  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • Greece
  • Hungary
  • India

While Russia is listed as a new market, it is unclear if this includes the recently annexed Crimea.  I have reached out to Microsoft for comment.

        Not sure how it’s really a click bait attempt. The headline for this article is pretty tame.

          True, in fact my comment was in reply to the previous post and was related to the part of the article commenting about the commercialization of the Xbox in Russia.

      Dude, that referendum was held with Russian troops all over Crimea, it can’t be seen as a democratic referendum. People these days…
