    Wow. So no imports.

    What's the problem? Don't like international consumers, Microsoft?

    Why do I have the feeling that Microsoft isn't really prepared for their own console

    It could be that several countries don't support the DRM policies as well. Seems like a chunk of the EU is in grey.

    Wow this is unbelievable. That is messed up and seems like they want to alienate certain people from buying their system

    Edit: and why does the xboxsupport tweet always end with "^PC"?

    Thay have Azure serves in those countries.
    MS has already said they require the cloud serves to be "one hop" away from your location for latency sake.

    Make no bones..

    This is not a games console as we know it.

    Revolutionary or Retardant.... I guess history will tell us.

    Not convinced of that just yet.
    I know MS can make some drastically stupid moves but this goes beyond that.


    The reaction wasn't a surprise to Mehdi, though. In fact, he said a lot of the way people have responded to Microsoft's moves was "kind of as we expected." But the implication of his statements in an in-depth interview with Ars Technica was that this temporary confusion and discomfort among the audience would be worth it as gamers and consumers adjust to a console world without game discs.

    "We're trying to do something pretty big in terms of moving the industry forward for console gaming into the digital world. We believe the digital world is the future, and we believe digital is better."

    Funniest part is The Witcher 3, Polands great treasure and you can't even play it on Xbox One in Poland.

    No one discounts that (and it's not like Sony doesn't ahve DD) - it's just do you jump too early and go full retard and false start?

    Like mynd says, we'll see.

    Make no mistake the PS4 isn't a Wii where it can't go digital - they just chose not to alienate people - that being the main difference. If they wanted to, they can do it.

    You need a second job to afford it, a second house with better internet and for some a second country of residence to even be offered this experience.

    Digital may be the future, but it certainly isn't good for consumers when it comes to consoles.

    So those others can't import because there will be no activation servers and you can't set it up to another country?

    This is just a disaster... MS sort this out 0_0. No plans for Japan too? It doesn't even say in their asian launch next year that Japan will be included. wtf
