Xbox one delayed until 2014!!!! In 8 markets!

Post by Willow on Thu Aug 15, 2013 7:16 am

No surprise really

Systems will be in shortage at launch so its best to concentrate on main markets, I'm sure Japan is also delayed until 2014 as well, but not 100 % about that!

thanks for rubbing it in guys! Sad 

im not impressed, this for me might be the final nail in my xbox next gen coffin.

i dont buy a console for the apps and the rest, i buy it to game on - i wouldnt have minded it going on sale without all the apps etc available and them being added later. its all so vague about when it will be released here.

i dont know whether buying one in the UK and then using it here will cause issues (i dont even use Dutch TV so that integration doesnt bother me in the least)??

I thought it wasn't, region locked so you could get one in the uk then use it there ? Surely any tv content will come with your account and not the console?

truth is at launch there is never enough systems to go round so someone looses. MS will concentrate on the big markets such as US and UK before others. In the end of the day they probably could have launched in those 8 country's but withl extremely limited stock!

I know what you mean Willow but New Zealand before the Benelux countries?

Also the demand thing is bollocks - any supplier of a product has an idea of what initial demand should be. It's not like they just decided to make it a week ago.

As for buying it in the UK then it's a possibility but adds the cost of travel to the price - more worryingly is how it will affect warranty. Sony NL messed me about saying I had to use Sony UK for a ps3 warranty claim. Also you do the initial set up via the Internet, will that cause issues later when using it here? Will it let me do it here instead of the UK? Will it recognise I have a Dutch account and refuse to allow set up until its released over here?

Questions Microsoft need to answer (they didn't reply to me so far)

does 360 sell more than in those other countries though?

reality is if you get a product from another country then you cant really expect them to support it. that would be common with all devices by any company I guess

yes it does take time to make these products, they are probably making units now. The thing is they would rather sell to countries that would sell out than to places where some stock may be left on a shelf, they would have a guess at pre-orders.

Technically MS could block your account if the system is not released in that country. So that would be a gamble, and if you complained all you would get is we don't support a product that is not officially released in the country yet.

Don't forget demand for XBO was poor when they had the DRM, so the probably thought they could do it, but after DRM removed demand went through the roof so that could also play a part. They can only make so many units

good news that Microsoft admitted you can buy one anywhere, possibly a reaction to the backlash?

i will pick one up in Germany or the UK cheers

ive been having a bit think about this and i still believe its demnd related.

MS say it is due to language issues etc, so how come every forum i read in Dutch is saying "we would rather play in english on release" and why not release the system in Belgium where a large part of the population are french speaking?

My main reason though is fairly simple - if its a language issue then they are working on it, if they are working on it then they should know an estimated time of completion for the project - so why no release date given? rumours here are it may be as late as april next year!

im stil in 2 minds as to what to do!

well i just checked my twitter and i received a reply from xbox NL regarding the release date here.

i sent them this:

@Xbox_NL so you didnt delay the release as much as cancelled it for now? (delay means you know when its available), great job guys

and they replied:

@GeordieSi76 Well, it will be available in 2014, we just haven't announced the exact date yet.


not really very informative and really only confirms what i wrote to them.....

deep breaths and count to 10 Sturm!

Just get yourself one from the UK if you can Sturm. Almost guaranteed to get it quicker that way!

I dont ses why anything would be wrong with that? The consoles not region locked so nothing should go wrong and no ban should be put on your console, unlike some in America now!

Pretty sure I read an interview with an MS exec and he did see you could import one. But can't remember what he said about compatibility.

For taht you have to be more informate dialy...
In the last friday 16/08/2013
In IGN questions MS they anunced some things...:
The reduction from 21 to 13 Countries in first launch window...
They anunced too based in free IP you can buy ONE from some region and use in 1 of 13 countries, the only condition is have a payment option works in the chose region.
And anunced you will receive a FREE "misterius" game whif each day one edition.
= You can buy in one region like for a sample England nad use in Netherlands whiout problems if you have a payment valid in England like paypal or international credit card for a sample.
I hope if i help you and forgive my bad english it´s self learnerd.

picked this up from the xbox forums mate. seems you can import but you would need a method that is used in one of the current live countries to pay for things such as your DLC and such. Paypal would be the easiest bet.

This explains it much better sturm and also gives you ideas how to get round the payment restrictions.

A couple of days ago, Microsoft announced that the Xbox One would be delayed in eight out of 21 markets — Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and Switzerland. While those regions should be familiar with getting shafted by the gaming industry since they aren’t the most major markets, this time around Microsoft has somewhat softened the blow. Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox One games will be region-free.

Region-free games means that if those territories can get their hands on an Xbox One at launch — likely through internet-based avenues — then they will not have an issue playing games in their home country. So, this time around, the shafting these regions will experience will likely be price-gouging and inflated shipping costs. If they put up with those unfortunate occurrences, then they can happily play Xbox One games.

While this is great news for those trapped in the unfortunate territories, there are still some drawbacks. Certain content procured through Xbox Live may not be available due to payment restrictions placed by the right holders. This means that if you live in one of the eight shafted territories, you would have to be able to provide payment through one of the methods used in the other 13 territories where the Xbox will be arriving on time. Restrictions also apply to certain services like Netflix or music platforms, as those may have individual policies separate from Microsoft.

There is a way around the payment method issue, though: pre-paid cards. If you purchased a pre-paid card from a market that Xbox Live does support, then the service wouldn’t know you’re making a purchase from a territory with payment restrictions.
The Xbox One will hit store shelves this November, and thanks to pre-paid cards and region-free games, regions that do not get a launch will be able to import and play games along with everyone else.

thanks lads, im looking into this at the moment as we can change the country we live in via xbox live ourselves. i still have a UK bank account etc so could swap it to say i live there (so i dont need to open a new live account in the UK).

we just had a bit of news over here anyway, myself and a lad i work with spoke to some local and national electrical/gaming stores and they are being advised no holidays are available at the start of February plus they are expecting deliveries of Xbox one to be shipped around late January.

we are guessing its a February the 1st release date due to this - seems more likely than the rumour that it would be 1st april - why release a console on April fools day?!?!?

well latest rumours put the release as being as late as quarter 4 this year!

I went back to the UK for new year, bumped into 3 guys in Schiphol airport carrying xbox ones as hand luggage and thought 'why not'.

so i bought it from Game's Teesside Park store and i have to say they were extremely helpful and gave me a bit of discount on the bundle. Plus they also chucked in a set of battlefield 4 dog tags.

im very very happy with it and switching the account to a UK one wasnt an issue for me as i have a bank account etc there still.
