Xbox One Voice Commands will be available in 5 countries at launch

Microsoft has revealed in very fine print that only 5 countries will be having Xbox One Kinect voice commands when the console comes out later this year. There are 13 launch countries and here’s a full list of them.

In the official Xbox page, if you look closely below at point 6, it reads: “Xbox voice commands will not be available in all markets on the product release date. Voice commands will be available at launch in US, UK, CA, FR, and DE.”

The countries are United States, United Kingdom, Canada, France and Germany. These countries also seem to be the main markets for Microsoft, and the Xbox 360 particularly has done extremely well in the US and UK.

We will keep you updated once we hear more on this. Tell us what you think in the comments section below.

Thanks, GAF.

    so those 5 countries only translate to 3 seperate languages…not many multilingual microsoft employees? Seems like something they would want to get deeper into before launch…also, how well will the system work w/ different dialects and terms, i.e. the us and uk? I’m personally looking forward to seeing how all of these features work after launch, if history is anything to go by, it might be fairly poorly
