Official: Xbox One in only 13 markets in '13

Our priority is ensuring our customers get the best Xbox One experience the first day it is available. To do that, and in order to meet demand, we have adjusted the number of markets that will receive Xbox One in November to 13 markets, including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom, United States and New Zealand, in November.

We remain committed to launching Xbox One in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, as soon as possible in 2014.

Well played, Microsoft.

This must be a joke. They should be expanding their launch countries, to atleast the same amount as the 360, not decrease them. SONY will have a huge advantage in those european countries which Microsoft deemed not worthy of the glorious XBOX ONE.

D-bag electronics company 101: Make it seem like your console is in higher demand than it is.

I think they pulled this move with the Zune, as well.

It's time for non-funny meme's. My meme's are about facts, not humour. I was originally going to do a funny one, but I thought I might as well do a 180 too.

You say you like facts yet the "barely anyone pre-orders" part is false.

They should really change the name to Xbox 180. It fits more with the console than one does.

He's correct, it isn't funny.

All great companies and even people make mistakes.

Sony got the same backlash when the PSN was hacked and how many days did it take for them to tell you?

Leave the childish memes at the door, or better yet, stay out the X1 thread. Thanks. icon14.gif

^Going to guess he's a developer of sorts. Or a master thief working in conjunction with the well known hamburglar, utilizing the latter's experience in burglarizing to nab an Xbox One, in exchange for, you guessed it, circular patties of minced beef.

Someone at Microsoft or a Microsoft Studio, Major Nelson and that Spencer guy have stated they have theirs at home, so I can see why some other high up has one as well.

Alright we get that you don't like Xbox anymore. Now get lost.

I reckon the person who took the picture works for Microsoft and has took home a console. Reminds me of this:

5 lights on the Kinect, plus one on the console, and another on the controller? Is this to distract us from the game? Why so many lights?

Might be the camera picking up the infrared(s). It would be really freakin' odd if they had like 5 lights on the kinect.

truthfact1+
No Live Stream at Gamescom for "real reasons." Xbox 1 architecture not fully complete. Latest version of SDK from a couple of weeks ago dropped performance by 15-20% across the board. He says this thing happens all the time as a part of console develoment, and will eventually get fixed. But there is NO chance of early October release...

truthfac2+
Certainly not for 21 countries. As we know they already dropped down to 13 countries. The "localization" excuse is bullsh*t. Period. "TRUTHFACT." It's an excuse nobody with common sense would consider. If you cross reference against the languages spoken, and official and other languages is said country. He said yield issues 2 months ago and the "chicks have come home to roost." I'm not sure what the next part says... "Knock ons for launch title" 1 smart glass etc. Instead of 180's coherent vision? They are paying the price now?

trythfact3+
Late October Launch is set for PS4. Sony's SDK is fully ready, and you can basically "master2 final right now. Today." Not sure what that means, but sounds like the console is basically ready.

truthfacte+4
FYI, though people were mad about Bayonetta going exclusive to Wii U, you'll be somewhat unhappy about what MS is moneyhatting with Platinum. Other Japanese devs are "in play" too, but Kamiya is the only 1 he's 100% sure about. The game is not for North America or Europe, which doesn't make sense.

truthsfact$5
Big Park cancelled a game. It was a MOBA. 100% Dead. The whole studio is now focusing on TV services. All the best talent went to Big Tusk or left MS entirely. Rare is still Kinect focused, regardless of what you guys may have heard.

truthfact6
New Indie publishing policy is not yet set. It will be post launch.

trutgh fact*#7:
Early September surprise.
Apologize in advanced. Everything I saw over the last 24 months was no chance of Kinectless SKU. It was solid and concrete info.

Well, about that...

Whispers of optional Kinect (not in Box, SKU happening early next year).
Enough smoke now to point out the fire before the announcement in September.


Sorry, could not quote because I'm on mobile.

The photo is likely from a market-research test subject. MS has probably sent out the Xbox and a few of their primary titles for at-home testing. So much for an almost-certain NDA agreement.

If that's true, that's a lot of money Microsoft must be paying EA. Like.. a LOT. Considering that EA were upping their prices for next gen games in Europe (where they sell the most copies of FIFA). I still am not going to buy it though, PS4 with FIFA 14 is still cheaper lol.gif but if you were planning on getting an Xbox, this is great news for football fans.

Europeans prefer PlayStation as far as I'm aware. Not to mention that most European countries won't be getting Xbone's at launch. They'll have to import it. It's also still cheaper to get a PS4 and FIFA, so I really don't understand what the f*ck is Microsoft thinking throwing money at EA for no reason.

I'm sorry for double post but this deserves attention.

http://www.theguardi...t-gamescom-2013

So, Microsoft is planning to return the "advantages", as they call them, that they removed from Xbone. Things like having to check in once every 24 hours. It's a part of their "vision" and sooner or later they will be introducing them to Xbone.

Good to know. I was starting to think that I might get this somewhere along the line. Nice of them to tell me upfront not to waste money on them.
