Xbox One Entering More Than Two Dozen Foreign Markets In September

Microsoft has announced today that the Xbox One will become available in 26 new markets this September. Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing, Strategy and Business for Xbox, also announced in the press release that Xbox Live saw it’s highest number of hours logged since the Xbox One’s launch (due in no small part to the wild popularity of Titanfall and the massive sales increase following its release).
