    Preordered... just in case. I can always cancel later, but I foresee super short supply for the holidays so if I decide I want it, I'd want it over the holidays.

    And I'm fairly sure I am not cancelling my preorder. It's either Xbox One or hunker down with ye olde 360. PS4 just doesn't entice me that much.

    Does anyone know if the Day One Edition consoles are US only? Would be good to get them in other countries.

    Unless you bought all the games (and probably DVDs and stuff) in the US.

    Sorry, that sucks though. Hopefully they work on expanding very quickly.

    That's the best part, i always import my games from the US and play them in my consoles here in Colombia without issues

    But now with Xbox One i can't do it

    Xbox One games are for activation and distribution only in specified geographic regions. See game package and/or retailer product information, for each game’s specific geographic regions.
    Microsoft won't let me activate the games i bought in the US here in the country that i'm living right now....that sucks!....i have a US account since day one, i don't know if it will work as in xbox 360

    That's right... the activation and game checks. They'll know you're not in a supported region. Why does Microsoft always have licensing issues all over the world? I mean, seriously.. I completely understand that different countries have vastly different rules and licensing can be tough, but what would stop Microsoft from completely unlocking the Xbox One for global play in all regions?

    I have to wonder if it has something to do with Microsoft being a US corporation, while Sony is Japanese? (In my admittedly very quick search, it looks like Sony Computer Entertainment makes the Playstation hardware, and that's the Japan-based parent company of Sony Computer Entertainment of America, which handles the advertising and marketing of the Playstation)

    I am hoping the game only has to come from the same region as the console that way I can still use my console overseas. If not I may well have no option but get a PS4 as Thailand is not listed for 2014 release.

    Yep not impressed that all Xbox ones will be region locked to the country of sale. Only way around this mess is to set up a VPN to the country you console was purchased. Not sure if I willing to put up with the extra hassle and expense of doing this or switch to a PS4. Microsoft has left the whole of Asia a PS4 only option and lost the potential to pick up tens of millions of sales in the first year. Very poor planning Microsoft Very poor.

    I'm not sure how MS did in other Asian countries, but far as Japan goes...360 was just an afterthought to people there.

    Thailand is dominate buy the PS3 as well. Windows phone has been selling extremely well here I see them everywhere had to wait 4 weeks to get a Nokia 920. And they just started selling the Surface so I am surprised Microsoft did not mention Thailand on the list of countries getting the Xbox one in 2014.
    I am guessing Microsoft is not bothered about Asia and have left it to the PS 4, Buy the time they release it here XB1 will be irrelevant.

    I want one but, I will wait out till the DRM levels are confirmed and if there is a work-around for people with spotty internet. I will have one at one point but, when is a different story.

    There is still a few months for MS to work that out...

    Pre ordered with 4 games Ryse Forza 5 QB and FFXV

    Now, to the new issue if they really lock them to the 21 countries they are launching the console, I will be screwed... I live in Panama and my xbox 360 works fine my account is a US account (live is not supported in Panama) and I'm used to import my stuff (had to do it also with my 920) The level of support of MS here in Panama is 0 Sony and Nintendo take all the cake here, they do launch parties, release day game parties with stores opening at mid night, 3D mapping projection over landmark buildings with game trailers for the PS3.... I'm a PS3 and Wii owner yet I hate to see no support for my 360 here in Panama, I love MS products, but they forgot about this country or most of latin america (same in Venezuela, born there moved to Panama 3 years ago)

    Isn't it...kinda not smart to preorder a console you're not sure will be working properly in your country?

    I ended up pre-ordering a One. I was ready to switch to PS4, but their E3 presentation was just awful. Still not 100% that I'll go through with it, as MS just can't seem to get their PR act together and I'm growing tired of the stupid remarks from Mattrick and Co. Someone needs to put a muzzle on these guys and find a spokesman capable of communicating outside of the boardroom.

    That would be Major Nelson, and they really need to unleash that guy. He has admitted to them not pulling off PR well so far, will be working on getting answers to tough questions, ensuring positive press about features the Xbox One has for the future, and even mentioned them possibly having a long term plan for indie game development and self publishing, but couldn't share more details. He said family share is still being worked on but he is actively trying to get everything he can out of it to share asap (but admits that may be a while until they finish it up), and has committed to a reddit AMA (ask me anything) closer to launch. All this was found on some thread in reddit, where people were talking about his interview with their reddit spokesperson. He just popped in and spent some time replying to random comments. I really hope they put the guy on the frontlines more.

    I went ahead and pre ordered as well,There is always the option to cancel the order closer too the release date if we find out there is no way to get the console working.
    Just hope Microsoft decide to change the country lock out off imported consoles, if they do XB1 will work OS, if not I will most likely set up a VPN to allow mine to work. I Have invested heavily in Microsoft products [3 WMP, 2 Surface RTs, 1 Surface Pro 1 Xbox 360 and 2 Win 8 PC] I am looking forward to using the smart glass features with the Surface.

    I think this will be the first system I buy that I won't buy a game with it. I'm just going to download the game from online ;). At least for the first few, just to see how that goes...
