Gamers who actively try to find every little industry whisper and rumor, irrespective of source or dubious nature, have already been worrying enough regarding a potential Xbox One X delay you fan reached off to Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer. Within a brief response, Spencer put those rumors and fears to relax.
“Rumours are spreading the Xbox one X has delayed till [sic] spring 2018,” tweeted one particularly concerned fan, “are you still focused for Nov 7th?”
Spencer shot over the concern and expressed his bullishness in regards to the 4K console hitting its planned launch date. “Still motivated for November 7th,” he tweeted. “Feeling good about this date.”
The Xbox One X is already releasing just days shy of your year after rival and market leader Sony launched a 4K console upgrade, the PlayStation 4 Pro, on November 10, 2016. Though Microsoft’s Xbox One X is objectively considerably more powerful compared to PlayStation 4 Pro, it often takes greater than raw power to win gaming system share of the market. Any delay would obviously be damaging to Microsoft at that point, nonetheless it feels like an example may be unlikely to take place.
Part with the internet hysteria comes from preorders still being unavailable for any console. The rationale Microsoft hasn’t opened reserves yet, according to its website, is usually that it’s still waiting on approval from various government bodies much like the United State’s Federal Communications Commission. Preorders cannot begin until approval is received, but fans will rest easier knowing Spencer seems unconcerned with this, or some other factor, producing a launch delay.
Microsoft first teased the Xbox One X as Project Scorpio in 2016 before formally announcing becoming Xbox One X at E3 recently. The Xbox One X is (still) scheduled to launch November 7 for $499.
