possible xbox 1 release date leak from gamestop email

#1bmoreravenz24Posted 9/3/2013 6:41:26 PM
I received an email from gamestop stating bonuses I will receive with my preorder. Keep in mind I reserved the XBOX ONE version. One of the preorder perks is double XP NOVEMBER 8TH through the 11th. Why would I receive an email for the Xbox one reservation of COD ghosts advertising double XP weekend? Thoughts?

That's been mentioned before. It's more reasonable to read it as "the weekend after launch" than anything else. Marketing materials are weak with people guessing about releases. Mind you, the Doritos giveaway says that Xbox One launches in Late November.

If the X1 releases anytime after the 5th or the 8th then I will be deeply disappointed.

Given Microsoft's tight partnership with Doritos and Mountain Dew, I'd say they know best when it comes to the release date.
...Sad, isn't it?

Yes I agree. Just thought I would mention it to see what everyone might think. There has been November 8th rumors going on as of last week but then the Pepsi contest hints otherwise. I just wonder why I would get an email advertising double XP, even though I didn't preorder a current gen version, which would also be false advertising.

GameStop is good at false advertising. Just look at their new game selection.

Because releasing the X1 with CoD just seems like a logical business strategy that would push more units.

Activision might not like that though.
