Xbox One will not release locally this year

0 second read

So we’ve just heard that Microsoft is releasing the Xbox One in 21 countries this year and unfortunately we are not one of them.

It’s been confirmed that we are a wave 4 release which means we will definitely not see the Xbox One this year and likely will only be getting it in Q2 of 2014.

This is a massive disappointment for us and yet again more proof that Microsoft does not view the emerging market as key to their future.

We still have to see what Sony has to say but right now I don’t see how Microsoft has any chance of stealing South Africa back from Sony.
