Xbox One Release Date is November.. 8th?


Sledgstone

It is still unconfirmed for now, but all indications point to a November 8th release date for the new Xbox One console. There are some marketing company images going around the internet showing November 8th as the release date. If its true, then the Xbox One will release a full week earlier than the PS4. After checking Xbox's official site, it appears that November is the confirmed month, but no exact date is mentioned.

I was waiting for this. They were waiting for Sony to announce their release date so they could try to one up them on the day. Now the pressing question: Is this why MS delayed consoles in all other markets just to allocate what they have to the North American Market? Are they banking that Sony will run out fast and they will still have a NA supply, or are they bulking up so they can make it all week without running out before PS4 comes out. Its a dangerous move if its the latter... If they run out and then PS4 comes out, People will likely give their money to Sony if they have to wait until after Christmas to get an X1... especially the Christmas shoppers buying for their kids.

 

Further more, If Xbox releases before PS4, I'm sure this will piss off everyone in the markets where it was delayed. Who knows how they will react to an American company discriminating against their markets to favor their own.

I was talking to my brother about this possibility yesterday and he made a very valid point.. He thinks the Xbox One will sell out completely. Every available unit will sell. His reasoning is that because MS took off the region lock, everyone will buy the Xbox One and ebay the hell out of them to all those people in the delayed countries. As long as the people in those countries have the right power adapters, they can get an xbox one far earlier than whatever release date Microsoft has planned. And because there were plenty of countries in that delay list that speak english, I'd have to agree with him.. I think the Xbox will sell out. But its not going to go the way MS wants it.. the market will be deprived of Xbox Ones and the people profiting will be the ebay sellers marking up the price to whatever they can sell it for.

I'm guessing they were going to have a supply issue, so to cover their asses they're delaying the release in other countries to make sure their supply doesn't run out. It happened when the PS3 came out.. nobody could buy one because they couldn't build them fast enough. If anything it caused more people to buy the Xbox 360.. that availability and lower price helped Xbox get an advantage over PS3. But now the tables are turned and MS is having more PR issues.

 

Localization issues could be plausible.. different countries with different languages and the Kinect's voice recognition probably needs some fine tuning.. but if thats the case, then it makes me think they were not ready to release the system altogether. Maybe if MS didn't make all those numerous changes since their first reveal, this wouldn't be an issue for them.

      Black friday sales started early so I bought a 4k HDR 50 inch samsung tv. I'm pleased with it. The blacks this tv gets still blows my mind. I doubt I'll buy a PS4pro, but in the mean time my regular PS4 has HDR.. but I only have one game that actually takes advantage of it and thats Uncharted 4. I don't think I'll be replaying it any time soon just to see the graphical difference, but regardless this tv upscales like a champ. Everything looks significantly better. Thats a hell of a lot better upscaling than blu ray players do for dvds. Its a night and day difference.
      I put on Rise of the Tomb Raider last night and Battlefield 1 and the quality is top notch. Game mode works with HDR for this tv, so I can put on game mode for reduced input lag which is nice without affecting quality. It also has bitstream audio pass through which works great with my old receiver for surround sound.
      The tv has Motion rate 120 instead of true 120 hz refresh rate which I didn't know was a different thing when I was buying the tv. But thats ok, I doubt the PS5 when it eventually comes out will even come close to 60 fps at 4k and my current pc graphics card will no way in hell do any better than 60 fps at 4k so I'm pretty much set for future proofing at the moment.. at least for the next 4-5 years probably. And motion rate 120 is a bit nuts. I had to turn the judder down on that. It makes everything so fluid its like everything was filmed like a soap opera.  I never realized more fps on a movie would look so different.  But the biggest downside is for animated titles. It cause a bit too much of a blur effect as the tv basically fills in the games to increase the fps.. its not good for animated shows.

      Sigh, I actually had to break down and get a FunimationNow account because half the shows I was planning on watching on CR got pulled yesterday (and I didn't actually realize Funi had the license). Going to go broke if this shit keeps happening >.<

      I still haven't had the time to play any of the GW2 halloween event and it ends tomorrow. but i did get the new entrance to my deck completed. I cut a good chunk of the wood fence off, reinforced it with pieces of 2x4, sanded it and reinforced adjacent parts of the deck with huge deck screws. I borrowed my friend's impact driver. Holy crap I need to buy one of these. That thing is beastly and amazing.

      Red Dead Redemption 2 is a testament to what single player games can be when you spend years developing them rather than 1-2 years and throw them out there with endless sequels. It would take me a few hours to hammer out my initial thoughts on this game. The level of detail is truly spectacular. My one concern was having to juggle all the health/stamina and weapon maintenance, but somehow Rockstar made it very uncumbersome to where its there, but you don't really have to worry about it every few minutes... I've gone hours without having to rest or use consumables. I've found myself getting lost in just tracking/hunting for hours. The amount of random side content is astonishing. After I get off work tomorrow, I'll have a whole week to dive into it and get lost. I'm really looking forward to it.
