When do you think the Xbox One will go on sale? [POLL]

xbox one price november-580-75

Back at E3, Microsoft revealed the Xbox One will be available sometime in November for $500. Since then retailers have been taking pre-orders, but Redmond has yet to come forward with an actual release date for its new console.

There are 30 days in the month of November and one of them is a major US holiday (Thanksgiving), which is followed by Black Friday, the biggest day for retail in the country. Typically major products aren’t released on these particular days, so it’s pretty safe to assume that the Xbox One won’t drop on either of the two.

Aside from that, it’s a bit of a toss up, which is why we want to know your thoughts. We’ve went ahead and picked two highly rumored dates for you to vote for, but option three is all up to you.

    Not sure, but it seems that Toys R Us UK has some specific shipping
    dates.

      I believe they’re place holders. I wouldn’t count on them.

      • HyperionLight

        Yeah, but I have to wonder… how exactly did they pick those dates?

        Or did they just go

        “Jim pick two dates, one in November and one in December”

        • bizzy gie

          Ha! Ha! I think the second. November is when Xbox releases. December is the official holiday month.

          • HyperionLight

            Um… I meant two dates because there are two different consoles, but yeah MS usually releases consoles in November.

          • bizzy gie

            I know. I meant your second speculation which was that they picked random dates for each console.

        • sd

          My assumption for the UK date of 13th Dec is that it is the last postal date for christmas if you order the console online, anything ordered after this time will not arrive in time. The Xbox One is the last business day in November so that would explain this date. Personally I say 22nd November for Xbox One, although the sooner the better. Maybe the 6th December for the PS4.

      November 29th for the Xbox one is the last Business day of the month, Amazon did the same thing. except they put it before thanksgiving. November 29th is Black Friday in the US. Their is literately not a chance in blue hell that it will come out that day.

      The PS4, no clue why they picked the middle of december.

      • HyperionLight

        Yeah I was just thinking that – in regards to the Black Friday – I know
        those are place holders, but how do they come up with them?

        Well it looks like another mystery that only the great detective Ige Yibzz can solve!

        *Suspenseful music playing in the background*

        • Arthur Hughes

          Xbox one is because they would have to ship it on the 29th since most businesses do not ship on saturday. So they just put the last possible ship date

          • HyperionLight

            Indeed.

            Anyway didn’t they (MS) say they would reveal the release date “later this summer”…so Gamescom?

          • Arthur Hughes

            I would think theirs a better then 50% chance of it. Most people consider September a fall month (even tho most of it is technically summer) I would think they would announce it their or shortly after

          • bluSPECTRE

            I’m almost positive they’ll reveal it at Gamescom.

      • misterhearn

        Amazon is showing December 31st for the PS4. Just a placeholder to match Sony saying the system will launch this year.

        • Arthur Hughes

          The link he has posted is showing Dec 13th on the uk site. It’s an odd date for a placeholder

          • sd

            I think this would be the last postage date to receive the console by christmas. That is if you ordered via internet shopping. Of course this is just a guess as to why they would choose this date.

    November 22

  • RECKLESSgoat

    I WANT IT NOW xD

    • Ducked

      You want it now? I know, all of the people on Xbox One daily will sneak in Microsoft HQ and snatch one!

      • RECKLESSgoat

        I wanna sneak in thier HQ and snatch one, thats a great idea xD

  • The Unknown Legacy

    November 16th

  • Vincent M. Lenzi

    Nov. 13th

  • Ducked

    November 10th

  • Arthur Hughes

    The 12th would be the coolest day for release, 11-12-13 If you remember Dreamcast released on 9-9-99 Wont forget that release date.

    • bluSPECTRE

      And the 12th is on a Tuesday, so that could totally happen.

    • Ducked

      What? That would be a curse xD

      • Arthur Hughes

        dreamcast didnt actually sell all to badly. The new head of sega didnt want to be in the console market anymore and just focus on software.

        • Ducked

          True.

    • sd

      Or 1-11-13 . All the ones represent the x one, the three could represent the third console.

  • Morris ヅ

    5th nov

  • bluSPECTRE

    I’m thinking November 5th. :D
