably release. I'm guessing it would release before black friday as well. So my prediction is Novemeber 22nd.
so Black Friday it is
False and article has no confirmation , I would say the 5th November will be Xbox One release date
On the same day as their biggest release game? Lol no.
The article is in regards to a contest giving anyway Xbox prizes. It's obvious that the contest prizes won't for Day1 - whenever that may be - but will be shipped to winners "late November." That's how I interpret this information.
http://www.every2minutes.co... Nightly auctions begin November 5th..... is that the DATE!!!
Read the T&C on the page. It won't be coming out then.
Remember, remember the 5th of November ... It's what I believe until proven wrong.
26th of nov like i have been saying and getting major disagrees for.
TRUE LAUNCH DATE IS LATE OCTOBER EARLY NOVEMBER. I come to this conclusion based of September XB1 marketing. here is proof. from source http://www.linkedin.com/in/... CryEngine Cinematic Specialist GNet Media June 2013 – Present (3 months)West Hollywood, California I built out 7 cinematic shots for Crytek's Xbox One title: "Ryse, Son of Rome" These shots will be used for Marketing purposes in September 2013. For these shots I was provided an asset library of props, character models, animations, particle effects, and pre-existing game levels. All of which were in various different levels of completion. My job was to go from a pre visualized concept of what the shot was suppose to be, with text as a placeholder for the action I was to create. For each shot, there was also motion control data at the beginning, which corresponded with live action "developer" which was composited into the beginning of the shot filmed with the Red Epic™ Camera up against a blue screen. I then hand animated the rest of the camera movement. On some shots, pre-existing cinematics were utilized for sections of the action, and mixed with action I put together, which took around an average of 7 days for each shot to be build out. There was a large mixture of hand animation which I did right in the Engine, and Pre-animated characters, which I needed to edit together several animations and offset timings and such to build out larger things like intelligent battle formations, crowd battle scenes, or kill somebody specific with a flaming arrow, which would have been hand keyed. The action in the shots included custom keyed Archer volleys, Catapult explosions with Units getting blown up. Battle formations, custom Prop keyed animation, Camera Animation including Depth of Field to guide the viewers eye. Particle Effect creation, modification, & improvement for such things like birds flocking, flaming arrows, & explosions; scene lighting changes, additions, & lighting caused by effects. I also rendered all of the scenes at 2k res @ 60fps.
They need to launch by 11/22, if they wait to Black Friday the X1 will get lost in the shopping craze of that weekend, especially with few if any consoles on shelves.
The 360 came out on the 22nd. Not that I believe this rumor, but I think that would be the LATEST date. Also, sites are going crazy saying that it's late November based on info from a Doritos contest. Let Microsoft announce the date. I really think they'll want to launch with Call of Duty since Microsoft seems to have a partnership with that brand. Just my thought.
They really need to come out in mid or early November. But if they really have balls then delay it for half a year and release with better specs. That would totally rock the console war, because right now they're the industry red headed step child.
Thats not "balls", thats showing they dont have their shit together. If you want to kill the support you have from the people who have pre-ordered, pulling the rug out from beneath them is the way to do it.
It'll launch when MS says so...
You don't say.
Precisely why the speculation is unnecessary...
If so, it'll still be delayed in other parts of the world. Xbox One's release isn't that great...
Not interested. I'll be playing PS4 from Nov. 15th. Microsoft has done absolutely nothing to convince me to buy the Xbone. I like Forza 5, but that's about it, and with their horrific policies (reversed upon the severe beating they were taking in preorders from Sony) and mandatory kinect, I'm going to take a wait and see approach. Sony gives me a more powerful console for less, free DriveClub and 3 free indie titles (including Resogun)in addition to psplus instant games collection, and Sony has the best first party developers in the business cranking out goty contender after goty contender for the ps3 even as they prepare to dominate with the games in development for the PS4. Sorry Microsoft, you failed on this one. With all the money they made off of gamers with the rip-off that is live gold, they should have designed a console that is an absolute powerhouse and held technical superiority. Instead, Sony beat them on that, and beats them everywhere else (except for TV watching? Really, Microsoft?). There is no contest, no competition. PS4.
Fair enough, take the number of X1's shipped and that will be the minimum number of people that disagree with you. (It will be a lot)
if it releases before ps4,that will most likely be the only time xone will lead over ps4 for the entire generation.(imo)
