Xbox 360 launching November 4th?

Xbox 360

It's not entirely clear where they scored this info, but is reporting that Microsoft is going to launch the Xbox 360 on November 4th. Certainly plausible, since we all know that Microsoft wants to spit this thing out in time to hit the holiday shopping period hard, but November 4th just happens to fall on a Friday this year, and from what we've seen most marketers are really reluctant to launch a major new product on a Friday.
