Microsoft has officially confirmed that eight European countries will get the console late, in 2014.  The eight countries who will experience a delay in the product’s arrival are Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden and Switzerland. That said in November the Xbox One is still expected to arrive on time in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom, United States and New Zealand.

Microsoft stated that: “We understand this will be disappointing news for our fans in the impacted countries, and we are doing everything we can to bring Xbox One to you as soon as possible next year.”

Those in the affected countries will be compensated with a free game if they had already pre-ordered an Xbox One before this announcement.  Microsoft did not disclose why they were experiencing delays in those countries but you can probably safely assume it is because Microsoft wants to focus its demand on the biggest markets first. Microsoft also didn’t state when in 2014 the delayed arrival would be for the affected countries, they merely disclosed “as soon as possible”.
