During the May presentation Matrix specifically stated that it's "gonna be available WORLDWIDE later this year". As always - lies, lies, lies.

i don't understand about the tv features on X1 , from what i've seen on x1 reveal  the tv channel that being shown are from the USA  ,  so if MS release X1 in the asia . the tv features will be useless

 Online broadband only DRM, you limit your markets M$. Of course, you also ensure those that do buy Xbone, will improve your profits 200 fold.

Releasing a $500 dollar American made console in Asia? Good luck with that one.

Asia conntries don't care about XBox One or any game console over $350. They only care about handheld game systems anyways. This is no big deal really. It will release in Asia market in 2014.

Well doesn't matter. Here in India, we have huge power outage's during the summer(once had a 14 hour outage) and the speeds are SLOW.  So not buying an XBone anyways.

So no XBOX ONE in India I guess. And with the crawling Internet speeds, I figure it won't be much sought after either !!!

M$ Please do yourself a favor and dont send this XBONE to ASIA. we don't have 24/7 internet service in ASIA. and WE dont watch TV and Sports 24/7 we have a life.

I think Asia will be fine with having to wait. I doubt most of them even know it exists.

@patosite As always. The poorest countries pay the most. Where's the logic in that?

@JDWolfie South Korea, Hong Kong, and Japan has the 3 fastest internet n the world. As for where I live in Asia yeah our Internet sucks we pay $40 for upto 2 mbps (normally its like 300 KBPS) but still enough to authenticate games I would think. Still most people in my country don't have internet ... even the folks I work with in the IT Industry do not have internet at home.

@blackace I live in Asia and Asian ... I have a PS3, Xbox 360 (2 sine the first RROD), and The Wii. I have many friends that have either an Xbox 360 or PS3 though more PS3's by a ratio of like 1 is to 10. So um no.

@Oozyrat That's what Microsoft means, excluding the Asian territories in their classification.

@_Perfectionist @IAMTYLERDURDEN A lot of countries can afford consoles and gaming in Asia especially upper -middle class and upper class.


The thing is that sales are quite less but If you combine all Asia(except Japan) they become a significant number
