Xbox One will reach Japan and the rest of Europe in September 2014
More details to come later in April; Microsoft adds that Titanfall launch helped Xbox One post record Xbox Live numbers.
Microsoft has announced that it will release the Xbox One in 26 new regions in September 2014, including Japan and many of the European territories yet to see the machine.
More details about the availability of the console in these regions will be available towards the end of April, Microsoft adds. Presumably this will include pricing and specific dates.
"You’re spending an average of over five hours per day on Xbox One," said Microsoft corporate vice president Yusuf Mehdi, which does seem to be a bit of a weird thing to say in an announcement aimed at 26 countries where the Xbox One is not currently available.
"Last week we saw the highest number of hours logged on Xbox Live since the launch of Xbox One," Mehdi added.
These are the 26 regions that will be getting Xbox One in September in 2014:
- Czech Republic
- Saudi Arabia
- South Africa
