In the past few days, there have been rumors that the new Microsoft console could be released in early November. A retailer from Russia is currently providing fresh speculation in this direction, by leaking out the release date of the Xbox Series X Controller.
While Sony Interactive Entertainment is still keeping a low profile regarding the launch of the PlayStation 5, Microsoft has at least confirmed that the Xbox Series X will release in November this year.
The Redmond-based company has not yet gone into more detail, but several sources have reported in the past few days that the new generation Xbox will apparently go on sale in the first week of November. A retailer from Russia is currently providing fresh speculation in this direction.

The retailer recently added the Xbox Series X controller to its range and gave it November 6, 2020, as the release date. So it is obvious that this also applies to the Xbox Series X. However, it is currently unclear where the retailer got this information from.
According to the latest rumors, the Xbox Series X could indeed appear in the first week of November – more precisely on November 6, 2020. The PlayStation 5, however, should follow on November 13, 2020.
However, these rumors have not yet been officially confirmed. The same applies to speculation about the price of the new consoles, which, according to analysts, could amount to $399 to $499 US dollars, depending on the model.
As reported, the normal models of the two consoles are likely to $499, while the digital-only version of the PS5 and the Xbox Series S/Lockhart, which have not yet been officially announced, will offer players a more cost-effective entry into the new generation of consoles.
