A source close to Walmart claims the console will come out a week prior to PS4 in the US.
A source close to Walmart, a United States retailer, apparently leaked an email to Kotaku regarding the Xbox One’s release date being on November 8th. The source apparently works at a marketing company that works on creating signs and product placement for Walmart, with the release date being detailed in a company conference call regarding midnight openings planned across all retail stores for the console’s launch.
Of course, there’s no confirmation from Microsoft as usual. For its part, Amazon had a placeholder release date for most first party launch titles as being on November 27th, indicating that the Xbox One would release on the same date. Microsoft has only specified that the console will launch in November.
Sony’s PlayStation 4 will be launching on November 15th in North America, meanwhile, and on November 29th in Europe. Does November 8th make sense for Microsoft, given that one of its bigger titles – Call of Duty: Ghosts – will be releasing just a few days earlier on November 5th? Regardless, take this with a grain of salt, as usual.
