PepsiCo has partnered with Microsoft to give away thousands of Xbox One consoles later this year through Mountain Dew and Dorito’s competitions, but in the Terms and Conditions of the prize draws it has inadvertently outed the Xbox One launch window as specific as “Late November” in the United States at least.
The exact quotes from Every2minutes.com (the official prize website):
Prizes won in the Sweepstakes and awarded by Auction will be shipped generally within 8-10 weeks from notification. Xbox One has targeted launch date of late November 2013; therefore, the initial shipments may be slightly delayed; please allow 12- 14 weeks for delivery.
If Microsoft are planning a “late November” launch in the US, it could be November 22nd which coincides with the Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs release date, a planned launch title for the Xbox One. This would put the US release a week later than Sony’s PlayStation 4 launch on November 15th stateside. If history repeats itself, a late November release could mean an early December release for the United Kingdom and Europe as per the original Xbox 360 launch. This also is in line with making sure that it catches the November payroll for the last wages before Christmas!
Or it could just release on November 22nd in every one of the intended launch countries. When Microsoft reveal the official launch date, we’ll keep you posted!
