India, Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, and Taiwan all got their hands on the Xbox One.
Good these nations get to play a new gen console finally.
In Hong Kong they were already able to buy the XBO, because many shops just sold imports. Now it's just released 'officialy', but most people who wanted one probably already picked it up by now...
But you would think that an officially localized unit would cost less than an imported one? So those who wanted one ahead of the pack got one but those who wanted one and have been patiently waiting.....good things come.
I'm not sure if the official release will be much cheaper than the imported version, TBH. Usually it doesn't differ all that much.
Here in Asia prices usually doesn't change much wether we get a console before or after its official release date. Heck! Even an official price drop from the Big 3 won't move prices for months lol
Well, I hope whoever purchases the Xbox One enjoys it. :)
Mr Bad guy nice pic seen him live in 80s on the Works tour, bub up just for Fred. I am sure they will enjoy it.
Well you can safely assume I'm completely jealous of you seeing him live. I was born a month and 12 days before he died... So I never got a chance. But about 11 years after becoming a HUGE Queen and Freddie Mercury fan, I know a lot about him and the band :) On topic- yeah I'm sure they will too. Its a great console
Nice it was 1985 in Sydney I was 12 years old was the best live show I have ever seen and I have seen alot. Got to shake the bands hand through the fence not Freddy though, the concert is on YouTube someone filmed it right near where I was sitting poor vide sound though cheers.
Great console. Urwifeminder good to meet ya. I live in newcastle not far from ya.
I hope some of the games we have seen for the region make their way to the west, (fingers crossed)
Prepare for the tides to change with a total sell through in those five countries of a total of 500 units lol
Starfire said " haters gonna hate ".
As a gamer I sincerely wish the Xbox brand every success in the region! Although as a PS gamer, I couldn't care less...just enough to make this comment Lulz ;/
And I sincerely wish the Xbox would die screaming. It's going to fail utterly...it's only a matter of time now. Microsoft has been a poison on the industry since they entered into the business, and I can not WAIT until they are gone. We don't need or want their "competition"...the industry did just fine without them before, and it will continue long after they leave.
@jnemesh I respectfully Disagree :) That 'Poison' had a major influence on what Sony delivered with PS4. So...Swings 'n Roundabouts ;/
Without MS and their Xbox, Sony would have sold you a 600 dollar machine with no price drop. MS forced Sony to lower their price, upgrade their online service, force them to have free online and a paid service that offered more for your buck. Without MS who knows what Sony would have gotten away with shoved down your throats...and what else could you have done? Gone with Nintendo and their Wii console? Yea... What we don't need are closed minded, simple trolls like you who can't get the blinders off and see that each company has brought something great to the gaming world.
If Microsoft wasn't in the industry, the PS4 would have been 999 US dollars.
Something definitely wrong with you jnemesh. Dropped on your head at birth or something. Anyway great success to all 3 consoles I hope.
Like they said in gamespot, thanks to microsoft the western gaming industry boomed, it's only now that Sony is back on top that Japanese games will resurge and western and online games will be in decline. No! Nothing wrong with MS coming to the party.
