Thread: Xbox 361 revealed

They had said that it'll launch in Asia in 2014.
The 21 countries they're showing there are countries they intend to launch it this year and have it working with xbox live right
from the get go.
The map will most likely get updated when they launch Xbox One in other countries.

Yes, according to the Neogaf thread, select Asian markets (Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and India) will be able to buy the console in late 2014. That's a year from launch and still excludes quite a few countries. It's just weird. Why couldn't they just have established the infrastructure in advance if they're planning on launching in those markets anyway? They're giving the markets to Sony.

Probably because they're mental and seem to only care about the US and some Euros.

So nobody thinks it's weird that Sony isn't launching in Japan this year either?
13-06-2013, 12:11 PM #305
Sorry didn't notice that.
Yeah that's pretty weird of them. Any indication as to why they're doing it?

I know a few people in Japan and they are pretty pissed about it. I think Sony is TRYING to launch this year in Japan too, but they can't guarantee it whereas they are guaranteeing "holiday 2013" for EU/NA.
edit: I guess the upside is that it's region free, so they could import one if they are able. Although I do believe the bluray player part of it is still region locked, it's just games that are free. I'd imagine most people wanting a PS4 on day one already have a BD player or two though.

Xbone is coming earlier than PS4 in US and EU, right? Japan and other Asian countries will mostly like buy PS4 anyway, but if Sony would delay PS4 US and EU premiere they would lose huge piece of console market cake. So it isn't that wierd.

I don't think Sony have given a set release date other than Holiday 2013 for EU and US, so it's possible they could still release their system before Microsoft

I don't know, it's just weird.

Yeah, putting Asia (so Japan...) on a slight delay is definitely a smart move.
Also, it looks like demand for the PS4 is pretty good as I got an email from Amazon saying that they are still guaranteeing my pre-order for release date delivery, but they can no longer guarantee future ones. I am still surprised it didn't sell out though.Steam: Gundato
If you want me on either service, I suggest PMing me here first to let me know who you are.

Great, so CD Projekt may be the first developer/publisher to jump ship.
Witcher 3 may still be on Xbox but, great that we have a developer denouncing the DRM.
You are my hero!! Be courageous. Baby, give me a kiss~

Yes, you can.
But the bloody thing is still listening. And it's still processing everything you say to determine whether it's something it needs to pay attention to or not.

Actually, you can switch that off.

I imagine you switch it on with the controller, similar to how the 360 switches on.

At last, we can talk to the monsters and they shall listen."Reason is the madness of the strongest"
