    The official list of launch countries has been recently released by Microsoft along with some more 'fine print' added to the ToS, basically 'you must waive your right to sue' or big brother will not turn on your XB1, plus if you happen to live in an 'poorer' country (as the launch list matchs the list of top 20 richest countries), you will have to have enough funds left over after importing your console to sign-up to a good VPN service, and even that is not know yet will be good enough to trick the Microsoft DRM Cloud into believing you don't live where you really are.
    Here is quote from GBATemp, along with the launch list of the richest countries:
    "The official requirements in order to play video games on the Xbox One have been posted on Microsoft's site. While one or two of these requirements (broadband connection, Kinect connected, etc.) have caused quite a stir already, it seems that's only part of the "new vision" Microsoft has.
    In addition to waiving your class-action lawsuit rights upon activation of the console, the system requires a 720P+ display (it will have no SD mode), TV play needs your tuner to plug into the Xbox One with HDMI, and the required Xbox One service will only be available in select regions, meaning users who import will likely need a proxy or VPN to keep their Xbox One connected through in order to keep playing their games if they don't live in one of the supported countries."
    Not bad Microsoft, you're not making any enemies so far. Obvious sarcasm there. Here is the full list of countries that will recieve the XBOX One at launch.
