I was surprised just a moment ago to find an email in my inbox from Microsoft announcing the release date for the Xbox One. I was even more surprised by the date itself. The Xbox One will get released on Friday, November 22nd. There was a lot of speculation leading up to this that the Xbox One would get released the same day as the new Call of Duty: Ghosts which gets released on November 5th.
This also means that the PS4 has a one week advantage over the Xbox One. In the grand scheme of things this probably doesn’t mean much because getting a system on Day One for both systems will be hard if you aren’t pre-ordering. Microsoft is still taking pre-Orders for their Day One Editions of the console on their website.
