Yesterday, we heard from a source at a marketing company who had seen documentation pencilling the Xbox One in for a tentative, unconfirmed November 8 launch. Today, a source close to Microsoft tells us that's not the case.
i think we may get the date at PAX ... fingers crossed for 15th lol
I'll be there this weekend. MS hometown, so pretty sure they should announce it.
It's also would be Microsoft first big announcement ever at Pax prime.
Hope so... I REALLY want the PS4 and XBOX One to release on the same day. It would be the most epic console launch day ever. Fanboy's heads would explode, and the media hype would be huge for both Sony and MS, and ultimately boost sales of both.
A rumor that is discrediting a rumor. Oh the irony.
We know its November, a week or two before or after isn't going to matter except for fanboy talk, those who really want a X1 or ps4 aren't going to change their minds based on a couple of weeks and the sales for the 1st few months will depend more on stock than which launched first.
No offense creat,But at 6 2 and 300 lbs you are extremely obese.And would have trouble doing anything to anyone without having a heart attack.Please lose some weight and live long and prosper.
I hope they do I need to know what weekend to take off work!
remember, remember, the fifth of November
He could be 6'2" 300 lbs and still be in decent shape. Just saying. LOL
1 week is pretty irrelevant. If they want to surprise everyone, launch it in September.
hanging out at night waiting for 12:00 is actually kinda' neat. You are hanging out with a bunch of like minded people BSing about games and stuff. That is what i did for the 360 on launch and it was just me and a bunch of 35+ year old guys, some with their wives, hanging out till gamestop opened at 12:00 sharp.
Not impossible but i would be surprised if the console released before PS4 at this point. There simply isn't enough evidence to support a release before PS4. Sony so far has seemed slightly in front of Microsoft in terms of getting their console ready for release. -XBox one games are still being demo'd on high end pc's as opposed to the actual console. -still no fcc filing -minimization of release territories in Europe The big one here is games still not being demoed on the actual hardware. All of this points to MS not being entirely ready to release the console. However i am not an insider, don't claim to be and don't know anything happening internally at MS or sony. But from my common man outsiders perspective it would seem MS would have to REALLY push hard to release ahead of PS4.There are still three months before release which can be plenty of time really so certainly not impossible. I just don't see it as likely. But who knows maybe MS will be like apple and announce release date a few weeks before release.
what are you talking about, like seriously, the games were played on the x12 many of them, or does the drug you taking make you spew out nonsence
im pretty sure people would actually be killed
The most logical date for Microsoft in my opinion, would be November 5th. It's the Same day as CoD: Ghost, and given the exclusive deals with Activision for CoD, that would guarantee units move off shelves. so I'm calling it now, November 5th release date
I can't believe people disagree with this... I'm 90% sure you're right. Nov 5 is the date I've been saying since I saw the CoD release date.
Yep. I agree with you. Xbox One November 5 but with Cod included.
That's fine, sometime in November I'm sure.
I wonder who's gonna take the blame for fanboy bloodshed at malls across America.
can we have 2 consoles launch the same day?
No way in hell they'll launch on the 15! PS fans and xbox fanS crammed-in gamestop....NOT A PRETTY SIGHT!
There will be blood.
I was looking to pre order the Xbox One on Best Buy's website a week ago but decided to wait a little longer. I did however add the item to the shopping cart and selected Store Pickup and they had 11/30/2013 as the Pickup Date. Here is a link that shows the date. http://www.bestbuy.com/site...
Could it be 11/30/2013? I don't know but I wanted to let everybody know what I found. :)
11/30 is just a placeholder.
I hope it's anyday but the 15th. I don't need more people in line at midnight.
I hope it's any day BUT the 15th. I don't want the lineup doubling to pick up my ps4 and games.
If its not launching on November 8th, its not coming on the 15th either. That's PS4 launch and would be too chaotic for retail to handle. So that leaves either the 22nd or the 29th. I think 22nd is the safest best.
"The Xbox One Will Not Launch" fixed
I highly doubt they'd launch on the same day. It'll probably be the tuesday before or after, or the friday after the PS4 launch.
Im sticking with Nov 22nd or the 29th.
