Xbox One Launching in 28 Countries This Month
Territories like Japan, India, China, etc. will finally receive the console.
With several high profile exclusives like Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark and Halo: The Master Chief Collection incoming – not to mention Bungie’s Destiny releasing on September 9th – Microsoft has announced a release schedule for the Xbox One in 28 new territories.
These include Chile and Colombia (September 2nd); Japan (September 4th); Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and UAE (September 5th); Israel (September 15th); Hong Kong, India, Korea, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan, China (September 23rd); and Russia (September 26th). The Japan launch will be most interesting since Microsoft has seen little success with the Xbox 360 in the country.
Meanwhile in India, the console will retail through Amazon.in with the console itself costing Rs. 39,990 and bundling FIFA 15 for free. There will also be a console and Kinect bundle with FIFA 15 and Dance Central Spotlight DLC included for Rs. 45,990. Thoughts? Let us know in the comments.
