    Microsoft says Xbox One will launch in fewer markets than previously announced

    Microsoft confirmed Wednesday that the upcoming Xbox One console will launch in November in 13 countries instead of the initially planned 21.

    Microsoft had committed to a simultaneous launch in the 21 markets at the E3 gaming conference back in May. However, Microsoft now calls this an “aggressive goal,” and says it has decided to scale back those ambitions.

    Consumers in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States, and New Zealand will still receive the console on day one, meaning sometime this November (there still is no confirmed launch date).

    However, eight previously planned markets—Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and Switzerland—have had their launch plans delayed to 2014.
