Xbox One won’t work in South Africa at launch?


This is obviously subject to change over the coming months, but as it stands right now Xbox One will only work in certain countries (highlighted in green above) at launch:

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

This information comes from the Xbox website, which states: “Xbox One games are for activation and distribution only in specified geographic regions.”

There are plans to launch in Asia a year later, but no mention yet about what Africa can expect.
