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.

Missing the christmas sales in northern Europe might (or should i say likely) cause the rather healthy balance between MS and Sony consoles today to crack and turn countries like Sweden into mostly Sony turf. But on the other hand, with all the bad press they have gotten in this country i would understand if they just said "screw it, no XBO fo you"

It seems like a major mistake to me. Scandinavia is an area with high purchasing strength and especially so during christmas. When the new year rolls in everyone will already have purchased a Sony.
Someone at MS really dropped the ball here.
