Microsoft today confirmed that it's delaying the launch of its upcoming Xbox One console in eight markets until 2014 in order to better serve the 13 other markets that will see the console in November as originally planned, including the United States (hooray!). The other dozen territories that are unaffected -- but may see more inventory as a result -- include Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom, and New Zealand.

 

If you happen to live in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, or Switzerland, you will see the Xbox One launch "as soon as possible in 2014." If you already pre-ordered a Day One Edition, Microsoft will generously provide some reconciliation in the form of a pack-in game with your console when it launches.  Woot?!?

I guess this indicates where it is selling well and where the sales must be among the weakest.

Yeah, thread title could be different.

 

Also, notice that Japan is not listed as a 2013 or now-2014 release territory?  Is this because they only are listing the 2013-to-2014 ones or because they just don't care much?  Either way, it says something about how little Japan cares for the Xbox brand.

Japan had always been Nintendo and Playstation. In the grand scheme of things, I doubt Xbone will even be a blip on their radar.
