First Xbox One consoles leaving factory

Initial wave of systems on the way out of manufacturing facility and being readied for release at retailers across the world on November 22.

Microsoft today released images of the first wave of Xbox One consoles leaving the factory and heading to retailers ahead of the system's November 22 global launch date.

Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb provided the images of the first case and pallet of systems leaving a factory in an undisclosed location.

The boxes are specially marked "Do not sell or display before November 22, 2013."

Microsoft announced today that the Xbox One has entered full production and committed to a November 22 launch date across the world. In addition, a limited number of Xbox One Day One Edition consoles are now back in a stock.

The Xbox One's November 22 launch date is exactly eight years after the Xbox 360 debuted on November 22, 2005. The system will be available at launch for $500, which is a "very good deal," according to Microsoft.

Keep it simple like the 360 vs PS3...Xbox for the adults and PS for the kids

Funny how all these console haters come in here and bash X1 or PS4 saying PC rules. Don't they realize they playing on MS windows. Some on their Sony computers. LoL such idiots.

Did this guy say Microsoft has been failing since E3? Doesn't he know Microsoft won more awards than Sony at E3? Xbox One sold out pre-orders faster than PS4 guy.

I know these things don't just magically materialise in stores on day one, but it's weird to think that these things are already out there almost three months before anyone can get their hands on one.

More importantly, I guess this means Microsoft have finally decided what will come in the box with the console.

wow, theyre really gonna do a play by play of pre-release info for the next two months huh? that actually keeps adding coal to the hype train's furnace, kind of smart even if some of the news might sound silly

They are really gonna post this that far in advance?? Thanks for letting some people know out there...sheesh. Do they not remember the heists that went on when 360 was released and they stole all those consoles? Who is to say they wont try to snag this shipment. Not that it would effect me getting one as im not going to be getting one.

@WolfgarTheQuiet Do people know anything or at least think about what they say before they make a comment that makes no sense. The Xbox One has a Temp monitor that if the X1 gets warm it runs at a more energy efficient so it does not overheat but apparently this is a Sony fanboy who just like to hear himself speak/talk.

@COVAtheNOVA Hell's yeah i can't wait especially till people realize that the people who jumped ship on MS will realize that they are also paying for online service that sucks balls. The only thing good about the PS4 is free games which is the only use my PS3 gets is the free games.

I second that buddy. Xbox One for me, no doubt. I have zero interest in the PS4. All 3rd party games will look the same on either. I'm not interested in exclusives at all. Based off overall features, capabilities, & what's in the box. Xbox One wins & that's why it's the next-generation console I'm buying.

@linksfire This will definitely effect me. If I can get half of for $250 Im in.

I got the 360 pro for $200 but not from the heist but from someone with burnt credit cards.

@KiLLaMaNiLLa69 @WolfgarTheQuiet you own one? u believe everything u hear? Tell me one computer that will never break down? None. So don't be a MS fanboy who just like to hear himself speak/talk

@nissanmaxima lol. based on overall features capabilities, exclusives and indie partnerships, PS4 wins hands down. keep telling yourself otherwise

@KiLLaMaNiLLa69 @whitechapel34 @jophy @WolfgarTheQuiet I was actually agreeing with you so re read my comment. ps3 online servive is trash.. hacked twice and no party chat, but ya ill go "smoke my dinner" haha
, so thats why im buying an X1, also because of better exclusives, a better controller, and overall better online experiece

@jophy @KiLLaMaNiLLa69 @WolfgarTheQuiet and you hear that sonys console is more powerful so you automatically assume its better? cause the ps3 was more powerful then the xbox and resulted in a very mediocre experience, besides a few exclusives that had low replay value after you beat the campaign

@WolfgarTheQuiet @nissanmaxima Is this moron still around here trying to sell people on PS4 everyone knows its got more power so does the PS3 over the 360 but Xbox 360 is still more popular and had better sales. And the Xbox One has the cloud to back it up and a better launch lineup and 300,000 servers for xbox live which is more then double then the 360 so by all means go ahead like i said the PS4 is only good for free games because they're online service is garbage.
