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.

They are dropping mostly small countries that need no localization but are keeping the big countries that requires localization. So it can't problems with supplying big market or problem developing that many localization at one time.

Yeah, what kind of additional localization would they need for Switzerland if they launch in France, Germany and Italy already?

Smells like their infrastructure is not yet ready in these countries.
