Microsoft Xbox One to launch in 26 new nations in September Microsoft has confirmed that the Xbox One will launch in 26 new nations in September, including the key market of Japan.
The full list includes Argentina, Belgium, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, India, Israel, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and the UAE.

"We'll have much more to share at a local level towards the end of April, so stay tuned," adds Xbox boss Larry Hryb.

Microsoft will need a strong launch in the international nations if it wants to bridge the sales gap between the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. Sony has sold over 6.1 million units since launch, while Microsoft has only sold 3.7 million units of the more expensive console.
