    Why the PS4 will launch before the Xbox One

    http://www.craveonline.com/gaming/ar...e-the-xbox-one All speculation of course but the article does make some interesting points.

    Eh I think it's still too early to decide this. We don't really know how long each company has been in production so far.

    If it does it will be a matter of weeks anyway. But the sooner the better!

    Kind of hard to say. MS showed their production-ready machine in May and allowed Wired to tear it down. So, that means their production SKU was essentially locked in stone two months ago.



    Now, the PS4 production-ready unit is being sent out to game journalists and presumably many of Sony's devs.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0a6cjcB085s

    It will probably be awhile before the case is removed on the PS4, possibly at Gamescom. The problem with MS allowing Wired to tear down the XBone before going into production is that it exposes how much its a bog standard low-end PC. There is nothing innovative in the design, many of the passive components look dated and bulky. Even with a size that is 40% larger than the PS4, it's still going to need an external power brick. There is no way they are going to re-do the motherboard at this point. In some ways, the internal design of the XBone being essentially a very cheap PC is going to be an advantage for quick and cheap assembly. No doubt, both Sony and MS have some lines at least started up at this point, so looking at what has already been shown, it's going to be neck-and-neck, with the launch date finish line moving around.

    Well the articles basis for assumptions are fairly pointless. That said, they didn't even point out the more obvious reasons, which was that Sony started stockpiling materials for manufacturing before MS did (not sure if they have started on this portion yet.)

    That said I think the argument is a bit pointless if they come out w/i 1 mo of each other and at least by Black Friday then the sales domination is going to be based on popularity and not based on one came out a few weeks before the other. As sales for this time period is going to be Holiday sales.

    What will be more interesting to see is if one of the consoles sells more than their production capacity. And whether it's just production capacity limitations (It's been rumored Sony already increased capacity due to higher than expected Pre-orders) or issues in manufacturing (Rumors would indicate MS may be running into these.)

    Well, speculation keeps going back and forth between October and Early November.

    But, if these are true......
    then it'd be just over a week earlier?

    I think it's just too early for articles to be trying to say this is when it's gonna come out. we can speculate all we want but the truth is we don't know, we can hope for as soon as possible, but it's ultimately up to the companies.

    I'm not sure what the first to images are intended to portray regarding dates. The third one has been discussed on another thread. Most believe it's a tentative date at best, but also a Wed. release sounds a bit hinky. I think that week, may be a target date, and it would be a good target date. Get it out before Black Friday will help generate more early holiday buzz for those who are not necessarily the die-hards.

    I personally would like this, as I'd have it before Thanksgiving - which I'll be taking the week off for. That said, that would still give them an extra couple weeks to get it out before Black Friday.

    I could see Sony holding it a little bit to build up more inventory for launch (large launch numbers makes for free media - which is always good.) It will be a balancing act depending on Demand and Supply to meet the demand vs launching in a optimal window (i.e. pre-Black Friday.)

    They'll have a better idea of this by the time Gamescon (end of August) comes around and will most likely make a date formal then.

    I think they will only differ for a week or two tops, when it comes to them being released.

    I agree. Regardless of when they're released they won't release more than a week to two weeks apart IMO. Sony won't let Microsoft outdo them since they're already winning the battle so far; and Microsoft doesn't want Sony to beat them at something else this gen.

    The release dates of PS4 and X1 probable wont be too far from each other (could be fun if it was on the same day )

    The more important thing is who will be able to produce most units this year.

    I'm just assuming that the PS4 will try and surface before the One.

    Looks like you're 11 days older than me. One of the few on here that is older than I am

    I'd be very happy w/ a 11/13/13 release date. That said, as long as it's by my B-day (Sunday before Thanksgiving this year) I'll be happy as I'll be taking the full week off as usual. Only thing on my schedule for the week currently is to Fry a couple Turkey's.

    I've been lurking here in the threads ever since the XBONE announcement. I've had both Xboxes so far... but the 360 will definitely be my last. Microsoft clearly doesn't get "IT" anymore... and it's time to move on.

    I'm excited for my first Sony console! Thank you all for being such an awesome community.

    Edit: And to clarify, I have one of the launch edition amazon orders! So excited!

    I think the PS4 and Xbox One will be launching in November probably within a week of each other but we'll see. It'll be fun to see how this gen plays out without the year head start that the 360 had on the PS3.
