(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – We may now have more insight regarding the release dates for both the PS4 and Xbox One. According to a report from BT Games on Monday, toy retailer Toys”R”Us initially appeared to confirm that in the UK, the Xbox One would be released on November 29th while the PS4 would launch December 13th.
However, after initially confirming the info, the company later contacted BT to pull a switcheroo. “Please accept my sincerest apologies for the incorrect information you were given yesterday regarding the Xbox One and Playstation 4 Console official release dates,” stated a representative from Toys”R”Us.
The statement continued, “The release dates are not provided by either Microsoft or Sony, but are an estimated date and are required by our system to allow us to take pre-orders. Once the correct launch dates are officially provided we will update our web site and contact any customers who have ordered.”
Both Sony and Microsoft, meanwhile, confirmed in separate statements that they had yet to set a confirm release date for their competing consoles.
Last month, Wal-Mart noted via its website that the PS4 would “ship free on release date this November.” Websites, however, commonly use placeholder text in place of still-unconfirmed info.
