Rumor:X1 delayed to 2014 in parts of EU (translation issues)

#1 Edited by Darji (5294 posts) -

Looks like there is more believable rumor going around that the launch of the Xbox One has been delayed in certain regions in Europe because of translation issues. So far it seems that it will launch in the US and UK on time but not in certain smaller countries like Belgium, Holland and Scandinavian countries.

I wonder what translation issues. Maybe Language support for Kinect? I really don't know but that is the only thing that would make sense.

That would be a bummer if true.

Have they even announced tentative launch dates for European countries or whether it would be day and date everyhwere or a staggered launch?

All ready debunked. Not true.

If true that will make the gap between the PS4 and the X1 bigger.

It would be a miracle if they got the UK down. YEhllo MAyeet, Goood DAy 2 Yor.

I love whenever rumors like this turn out to be true, because it makes all the condescending folks who piss on "rumor mongers" look like total jerks.

I bet it's because pre-order numbers/demand for Xbox One is super-soft in the EU, and 'Murica's are much better - so Microsoft plays to its strengths and puts as many units as possible into their US launch.

Yet another launch change that falls in line with the yield issues we've been hearing about for awhile from MS insiders.

All ready debunked. Not true.

Rebunked. Now true again.

So let me get this straight... we already got less features on the console, and now we are not getting the console at all. (in Norway)
Yay Microsoft.... :(

Oh well, at least the PS4 is still on track :) (For the time being)

Oh, clearly you mean the Red Bull X1 Prototype is delayed to 2014. That would be a bummer.
