Microsoft has confirmed the Xbox One launch markets and as we reported about a delay earlier for some European markets, it has been verified somewhat. Countries like Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland will be getting it in 2014.
These are the launch markets:
Here’s the reason why it is delayed in the European countries mentioned above.
While we wish we could launch Xbox One simultaneously in these markets, there are many factors that determine the timing of specific market launches. This includes work to localize the Xbox One dash, incorporate additional voice and languages, and build partnerships to bring apps and meaningful local content to each country.
It’s interesting to note that India gets the console in late 2014 while Brazil gets it this year. We will keep you updated once we hear more on this, stay tuned.
