Xbox One Nordic delay: Swiss retailer says launch is unlikely before Easter

Friday, 13th December 2013 10:51 GMT By Dave Cook

Xbox One’s Nordic launch was rumoured as delayed into Q3 2014 recently, and one Swiss retailer has updated the console’s product page with a warning that this could indeed be the case.

It follows a report by GameReactor that suggests Xbox One will launch across Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden in Q3, 2014.

Now,NeoGAF user chadskin has spotted an Xbox One product update posted by Swiss retailer World of Games.

When translated it reads, “Important: According to Microsoft, the delivery date of the Xbox One to several countries (e.g. Switzerland) has been delayed for an undetermined time for adjustments to the XBL market place. Due to several conversations we expect that a delivery in this country is not going to happen any time before Easter. An even longer waiting time is not entirely unlikely.”

We’ve contacted our local Microsoft contacts to see if there’s any truth to the matter. Stay tuned.

    I am Swiss, and the very same retailer already broke the story back in the day (through ) that Microsoft was going to block imports of Xbox Ones to Switzerland from other countries (such as Germany). They didn’t actually “block” it, but put pressure onto distributors to not allocate units to retailers who wanted to import Xbox One units for the Swiss market. So basically, they probably have a good reason when they update their product page like this.
    Also, Switzerland (Swiss) has nothing to do with nordic countries and it’s not the same as Sweden. ;)

    Man thats a long time to have to wait on a Xbox One. You would figure Microsoft would have had this completed before launch in 13 countries.
