Release dates for the upcoming Xbox One and PS4 next-gen consoles have been leaked by ToysRUs.

That's exactly two weeks before ToysRUs says the Xbox One's main rival will go on sale. It says the Sony PS4 will arrive on 13 December.

The firm does, however, have a warning which reads: "Please note: If the release date changes we will contact you to keep you updated."

Needless to say, neither Microsoft nor Sony have commented on the release dates so official status is yet to be reached.
