Our priority is ensuring our customers get the best Xbox One experience the first day it is available. To do that, and in order to meet demand, we have adjusted the number of markets that will receive Xbox One in November to 13 markets, including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom, United States and New Zealand, in November.

We remain committed to launching Xbox One in Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, as soon as possible in 2014.

And now delays. Microsoft on a roll.

Interesting to see Australia was kept on for November.

I can't find any recent sales details [http://www.kotaku.com.au/2010/01/australian-console-sales-figures-s...] but there can't be more than 2-3 million 360's in the whole country.

Although if you add on the Australia tax, each sale is almost worth two for Microsoft.

So in Australia you must have the highest concentration of microsoft consoles in the world. More than one per ten people and that includes the elderly, infirm, mentally disabled, newborns, luddites, yes all of australia.

Or perhaps the contients reputation preceeds it and the animals have turned from killing humans to consoles. Lol =D

Out of 23/24 million you can probably guess about 12 million are adults.

Seeing as there's no data for the past three years i'll hazard 2 million of each console (wii, 360, ps3)

That actually does seem a bit high, every second adult has a console...
