Not all counties will get voice support at launch

Written by David Stellmack

Microsoft confirms support for only five countries

In an interesting development, Microsoft has confirmed that only five countries will be able to take advantage of the Xbox One voice commands at launch. Voice command support will be available to Xbox One buyers in the US, Canada, UK, France, and Germany. Voice command support will be coming to other counties over time.

With the new Kinect for the Xbox One being such a big part of the console, it is pretty surprising that the voice command capabilities will be limited to so few markets at launch. While not officially confirmed by Microsoft, sources tell us that they believe that localization issues like the lack of voice command support is part of the reason Microsoft has elected to delay the release of the Xbox One till early 2014 in a number of markets.
