Xbox One “has a targeted launch date of late November,” according to PepsiCo promotion

Saturday, 31st August 2013 15:14 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Xbox One is out in November and while a release date of November 8 has been tossed about and refuted, a new report claims the system will arrive in “late November”.

This is according to a PepsiCo terms and conditions document dug up by NeoGAF which is tied with a Microsoft promotion that gives away “an Xbox One every two minutes” November 5 – January 17.

“Xbox One has targeted launch date of late November 2013,” reads the text. “Therefore, the initial shipments may be slightly delayed; please allow 12-14 weeks for delivery.”

Microsoft has yet to provide an official release date for the console beyond a “November” release.

Meanwhile, Sony’s PlayStation 4 releases in North America on November 15 and in Europe on November 29.

Thanks, CVG.

    PS4 launches in US on November 15th . . . but close enough.

    curious to see if it’ll launch after the 20th or if MS will push it closer.. That kind of thing might be written in stone at this point though, it’ll be interesting to see.

    Why is the release date so secret?

    It will be probably 1 or 2 week before PS4. They know they are losing and they cant afford Sony to release their console before the Xbone.

    If it launches a week before or a week after ps4 it really shouldn’t matter. If you didn’t preorder either console, it’s not like you will find one sitting on a shelf. They will be hard to find all the way till 1st quarter next year.

    @5 – Especially when you consider all the vultures that buy them to resell them for 2-3x the price on ebay. I feel bad for the people who honestly want one.

    I personally plan to hold out till 1st quarter anyways. I want to see which of the two deliver the better goods.

    @3 Most likely because of the Day One Update that is supposed to set all things DRM straight. It HAS to be ready for FULL roll out that night. Imagine the fiasco of people plugging up their boxes day one and not getting the update, or getting a broken one.
