This week, gamers are understandably excited over the upcoming release of the PlayStation 4, which is just three short days away from being released on November 15. The upcoming launch of the PlayStation 4 may be taking a bit of the spotlight away from the Xbox One’s release next week, but Microsoft has been battling Sony’s hype train along the way. Earlier this week, Microsoft had announced their Xbox One launch games have gone gold and have started shipping to retailers.
Along with the news, Microsoft published some photos showing several Xbox One launch titles, including Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome and Zoo Tycoon, sitting on top of pallets filled with copies of that very game. The pallet is filled with boxes of the game that’s sitting on top of it, along with a piece of paper saying “DO NOT SELL BEFORE NOVEMBER 22, 2013.”
We guess we’ll just have to wait and see if retailers actually listen to this notice from Microsoft considering one retailer accidentally let a couple of Xbox Ones into the wild prior to their release date. Hopefully those who are able to secure copies of games as well as the Xbox One won’t receive the same treatment those customers received.
