Xbox One releasing November 8th according to leaked email


Xbox One might be heading for a launch on November 8th, according to a leaked email from a source close to large US retailer, Walmart.

The unconfirmed reports come from an email sent to US gaming blog, Kotaku, by an someone who works at the marketing company responsible for Walmart signage and product placement.

The November 8th date from the email was mentioned during a company conference call with the retailer, which is intended to cover all of Walmart’s planned midnight openings for Xbox One’s launch.

Would make sense beating PS4 by a week, especially if they launch in the UK at the same time on the 8th.

I hope this is true for the UK too. Knowing our luck probably not though.

I could live with this if it means I get mines sooner the better. Also note that its the only one that is not confirmed so will wait and see.

I doubt it, but I guess MS are desperate enough to shoot for even a small PR "win" like a week early launch. It won't matter a jot if it happens though, considering both Xbone and PS4 are going to be struggling to meet demand at least through 2013 you're not going to be seeing either machine actually on store shelves this year, so whoever launches first is somewhat irrelevant at this point.

The only thing that is going to make a difference is the games that come out for them eventually.

You will most likely be able to pick one up still from the shops on the day, and when they do sell out they will probably have the 2nd batch ready back in stock before Christmas, doubt you will be waiting till 2014 if you miss the release day.

This would be good if true. I hope it's not going to be like PS4 though where they release in America on one day and then in UK like 2 weeks later. Since XBO is launching in less countries, i'd love for it to release in all of them on the same day :)

They probably will launch on the same day, that would give them a real boost in the UK as we'd be getting Xbox 3 weeks before PS4 here. That's probably why they held back some of the countries to focus on their main areas for a same day launch.

@Whitey It have been confirm sometime ago, that the reason Microsoft cut 8 Countries was to be able to sell more Xbone in US

I must say I am hoping for a same day launch as well as it being the beginning of November, the sooner I get it the better I paid for my xbox and PS4 the other day so just games I need to worry about.

Kotaku have retracted their story and are now saying it definitely won't be launching November 8th. Cannot say I am surprised.
