Responding to Amazon’s November 27 release listing for the Xbox One, Microsoft has denied it has set an official launch date.
“We have not informed our retail partners about a specific launch date for the Xbox One,” a representative told IGN.
“It is commonplace for retailers to put placeholders dates and prices into our system until they are given a specific date and price. We are excited to release the Xbox One in November 2013.”
As Steph noted when posting the listing, it was always an odd date – too late in the month to pip Sony at the post, and well behind the release of Call of Duty: Ghosts. Also, a Wednesday, which is weird.
