    Here is the latest.
    Xbox One delayed till 2014 in eight of 21 regional markets

    Microsoft to give those affected a free game as recompense

    Microsoft has announced that Xbox One will miss its November 2013 release in eight of the previously announced 21 launch markets - that's Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden and Switzerland.
    "This was an aggressive goal and the team has been working very hard to deliver Xbox One to as many markets as possible," Microsoft PR chap Major Nelson wrote in an Xbox NewsWire post.
    "Our priority is ensuring our customers get the best Xbox One experience the first day it is available," he continued. "To do that, and in order to meet demand, we have adjusted the number of markets that will receive Xbox One in November to 13 markets, including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom, United States and New Zealand.
    "We remain committed to launching Xbox One in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, as soon as possible in 2014."
    The delay doesn't appear to have anything to do with manufacturing enough consoles. "While we wish we could launch Xbox One simultaneously in these markets, there are many factors that determine the timing of specific market launches. This includes work to localize the Xbox One dash, incorporate additional voice and languages, and build partnerships to bring apps and meaningful local content to each country.

    "We understand this will be disappointing news for our fans in the impacted countries, and we are doing everything we can to bring Xbox One to you as soon as possible next year."
    There's a splash of good news if you're among those affected, however - Microsoft will compensate pre-ordering consumers with a free game. "If you are in these markets and have questions about your pre-order, please contact the local retailer where you placed your pre-order. To show our appreciation for your patience, if you have already preordered an Xbox One Day One system before today in those countries, you will also receive a pack-in game with your console when it launches."

    I guess Cboat statement about Xbone yield issue might be true.

    What's clear? Press information? I doubt they'd just go back to all these things, without having that as a possibility already considered for launch in 2013.

    No, Cboat said yield issues but does not mean not able to produce a working unit. So slow production --> limited supplies for other countries.

    Due to yield issue it makes you wonder if the final unit are reliable.

    If the off chance of Xbox One being delayed until 2014, I'll just have a lot more money to spend on my PS4 stuff.

    Delayed on the 8 countries? It sounds like X1 preorder rate isn't very good in those countries and MS is moving the units reserved for those countries to other countries, like UK.

    At E3, we announced that Xbox One would be available in 21 markets around the world at launch. This was an aggressive goal and the team has been working very hard to deliver Xbox One to as many markets as possible.
    Yield issues confirmed I guess. Couldn't meet their allocations.

    I'm sure MS already said there's no such thing as hardware upgrade happening, so no way they'll delay the launch date and maybe raise the cost even further if they were to upgrade.

    Personally I think a delay would help rebuild their image as lets face it they HAVE done a complete 180 in many areas. It would give them a chance to reintroduce the X1 equipped with all the changes, and rebuilt interest in the console.

    9 years and counting!

    Another thing. Do you think when it eventually releases in these countries it will be cheaper? Because you could still buy a ps4 and a new game for less than the price of the delayed xbone with its free game. Just a thought.

    Nah, I don't think it has anything to do with the hardware itself. At least according to MS it isn't hardware related.