29th is when PS4 launches in Europe, doubt it will be then
They might as well hold it off until June of 2014. This console war is over
So the week after the PS4? Wow, interesting call.
better then the idea of releasing on the same day we dont want a mortal kombat armageddon happening here lol
Yeah that would be a burtal sight at stores, lol.
You mean the opening where everyone's trying to get on top of the pyramid to defeat blaze? Lol I can see something like that Happening...
FINISH HIM hahaha... that wud be way too bloody in the streets
@mafiahajeri lol thats exactly what im talking about :P
Surely there is production problems if they dont launch first. They've got so many less countries to ship to, they still havent certified the console by FCC whatever that means?(but surely it's not a good sign, the console still doesn't seem final), the design of the box is very large, reveal was at the latest oppurtunity. It all just seems strange to me. Perhaps not obviously but it seems like more effort has gone into Kinect than the console.
a custom built gaming machine and you have the nerve to say that, its the ps4 that was put together with spare parts not the ps4, they spent more time on kinect then sony did with the ps4 most likely as well
@badkolo What you just said...it makes no sense. None.
@badkolo And that is why the PS4 is more powerful AND cheaper.....
@ badkolo again with the off-the-shelf nonsense. prove it.
22nd would be a good date if they ship in all 13 countries at the same date. 1 week after in the us and 1 week before in Europe compared to the PS4.
Microsoft vs Sony round 1 fight!!!
sony does a fatality lol ill buy a ps4 the day xbox 1 comes out
Rumors are so boring.
especially Xbone articles
Xbox rumors on N4G are never boring, they are the main attraction. ;)
all my preordered game at amazon getting a date of nov 27...
How long have they been listed as the 27th, and was that date updated from a different one?
ya they been updating it this the past week into this one..they originally had them as coming out on dec 31
Yeah I noticed this yesterday all games have the date November 27 and they say Day One Edition on them so this makes me believe that the Xbone will be released that day.
That would be interesting going to pick up my Xbox on November 15 seeing all the Sony boys stare me down and give me dirty looks I think it would be cool for both systems to launch on the same day but I highly doubt it will happen it would Definitely f be a sight to see it would be talked about in the future for sure
Eeek! He has an XBone!! Burn it with fire!!! *does what AMD did to NVIDIA * http://m.youtube.com/watch?...
Dirty looks? If anything, they'd point and laugh. Both systems should launch on the same day. Sony will win regardless.
My god, the fights that would break out in line ... I would be legitimately scared to wait out for my PS4 if these things launch on the same date.
Dirty looks? What are you exiting a brothel or something? Lol you must be spending to much time on the Internet you probably are paranoid thinking anyone who gives you a dirty look about anything is a sony fanboy xD
I hope they don't launch the same day. Literally would leave GameStop with 2 XB1 consoles 1 PS4 console Extra dual shock controller Extra XB1 controller Forza5 KILLZONE RYSE COD Ghost Watch Dogs Dead Rising 3 Geesh.......I will be packing heat just in case someone wants to be a bad guy.
I say November 12th if they don't have production problems. If they do probably something like the 26th. Same night would be fun though.
If they don't give a date in the next 3 weeks I'm gunna assume the worst and say it getting delayed to 2014. They really need to get with the program. Gamescom was the perfect place to tell the date. They aren't even going to TGS, so isn't pax the only one left?
Microsoft can't afford to do a 180 on the release date, i fear it would be one too many
So I've got a question, if this "source" knows its not the 8th, then why wouldn't he give a date?
The author probably has a source in or close to microsoft so leaking information like that would jeopardize their relationship
Only knows when its not probably, they probably know it'll be towards the end of November, the 26th to be exact
November 22 I am guessing
There's no way retailers would stand for the nightmare that would be a simultaneous release of those two systems.
Hope they will, I'd get shirts made up showing the pros of the PS4. There'll be a lot of them
Phantom disagrees* Releasing simultaneously would create unnecessary and avoidable problems at retail. And it wouldn't do consumers any real favors. Releasing a week or two before or after (the better choice imo) wouldn't really help or hurt in any significant way as long as there are no supply issues. I'm sure it would give the people waiting in line plenty to keep from getting bored.
