Over the weekend it would seem that Amazon posted the ship date for the Xbox One, a previously unknown piece of information. Unfortunately, it turns out that this date, which is listed as November 27th, is merely a placeholder, at least according to Amazon. And while I’d usually attribute this to Amazon (and Microsoft) trying to cover their tracks, I have to agree. Why?
Well, first off, November 27th is awfully late in the year for holiday shopping. Second, Call of Duty Ghosts is set to be shipping on November 5th for all consoles. Moreover, a leaked poster emerged today pointing to a November 13th release date for the PS4. So if Microsoft wants to stay competitive, which they clearly do, then they’ll need to start selling their box in early to mid (latest) November.
