Xbox One development was not rushed, insists Major Nelson

Microsoft's Larry 'Major Nelson' Hyrb has taken to Reddit to address concerns that Xbox One development has been rushed. He has stressed that this is not the case.

Conversing with users on this Reddit thread, Hyrb said, "The Xbox One program has been in development for years, so calling it 'Rushed' is incorrect. Did we have a few challenges between May and August? Sure. But we are working on our own schedule - not any one else's. At Gamescom, every game in the Xbox booth was running on final Xbox One hardware. Every. Single. One. That would paint a very different take on the being 'rushed.'"

The console has yet to be dated, although recent rumours suggest a late November launch.
