Xbox One To Launch In South Africa, 26 Other Markets In September

Microsoft has given an official date for the launch of the Xbox One, in Japan. However, it appears it might also be the date for the other 26 markets which include: Argentina, Belgium,  Korea, Netherlands, Russia, South Africa, and UAE - getting the new console that month.

The Xbox One will finally go on sale in Japan on 4th September, around 10 months after its launch in the UK, North America and Australia.

Microsoft has also unveiled a partial list of confirmed games in the latest issue of Famitsu, via Gematsu - it includes Halo for Xbox One and Insomniac's Sunset Overdrive, though it's not clear whether these will be available at launch.

Xbox One includes an 8-core x86 processor and an HDMI pass-thru, which allows you to watch TV through your Xbox. It also comes with 8GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive.

New Head of Xbox Phil Spencer has admitted to feeling disappointment about the Xbox One's staggered worldwide release. "It never feels good to stand on stage and talk about 21 markets and ship in 13," he told OXM earlier in the year. "But it's a journey, and it's not won or lost the day after launch. It will be something that plays out, so making sure the quality of each market when we ship is the important part."
