According to Amazon’s Xbox One listing, Microsoft’s third home console is launching November 27th.
This is, of course, wholly unverified. Microsoft has yet to announce a specific release date for the Xbox One. During their pre-E3 press conference last week, the company only offered a loose “November” release window. So yes—Xbox One is coming. Xbox One is coming sometime this November. As for the day, date, and time? Microsoft probably won’t mention that until GamesCom in August.
It’s worth noting, however, that the Xbox 360 launched on November 22, 2005, while the original Xbox hit store shelves November 15, 2001. So there is a precedent for Microsoft to release a new console mid- to late-November. But there’s also nothing in the world stopping them from changing it up a bit.
When reached for comment, a Microsoft spokesperson informed EGM: “We have not informed our retail partners about a specific launch date for the Xbox One. It is commonplace for retailers to put placeholders dates and prices into our system until they are given a specific date and price. We are excited to release the Xbox One in November 2013.”
