It seems that both the Xbox One and PS4 will be released in the UK in time for Christmas, if release-dates leaked by retailer Toys’R’Us are to be believed.
The release date for Microsoft’s latest console was listed as November 29th with Sony’s offering arriving just after on December 13th.
A spokesperson from the toy chain spoke to BT and confirmed the dates, saying “I can confirm this information has been given direct from our suppliers and is accurate.”
However, neither Microsoft nor Sony has confirmed these dates. Microsoft have responded only to say that they are definitely launching in November, and Sony have only confirmed that the PS4 will be arriving “this holiday season”.
In terms of pre-orders the PS4 seems to be leading the way, though Microsoft have reported selling out at retailers including Amazon and Gamestop.
Toys’R’Us are listing the price for the Xbox One as £419.99 and the PS4 as £339.99.
