Ever since the next-generation consoles were announced, people and companies across the US have been trying to guess their release dates. There has been no official confirmation about the release date for either console, but some pretty big names are starting to list exact dates for release, a phenomena which is capturing the attention of the gaming world.

Last week, the huge European retailer Media Markt listed that the PlayStation 4 would be released on November 13th. Media Markt is one of the largest retailers in Europe, so this listing is calling up a lot of attention. The same goes for the posting of the Xbox One release date by Amazon, who claims that the console will release on November 27th, which is the Wednesday right before Thanksgiving and, more importantly to Microsoft, Black Friday.

Both of these dates fall in the companies’ given timelines (the ever-ambiguous Fall and Winter seasons), but they are far from officially confirmed. It seems like a two-week wait for Microsoft after the release of the PlayStation 4 would be odd, but these could nevertheless be the real dates. We will just have to wait and see in the coming months.

What do you think? Do you want these consoles to release sooner as opposed to later? Or are you going to sit this generation out for awhile?

Our Verdict

Noah Cherry
My first gaming memory is watching my older brother play Donkey Kong 64 and staring at the screen in amazement. From that point on I wanted in on the fun, and it drove me to become a gamer and took me to where I am today. I am very passionate about gaming and love the opportunity I have here to use my writing skills and combine them with this passion. Nintendo has my heart, but I expand onto all platforms, owning many gaming consoles and playing a wide variety of games. My favorite game of all time is Super Mario 64, with Okami coming in as a close second. Kingdom Hearts is probably my favorite overall series of games, and Wind Waker is my favorite Zelda game, although I believe Ocarina of Time to be the "best" one. I also loved Spirit Tracks. Aside from gaming, I am a student and heavily participate in Choir programs. I also participate in musicals from time to time, whether it be through stage crew or acting. For those concerned, I am a cat person, not a dog person.
