Xbox One Japan Release Date Announced

Microsoft has officially confirmed that the Xbox One is launching in Japan on September 4th.

The console has since launched in mostly all territories except in Japan since its release in November. In addition, Microsoft has also stated that this September will mark its launch in 26 other territories including the Nordics, Korea, and Russia.

With the Xbox One trailing PS4 in terms of sells by over 2 million units, opening up their sales to these other 26 countries could give Microsoft the needed bump to match Sony's 7 million units sold directly to customers.
