  1. Microsoft’s Xbox One will be released on November 22, a full week before Sony’s PlayStation 4 hits retail in most regions. The one exception is in North America where the PlayStation 4 is slated to launch on November 15.

    I can certainly appreciate that Microsoft wants to stick with tradition, but I think with Microsoft's missteps (not to mention its higher price) I think it would have been more prudent to release it earlier than Sony just to get a good jump on them.

    Regardless, my November is set. My Xbox One is nearly paid off and I'm buying the PS4 at full cost.

    "Yusuf Mehdi, Xbox?s marketing vice president, said the Xbox One is the culmination of many years of listening to Xbox fans"

    November 22 is reasonable.

    "Yusuf Mehdi, Xbox?s marketing vice president, said the Xbox One is the culmination of many years of listening to Xbox fans,"

    This can't be true, no way did Xbox fans ask for a higher price, DRM Riddled, Kinect bound, almost forced Subscription, under-spec'ed machine? No way in hell did they. Either that or when they say "Xbox fans" they really mean "ourselves".

    Yeah, just like Windows 8 was the culmination of many years of listening to Windows fans. That guy should be a car salesman. He's full of bologna.

    Microsoft only cared about their bottom line, that's why the company did a 180 and removed those features for their new console. People should know that through patches, Microsoft can enable them again because the hardware already supports it.
