Microsoft announced as far back as E3 2013 that it would be releasing its Xbox One console in November. But despite Gamescom in Cologne that saw Sony specify just when the PlayStation would be releasing, Microsoft is still yet to state when the Xbox One will be arriving.

EA COO Peter Moore for one is eager to know just when it will be launching, especially since this marks the first time that competing consoles have released so close together. Speaking to Games Industry International, Moore stated that, “It has never happened this way. There’s always been a period of time, a sorbet between consoles, that has cleansed the palate and allowed us to move on. It might be a week, who knows? Microsoft needs to cough up the date.”

While the PS4 is confirmed for November 15th in the United States and November 29th in Europe, the Xbox One has seen several rumoured release dates such as November 8th, November 22nd and November 27th – all from different sources. Will it be ballsy and just release it on the same day as the PS4? That would be one battle for the ages.

    November 22. they’ll release right between to US and EU PS4 dates to make consumers choose Xbox One. They released Xbox 360 on that same day eight years ago…it’s most likely the case; probably haven’t confirmed it yet since it’d be called a marketing stunt by the media after all the reversals they’ve done so far… so later maybe next month probably at TGS or in early October they will reveal confirm the date when they presume the public possibly forgets all that has happened with Xbox One by then. Maybe since MS is also going under corporate restructure with Ballmer retiring within the next 12 months or so….the release date has yet to be decided since they don’t even know if the Xbox division will still belong to Microsoft by then, so it looks like we will either see a delay in release for sometime in 2014 or we’ll just be told at a later date like I said before since MS is in hell right now for anything else to take priority at the moment. Anyone have thoughts on that?
