Microsoft have decided the best strategy in the Next Gen console war is Global domination. What are Microsoft going to do today? Same thing they do every day, try to take over the world!
Global domination began in September with the introduction of 28 new regions all being drafted up for the launch of the Xbox One. This will certainly improve sales figures and hopefully get the console some better exclusives.
The PS4 is currently available in 72 countries around the world whilst the Xbox One to date has only been available in a mere 13 countries. Microsoft plan on changing all that with the introduction of the following regions:
Belgium, Chile and Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark Finland, Greece, Hungary, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Saudi Arabia & United Arab Emirates with Argentina to follow.
Microsoft plans to release the next gen console on the following dates for each new region:
