Xbox One slated for Nov 8 launch in leaked email – report

Tuesday, 27th August 2013 08:25 GMT By Dave Cook

Xbox One could launch on November 8, according to a leaked email said to have originated from a source close to retailer Walmart.

The email was apparently sent to Kotaku by an individual who works at the marketing company responsible for Walmart signage and product placement.

The November 8 date is said to come from an email that details a company conference call, which is intended to cover all of Walmart’s planned midnight openings for Xbox One’s launch.

You can find an image of the email here. Note that Xbox One’s launch date has yet to be confirmed, so again, treat this as rumour.

PlayStation 4 on the other hand, is confirmed for a November 15 launch in the States.

What do you make of the above?

    This is just getting ridiculous: we all presume/know the console is going to be released in November. It’s in 2 months and a half. Why don’t they just announce a release date already?

    It’s not like they don’t know when they will be able to release it. Until when are they going to wait? 2 weeks before launch to announce it?

    If the rumor is true, MS will have to confirm it today. Sounds like a good launch date. Guess they didn’t want to launch on the 5th and have to share the spotlight with COD Ghost.

    Looks legit.

    Nov 8 US, Nov 22 EU – MS have to get something over Sony before launch.

    I’m sure that despite all the changes and overclock, the system has not been rushed and has been fully tested.
    I’m convinced it will not suffer the shocking failure rate of the 360.
    I have faith Microsoft do not have a “Get it out first, deal with returns later” mentality.

    I’ll be disappointed if the console doesn’t release on a Monday. I have too many fond memories of Sonic Two-sday to pass up on an Xbox One-day.

    if micro$hafts release before the ps4, get ready for a new area of rrod infested and disk ripping shaitxboxes… because its totally impossible for micro$haft to get quality components and the soldering to settle this early…

    You can play an XO without the kinect attached. Did the tinfoil crowd not get the memo?

    Fake, it’s missing a zero before the number 8, like with 01 September.

    Announced afterwards. Then with all the changes to their policies. I would be surprised if they did come out the gate before Sony. Hope their consoles won’t be shit made like the 360.

    @23 Depends how rushed first batches of HW need be. There may be HW issues with first rounds of PS 4 and X1 because they need rush manufacturing in order to meet demand.

    This is one I actually won’t immediately call “fake” on. But if Nov 9 comes along and I don’t have my XB1, I’ll be pretty convinced it’s fake.

    If $onys release before the xb1, get ready for a new area of rrod infested and disk ripping shaitbs4s… because its totally impossible for $ony to get quality components and the soldering to settle this early…
