Microsoft to launch Xbox One in fewer markets

Microsoft has announced it will ship the Xbox One to 13 markets when the new console launches this November, not the 21 markets the company boasted of at E3 in June. “This was an aggressive goal and the team has been working very hard to deliver Xbox One to as many markets as possible,” said the statement on Xbox Wire today.

So who are the lucky 13? Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom, United States and New Zealand.

The parade of disappointed nations include Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and Switzerland. They’ll have to wait a little bit—“as soon as possible in 2014” according to¬†Microsoft.

“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.”

Microsoft says gamers in the eight affected countries who had already pre-ordered an Xbox One Day One system will receive a pack-in game with their console when it launches.
