    Hey, so for all of you eagerly anticipating the Xbox One's launch (I know there have to be a few of you guys out there), here's a head's up.

    :arrow:ArsTechnica

    Yikes. So much for the Streambox.

    Now, you can still record 5 minute clips and upload them to your Xbox Live or SkyDrive accounts. Here's hoping they get the Twitch glitch sitch fixed in time - any longer and we might have to miss some midsummer night streams.

    They are perfecting it. God knows the PS4 livestream has the capacity of a potato with how bad its livestream feature is right now. Its better they wait

    You're worried about streaming? Pff-- put yourself in the shoes of the average Polish XBox fan - the console's launch date hasn't even been announced yet, let alone online features.

    All Microsoft stated so-far was that "the sales results of the system within the first couple of weeks after the launch will have an impact of the Polish launch date". The situation's even worse with Live since we already know that it won't be launched Day 1 - Poland among other countries will have to wait for it, possibly a substantial amount of time.

    I'm sorry Microsoft, but what are you guys thinking? It's not like we're in the European Union or something. This isn't even an isolated problem of Poland - countries like Norway, Finland, Sweden and Switzerland had their launches set back to "sometime in 2014" while Brazil, a third-world market is getting the system Day 1.

    I'm just lost for words at this point, it's as if they don't want to make money.

    The U.S is not the belly button of the world, so let's not treat it as one. ;)

    It launches in 13 countries - Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, United Kingdom the United States and New Zealand, everybody else has to wait.
    Very true. Holy crap, I wonder what would improve the sales of Microsoft's products on this market... Hmm... Maybe "giving a sh*t" about the consumer? :unsure: Nah, they'll lap everything up anything, let's delay the launch for no reason whatsoever. :tpi:

    It's not even funny, there's this XBox fan asking me "what's good on the PS4 front and is it worth buying one?" already - you're losing customers, Microsoft.

    Been enjoying Twitch streams for the past few months, it's ideal when I'm bored and I don't really want to watch something 'heavy' where I have to stay focused.
    The amount of games they stream is pretty astonishing too, not only LoL (my favourite by far, great game), but also Pokemon, Mario (several titles), Battlefield , ....
    Very handy site when you have 2 screens at your disposal.
    I can definitely see the use in a Twitch feature on a console, I'd love to watch some LoL matches on my TV :3

    It's pretty much the same thing here. "Somewhere probably early 2014", according to speculation February-March. In the meantime literally every major country surrounding the Netherlands and Belgium (UK, Germany and France) gets it on launch day. >_> Oh well, if I was going to buy a next gen console it would have been a PS4 anyway.

    I can't but +1 Arras's post. I'm actually glad I'm not a microsoft fanboy, as this is just stupid. Can't speak on behalf of Poland, but we're pretty much SURROUNDED by countries that will get that console before we do. If it wasn't for their...not so great presentation, I would expect people hopping over the border to go get one. But as it stands...I doubt anyone is even going to bother with an online purchase.
