We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
22 november the Xbox ONE will be launched in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom, United States and New Zealand. And not in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland.
Microsoft will make less profit than expected because of the late delivery in the countries where the Xbox are launching in 2014. What is your opinion? Please comment
I think they are not releasing the Xbox one in tier 2 country's because they are wanting to flood the tier 1 ones, it's good business sense.
I do not think they will lose any money at all because the same amount of consoles will be made and sold weather they are sold in all country's or not, they are still making the same amount of consoles but they are only going to the 13 country's and they
will all be sold out release day.
Sony just announced they wont even launch their console in Japan until 2014.
And neither will Microsoft. That leaves the door wide open for Nintendo and their Wii U!!! Oh... hang on... never mind. Simply put Japan isn't the battle ground for either Microsoft or Sony, and because of this it's there turn to get shafted. I would feel
sorry for them, but given I live n the EU and since I was a kid I've been forced to wait far longer than seemed reasonable for Japanese based consoles... part of me is smiling. I believe the Germans refer to it as schadenfreude.
