Although the Xbox One was launched in late November last year, there was no word on when it would be available locally. We only knew from Alan Bowman, Regional Vice President for Sales and Marketing in Asia, that the Xbox One would come to Asia in "late 2014".
That earlier statement is true as Microsoft has just announced that the Xbox One would be launched in 26 additional markets later this September. Included in this list of 26 markets is Singapore. Other Asian countries to be the list includes Japan, Korea and India. Hong Kong, Taiwan and also China, which recently lifted a 14-year ban on gaming consoles, are notably absent from the list.
According to Microsoft, more details regarding the launch will be released later in April. Hopefully, this would include information such as pricing and bundles.
