Microsoft eyes November 8 launch date for Xbox One — report

Microsoft may soon announce that the Xbox One will beat the PlayStation 4 out the door.

The company has yet to announce when the Xbox One can be on hand, but Microsoft may just come to a decision to launch the high-powered console on November 8, gaming site Kotuku reported on Monday, citing an individual who has knowledge of Microsoft’s plans.

The move would allow the Xbox One to take a seat on retailer cabinets for one week sooner than Sony launches its play station four on November 15.

Sony announced prior this month that its console would be to be had in November. Although Microsoft prior this month announced a number of video games can be to be had for the Xbox One, it balked at providing a launch date, leaving some to marvel if the move was to let Sony exhibit its hand first, and then make a decision when it would launch its personal software.

the point of interest of Kotuku’s document comes from a convention call that was supposedly held with Wal-Mart employees. A screenshot reportedly given to Wal-Mart staff and revealed by Kotuku shows the Xbox One launching on November eight. However, in contrast to all the different gaming products, including the ps4, listed in that handout, the Xbox One’s launch date would not say “validated.” In other words, its launch date may still be up within the air.
