Boxed Windows 8 Copies on Sale Before Official Debut

Microsoft announced a few days ago the pricing for the new Windows 8 operating system, but the company said that all copies would be delivered after the official debut on October 25.

A Walmart store however is already selling boxed copies of Windows 8, according to a The Verge report citing reader Aaron. While the Windows 8 Pro retail box can also be seen in the photo, the reader told the source that local Walmart employees claimed all copies are for sale, even if the store isn’t promoting them yet.

We’re not sure whether this is an embargo breach or Walmart is indeed allowed to sell the Windows 8 Pro upgrades, but we’ve contacted Microsoft for an official statement on this and we’ll get back when we hear from them.
