The New Xbox 'One' To Arrive In India A Year Late - 2014 Nov



The list of countries where Xbox One Live will work on launch.

Xbox One Pre-Order Product Information - Xbox.com

Australia
Austria
Belgium
Brazil
Canada
Denmark
Finland
France
Germany
Ireland
Italy
Mexico
Netherlands
New Zealand
Norway
Russia
Spain
Sweden
Switzerland
United Kingdom
United States

Since the console is based on 24/7 online connectivity and games have to be authenticated online and India is not one of the supported markets, the console, even if imported will not work in India.

Official statement regarding Asia launch - Microsoft Plots 2014 Launch for Xbox One in Asia - Digits - WSJ
Asian gamers will have to wait a year longer than their American counterparts to get their hands on Microsoft’s Xbox One, which will only be available in the region in late 2014, a year after its U.S. launch this November.

All the balls are in Sony's court right now. They have a one year window to do whatever it takes.

I think Microsoft could be shooting themselves in the foot with this. In many countries over the world including the U.S there are people who dont have 24x7 access to the internet.

Could there be some spoofing or workaround for that?

Re: The New Xbox 'One' To Arrive In India A Year Late - 2014 Nov

I haven't tried Xbox Live in India in a long time because when I was there, Live was officially available however people were able to circumvent this by signing with a US account in the past if I remember correctly. Right now, since the console is shifting from points based system to actual currency based system, it might be more complicated even if it works (Eg. Issues with registering CC because CC comes attached with the home address as specified on that CC)

We also have to remember that there has to be a connection made to MS servers every 24 hours. Which means that your box will ping them ONCE every 24 hours and its no rocket science for them to understand that your signing on with an Indian IP for that matter. So AFAIK even if you get the console, you get it work, you get onto live.. With entire Asia being on a LIVE "blackout", the multiplayer gameplay will be severely affected for Indians because there won't be any servers around the continent so its entirely useless. Why even try logging onto Live, for Netflix? Oh, wait.

Also the DRM policies are atrocious this time with very stringent region locked games. Where the heck do you get your Xbox One games from? Not from Asia at least, you have to import them from Europe or US, all depends on where you get your console from.

MS cannot backtrack immediately on their policies, its not in their nature. They might change a their policies if it affects profits but it doesn't look like it. Their whole business model, and vision for the future is based on these policies. They are pretty much future proofing themselves like Sony did with BluRay, everyone hated Sony for the $599 price tag back in the day but it paid off.

Not only that, it has been 'reported' that Xbox One is facing severe yield issues which is hampering their production to great extent. For eg. in US it has been reported by several GameStop employees that their stores are getting close to 30-40 PS4's compared to 8-10 Xbox Ones. Now all these are rumblings on the internet and only time will tell.

Alright, its been confirmed. Don't even bother importing a console. The games wont work.

Re: The New Xbox 'One' To Arrive In India A Year Late - 2014 Nov

I think more than benefiting Sony, this will be benefiting PC gaming. I think console gaming will be overall hurt because of the policies of both Microsoft and Sony.

Microsoft have taken a very dangerous and arrogant stance here. In the short term this might pay off and actually make big money for them. However making big money and being the big monopoly are not always the same thing. Apple makes big money but is definitely not a monopoly. What Microsoft are doing both with Windows and Xbox is threatening their dominance in the market.

Re: The New Xbox 'One' To Arrive In India A Year Late - 2014 Nov

Although India not being among the list of starting countries is a stasrtling and unhappy situation for all other points there is a write up by VP of Microsoft !!

There was a big controversy over Microsoft potentially charging a licensing fee to those people who bought used games. Turns out some of the rumors were false and Microsoft addressed the issue today.



Buy the way you want—disc or digital—on the same day: You’ll be able to buy disc-based games at traditional retailers or online through Xbox Live, on day of release. Discs will continue to be a great way to install your games quickly.



Access your entire games library from any Xbox One—no discs required: After signing in and installing, you can play any of your games from any Xbox One because a digital copy of your game is stored on your console and in the cloud. So, for example, while you are logged in at your friend’s house, you can play your games.



Share access to your games with everyone inside your home: Your friends and family, your guests and acquaintances get unlimited access to all of your games. Anyone can play your games on your console–regardless of whether you are logged in or their relationship to you.



Give your family access to your entire games library anytime, anywhere: Xbox One will enable new forms of access for families. Up to ten members of your family can log in and play from your shared games library on any Xbox One. Just like today, a family member can play your copy of Forza Motorsport at a friend’s house. Only now, they will see not just Forza, but all of your shared games. You can always play your games, and any one of your family members can be playing from your shared library at a given time.



Trade-in and resell your disc-based games: Today, some gamers choose to sell their old disc-based games back for cash and credit. We designed Xbox One so game publishers can enable you to trade in your games at participating retailers. Microsoft does not charge a platform fee to retailers, publishers, or consumers for enabling transfer of these games.



Give your games to friends: Xbox One is designed so game publishers can enable you to give your disc-based games to your friends. There are no fees charged as part of these transfers. There are two requirements: you can only give them to people who have been on your friends list for at least 30 days and each game can only be given once.

There is a catch however.

Third party publishers may opt in or out of supporting game resale and may set up business terms or transfer fees with retailers.

I suspect greedy publishers will eventually try to make more money off used games.

MS PR at play. Look at the comments in those articles you posted. Sony has come out and said PS4 will be no different than PS3 in handling online DRM.

One workaround that comes to mind is connecting your Xbox One through a Virtual Private Network to the country it is region-locked to. Of course, the games will have to be of the same region-code as well.

[UPDATE] #1: MS now has reduced the price of XBone to $399 with the exclusion of the Kinect (earlier it was bundled) to compete with the PS4's price. Looks like they're getting surprised more and more by the steps Sony is taking

[UPDATE] #2: PS4 is now on preorder on Game4U with a minimal downpayment of 3k. Full price not announced yet.
