Microsoft has officially said that the Xbox Series X will launch in November but failed to give a concrete release date. They shared this information along with the news that Halo Infinite has been delayed to 2021 and you can read more about it here. New information from The Verge’s Tom Warren reveals that the console will launch on November 6. Tom has taken to Twitter and says, “Xbox Series X may launch on November 6th. A tipster tells me boxes of the new controllers have a do not open date of November 6th on them”.
Xbox Series X may launch on November 6th. A tipster tells me boxes of the new controllers have a do not open date of November 6th on them. These controllers leaked earlier this week https://t.co/oyhlbg2SKo pic.twitter.com/dq096shN7L— Tom Warren (@tomwarren) August 11, 2020
So it looks like Microsoft has already started stocking the new controller with retailers with a "do not open till 6th November" date on them. Since one cannot see any Xbox branding behind the date sticker, we can take this leak with a pinch of salt, however, Tom has a good track record with the information he shares so it is quite believable.
The reason one can believe that retailers are stocking the new controller is that a customer managed to get his hands on a white next-gen white Xbox controller and posted pictures of it on Twitter. The box of the controller also highlighted compatibility with the unannounced Xbox Series S. The less powerful Xbox Series S has been leaked way too many times and can be considered one of Microsoft’s worst kept secrets. You can read more about the Series S here.
Sony, on the other hand, is yet to reveal the release date and price of the PS5 along with a teardown of the console. It looks like both Sony and Microsoft are waiting for the other to reveal the price first so that one can undercut the other. Until then, you can check out our comparison of the design of the PS5 vs the Xbox Series X here and a comparison of the specifications here.
