Microsoft is set to reveal the release date of the new Xbox One. As Sony fans wait for the release of the PS4, Microsoft is also expected to announce their release also. The competition between these two companies is as fierce as ever, and Microsoft has upped its game by saying that they will release the console in 13 countries instead of the initial target of 21. Anyone who wants a console on the first day that they are released can follow the detailed instructions given by Microsoft.
According to Forbes, the Xbox One will have high end games, which are being called, “AAA” games. The countries that will get the consoles include United States, Brazil, Germany, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, Canada Austria, France, Ireland, Spain and Italy The game console will be later released in Finland, Denmark, Russia, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Belgium and Netherlands.
According to Microsoft, they would very much have liked to launch the Xbox One on the same day in all of these markets, but some factors have come up that have made it necessary to delay the Xbox One release date in some countries.
The factors include the localizing of the Xbox One Dash; add languages and new voices, and also include applications that will be meaningful to the country that is targeted.
According to Forbes, the company had made controversial changes in their policy and this could have occasioned the delay. It is possible to launch in as many markets as possible since the company is working out all the kinks in the system. Analysts say that the exclusion of many countries in Europe, where soccer is idolized, may cost them in the long term. In Europe, the game FIFA sells very well. If Microsoft is not careful, the way that they handle the launch will be disadvantageous and this will have them starting from a weak position right at the beginning.
Although Microsoft has not made any official statement, many people believe that the Xbox One will be launched in November. Game enthusiasts are anxiously waiting for Microsoft to break its silence on the release date for the console. The company will also continue to enhance the game playing experience, and is hoping that game developers can test the machine to the maximum, by producing exciting, high-end games. So, are you among the Gaming enthusiasts who are waiting eagerly for the Xbox One release date?
