Update: Sources close to Microsoft have confirmed with Kotaku that this date is not true. Additionally, the date was never confirmed with Walmart and could change.
According to Kotaku’s sources, someone involved in Walmart’s marketing team has just informed them that Xbox One is set to launch on November 8th according to an upcoming Walmart conference call.
The source, who works for a marketing company that handles signage and product placement for retail giant Walmart, passed along what they say is an email for a company conference call that lists all the midnight openings the chain has planned.
This is a rumor for now but it seems very likely if Microsoft wants to get the jump on Sony.
