US Retail Giant Suggests November 8th Launch for Xbox One

By Gary Cutlack on at

One of the few secrets left to be told about Xbox One may have been leaked by American supermarket chain Walmart, with an internal message about special events suggesting that teenage CoD fans might be queueing to buy their new consoles at midnight on November 8th.

Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean it'll arrive in the UK and that handful of other EU territories on the same day, but with public opinion seemingly favouring PS4, an early launch that gives it a week or two of an advantage over Sony's machine is one of the few weapons Microsoft has.

But, as anyone who bought a Sega Saturn in the summer of 1995 will tell you, early launches aren't necessarily a guarantee of success. [Kotaku]
