Website The Verge has been on the receiving end of a bevy of rumours surrounding the Xbox One. The rumours originated on a NeoGAF forum post, but The Verge has since verified a number of the rumours with their own sources. These rumour include the suggestion that Microsoft will be releasing a white version of the Xbox One, which was originally reserved for Microsoft employees. In addition to that, an Xbox One dashboard update is rumoured to hit in March of this year.
More interestingly for us in South Africa, is that this leaker provided Microsoft’s continued roll-out plan for the Xbox One. Two more release dates have been revealed for multiple territories across the globe. In April 2014, Microsoft is rumoured to be releasing the Xbox One in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Russia, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Colombia, Chile, and Argentina. Then, a second roll-out is planned in October for China, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Greece, Portugal, Slovakia, Turkey, Saudia Arabia, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Israel, India, Indonesia, and Egypt.
Microsoft has yet to comment on these rumours; we’ll update as soon as we hear anything.
