Xbox One will not launch on November 8 - Report

Xbox One will reportedly not launch on November 8 as claimed; unnamed second source suggests later November sale.


Yesterday, a rumour circulated that the as-yet-undated Xbox One may launch on November 8. That information appears to have been incorrect, according to an update by the original reporter, Kotaku.

No Caption Provided

The previous information--allegedly sourced through a marketing company with close ties to US retailer Walmart--suggested that Microsoft's next-generation console could launch in the first half of the month. A second, unnamed source, reportedly close to the Xbox creator, told the publication that the November 8 date is false, supposedly saying that the date will be later than was originally reported. No specifics were given.

GameSpot contacted Microsoft seeking confirmation, but a spokesperson was unavailable at the time of publication. As mentioned previously, in the absence of any official release details for the system, all dates should be treated as speculation.

Microsoft has so far only confirmed that the Xbox One will launch this November for $499/€499/£429/A$599.
