Xbox One Finally Listed Officially by Amazon Japan; Is a Release Date Incoming?

on March 4, 2014 4:07 AM

Today Amazon Japan has finally opened an official listing for the Xbox One. The console still hasn’t been released in the country, that was labeled as Tier 2 and destined to receive Microsoft’s new kid on the block some time this year.

The listing doesn’t yet include a price or a release date, but you can find it here.

Prior to the opening of the new listing, Amazon Japan carried only the import version of the console.

Just yesterday we learned that Microsoft is working on a strategy to change the image of the Xbox brand in Japan. Could this be a signal that the manufacturer from Redmond is about to reveal a release date for the console in the Archipelago of the rising sun, and maybe in the other Tier 2 countries?

Xbox One has been launched only in 13 countries so far, and the rest of the world is still waiting for updates. We’ll keep you posted on any further news shared by Microsoft.
