Japan will have to wait till September to get the Xbox One
It has been a while since the Xbox One has released and it had hit quite a lot of markets upon its official release (not to forget the hype which was created almost all over the world). But Japan might not be so happy with Microsoft when it comes to its next gen gaming console. Xbox's relationship with the Japanese market hasnt been so great and the release date which has been set for the console's arrival in the country will do nothing to change that.
This is because gamers in Japan still have a long wait ahead of them; the console will arrive in their market by September 4th. This is not so great considering that it has been a good ten months long time since the gaming console first arrived in the US and other 'first tier' countries. Microsoft would probably regret this decision since Sony's PS4 had been released in Japan months ago and now the Xbox One is coming in seven months later than its competitor. Redmond's Eastern wing has not said anything about the price as yet but it will surely come out soon enough.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
