    Confirmed: XBOX One delayed in 8 markets until 2014

    There are rumors that Microsoft has changed their plans for Xbox One, and it significantly. According Gamereactors sources console will first be launched in the first quarter of 2014. In practice, it probably means the earliest in February, and probably only in March.

    About the causes are related to production, or whether it is due to the rumored upgrades of the console horsepower, history does not ngoet on. Nor do we know about the delay only applies to Europe or worldwide.

    Hopefully we'll get more on the matter at Gamescom next week.

    There is no way they would do this! I would be floored if it actually happened.

    I agree.

    But back in february I said that about MS and the drm and needing an internet connection to play.

    Another rumor. I hope it isn't true but it wouldn't really bother me if it did happen. This will give me a little time to catch up on some games for the 360 and PS3 that iv'e been meaning to play through.

    I actually think this would be a good thing although i'd be delaying it til next fall and then bringing out a much better console rather than one that's extremely similar to the PS4.

    I really don't see this one panning out. They would much rather have a limited launch than give the PS4 an unchallenged market dominance position. They also wouldn't be putting unboxing videos out with Major Nelson if they were not gearing up for launch. Now, I definitely see them not launching until 2014 in most countries, though.

    MS is ot just going to roll over for Sony in America and the UK at the very least.

    Missing out christmas sales will hurt a lot, if they delay the release. I really don't believe this.

    Hmmmm I could see a somewhat positive spin on this. A lot has changed with the X1 since it was first announced. Re-packaging their deployment and marketing for a new tentative launch date could help them regain a lot of lost momentum.

    Then on the downside you have the PS4 launch before you and steal market share.

    Most of the things that have changed have been software related and it really wouldn't affect the hardware aspect of things ... so I don't see that affecting their ability to release the console right alongside the PS4.

    I think missing out on Christmas sales would be a giant no no.

    It def. wouldn't be DOA, but it would surely be way behind the PS4.

    RUMOR: XBOX One delayed until 2014 #

    - Rumors that Xbox One launch is pushed back to 2014 started popping up
    - CVG Editor says they are not true and that the UK launch is still in november
    - Belgian website has confirmation from (retail) source that the release is indeed pushed back to 2014 (for Belgium at least, but also Holland and Scandinavian countries are named)
    - Delay is probably the result of translation issues for these specific countries
    Translation issues For real? Give it up ms it's over.

    They shouldn't delay. They should get their $#@! together, and get it released before Black Friday, 2013.

    This rumor is tooo far fetched.

    Wasn't the PS3 delayed at launch too? Perhaps the 3rd console curse is true, lol

    Guessing this is the rumor...

    http://www.engadget.com/2013/08/14/x...ets-at-launch/

    Microsoft just issued a neat list of all the countries where the Xbox One will be available at launch. All told, the list includes 13 markets, with eight confirmed to follow sometime in 2014. If you can do simple math, you know that totals 21 markets, which is how many markets Microsoft initially said would be covered. Due to concerns about meeting demand, though, Microsoft is trimming that initial list to 13 countries, including: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom, United States and New Zealand. That leaves eight countries off the launch list (Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland) which now won't get the Xbox One until sometime in 2014.
