If they're going to release in some countries without Kinect voice commands they need to make that perfectly clear sooner rather than later.
E3 was announcement of 21 launch countries.
In August they lowered it to 13 launch countries.
While we wish we could launch Xbox One simultaneously in these markets, there are many factors that determine the timing of specific market launches. This includes work to localize the Xbox One dash, incorporate additional voice and languages, and build partnerships to bring apps and meaningful local content to each country.
When do you think it was updated to reflect that they only have voice commands working in 5 countries? Wouldn't previous facts shown a figure higher than 5?
Yes, they need to make it crystal clear. Especially at the retail front if they intend to sell units in countries without that functionality.Edited by freemeat - 8/29/13 at 1:42pm
