Microsoft and Sony both announced their next generation consoles months ago, but neither company plans to launch their new platform before the fourth quarter. Neither Sony nor Microsoft has been particularly forth coming in terms of a release date, but we do know that the consoles will be available in time for the all important holiday shopping period.
Does that mean October? November? Early December? Thanks to Toys R Us in the United Kingdom, we have a better idea of when these consoles will hit stores. TechRadar reports that the retailer's website currently lists a November 29 ship date for the Xbox One and a December 13 delivery date for the PlayStation 4.
Since Microsoft and Sony are keeping quiet about a release date, and Toys R Us has warned that these dates are subject to change, there's a good change that the aforementioned dates are an educated guess on the retailer's part. That said, they're awfully specific dates. We'll keep you posted on any developments on this.
