RUMOUR | Xbox One To Release On November 8th, Before PS4?

According to one of the biggest rumours of this year, Microsoft are set to pip Sony to the post by releasing the Xbox One on November 8th - a week before the PlayStation 4 launches Stateside.

The operative word here being "rumours." Since we're not discussing essential Fleetwood Mac albums, treat this story with an entire industrial vat of salt...

Kotaku, as they so often do, have lit the flames under this one. Apparently they received an internal retailer email from Walmart's marketing firm via an anonymous tipster, which clearly marks a November 8th midnight launch for Microsoft's entertainment system. You can view it here.

So, look, this could well be a pile of old cobblers. A hoax. A malicious piece of trolling. To be honest, that may be where the smart money is.

Or perhaps Microsoft may be set to pull off a spectacular manoeuvre. More as we hear it.

Is there any more info on the ghosts bundle they have announced for Europe? If they do a blinding offer on a bundle with ghosts+fifa, I'll be tempted to preorder the xbone (leaving my ps4 preorder on though..!)

MS are looking a lot more credible now than they did a couple of months ago.

Seems entirely plausible.

Though it's worth being in mind they announced people who buy the 360 version of cod could upgrade to the xb1 version for $10 when that console comes out - which lends the impression the console is out after cod.
