While many have criticized Microsoft for falling behind Sony in sales, with the launch of Titanfall we could see the new Xbox One start to turn things around. We also saw Microsoft finally add in full Twitch streaming support and it seems as though the company is ready to launch the new console in a number of regions around the world yet to see the new Xbox One officially on store shelves.
Microsoft has announced that Xbox One will be launching in 26 new markets including Argentina, Czech Republic, Japan, and Sweden to name a few. Unfortunately Redmond said the box wouldn't become available until September, but that it would start to share more data on the local level towards the end of next month.
According to today's announcement, Xbox One gamers are now currently spending an average of 5 hours a day on the system. As Microsoft's Chief Product Officer of Xbox Marc Whitten leaves to take on a similar role at Sonos, Yusuf Mehdi said today that last week the company saw the highest number of hours logged on Xbox Live since the Xbox One launched last November.
Here is the complete list of new markets the Xbox One will officially be coming to as of September this year: Argentina, Belgium, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, India, Israel, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and the UAE.
