A number of GAME stores and IGN are saying we might find out the release date of the X1 TODAY

"The Xbox One release date could be announced today, if UK retailers are to be believed.

A number of GAME stores along with its Xbox specialist shop and ShopTo have all tweeted that Microsoft will announce the release date of its upcoming console later today.

We know for certain that the Xbox One is down to release in North America and Europe sometime in November, but exactly when is yet to be revealed. During its Gamescom press conference, Sony confirmed that the PlayStation 4 will be available on November 15 in North America and November 29 in Europe.

We're reached out to Microsoft to see if the rumours are true, so be sure to check back to IGN later to see if we've finally been put out of our misery"

What are your predictions on the release date ?

@jimmyfenix: Much like CBOAT I have inside information and I can tell this secret finally.

The XBO is launching September 17th bundled with an exclusive Xbox ONE version of Grand Theft Auto V!

I suppose I'll guess either the 11th/12th or 22nd of November. 22nd makes the most sense, to me, as a worldwide launch in their initial territories (not that far behind the Ps4, doesn't rush them much, allows them to get the European market a week early as a compromise) while the 11th or 12th allows for snappy marketing ("11/11!" "11/12/13!") and gets out a few days early, but that might be cutting it too close.

Not really:

EU Xbox One launch: Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain and UK. That's 7.

EU PS4 launch: United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Sweden and Switzerland. That's 18! Not to mention that the lead for the PS4 in those 11 countries is months.

@nictel: Sure, that's an incredibly important point to remember. Should be very exciting to see UK and US sales.

Don't forget the launch date in other regions: Next March.

#23 Posted by Humanity (7945 posts) -

I'm still waiting for surprise info of "hey we're also releasing in the rest of the world too!" but until then I just hope the PS4 isn't going to be UI train wreck like the PS3. I'd much rather spend that $500 on a console rather than a new GeForce 770.

I can't believe they didn't take the opportunity to beat PS4 on this one front, it's almost like they have some deal, swapping who will have the upperhand from one generation to the next.

Seems like they are both missing out not getting them out before COD ships; the most relevant traffic those stores get annually, why wouldn't you want those people to see your new box?

#26 Posted by Humanity (7945 posts) -

In a way it seems like a good move. When people go and buy out all the PS4's there will be a fair amount of people who want to play some nextgen multiplatform games and don't want to wait a month for new PS4's to re-stock and just might get the XBO instead.

Well, The Xbone does have a Blu-ray drive in it.. MS and Sony make deals all the time.It's just business.

Console wars are always exciting, fan boys are going to go mad whatever the numbers are going to be.

Dammit there is no way I can get that week off!

#30 Posted by Kaarloss (16 posts) -

Guess its dictated by their stock levels why they didnt go for week before ps4 in america. not surprising if they have had to postpone alot of north europe which although not official reason might very well be linked to same stock issues

Fast fact: I believe Nov 22 is the earliest day Thanksgiving can ever fall on. Too bad it isn't turkey time.

#39 Edited by AlexGlass (688 posts) -

Cool. Same date as the 360. With the PS4 launching a week earlier in the USA, it's going to be an insane November.

#44 Posted by sarahsdad (1037 posts) -

Not that I've ever worked retail or manufacturing, but that seems dangerously close to Black Friday. I guess shipments can/will come in all the time at stores that week, it just seems unusual that they would leave so little time to get re-stock units on shelves before such a big shopping day.

#45 Edited by oldenglishC (858 posts) -

@jimmyfenix: It's a real safe bet that there's some kind shit storm going on over there. Those people are always pissed about something.

My dumb comment was from a story someone posted a day or two ago. There was a facebook screencap with several non english comments and a big "NEOGAF ARE FURIOUS !" right in the middle of it all. I was probably way more entertained by it than I should have been.

#46 Posted by Nictel (2312 posts) -

Apparently pre-orders are not going great in the EU as there are now free game(s) included with the Day One Edition: http://www.videogamer.com/xboxone/forza_motorsport_5/news/xbox_one_day_one_edition_to_also_come_bundled_with_forza_motorsport_5.html

For instance the PS4 is on place 7 of the best sellers at amazon.co.uk where the Xbox One is on place 33. I read a rumor that the real reason for not launching in more EU countries is that they want more consoles for the US market. The low pre-order numbers could be why. This is all speculation of course.

#47 Posted by BRich (428 posts) -

@nictel: It includes the choice of Fifa or Forza. Great idea especially considering its a digital copy of the game. God I hope they do this in the U.S. since I'm planning to go all digital anyways.

This might be why. A factory that MIGHT make the ram for the PS4 is up in flames.

I do not know if you where joking or not but they really are losing their shit over there right now.

I always assume NEOGaf is going crazy about something everyday. If we are lucky the are going ballistic about something new.
