xbox one will miss launch date

Postby brett1 » Wed Aug 14, 2013 7:59 pm

Microsoft has announced that Xbox One will miss its November 2013 release in eight of the previously announced 21 launch markets - that's Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden and Switzerland.

"This was an aggressive goal and the team has been working very hard to deliver Xbox One to as many markets as possible," Microsoft PR chap Major Nelson wrote in an Xbox NewsWire post.

"Our priority is ensuring our customers get the best Xbox One experience the first day it is available," he continued. "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.

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

The delay doesn't appear to have anything to do with manufacturing enough consoles. "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.

"We understand this will be disappointing news for our fans in the impacted countries, and we are doing everything we can to bring Xbox One to you as soon as possible next year."

There's a splash of good news if you're among those affected, however - Microsoft will compensate pre-ordering consumers with a free game. "If you are in these markets and have questions about your pre-order, please contact the local retailer where you placed your pre-order. To show our appreciation for your patience, if you have already preordered an Xbox One Day One system before today in those countries, you will also receive a pack-in game with your console when it launches."

Fifa hasn't changed dramatically over the years grahpically or in auto and this one seems no different...

The hype of this gen just hasn't drawn me at all I am sure I'm not the only one either, sony are an entertainment Company so they have no need to market that angle but M$ understands that the gaming aspect on Xbox one will not be very dissembler to earlier Xbox 360, so they need that entertainment angle to warrant people forking out for an upgrade...
