Xbox owns the US market, I don't see that changing anytime soon and I would never want it to either. Congrats to MS for a nice rollout of the Xbox One and the continued success of the 360!
The PS4 has sold more units in the US at this stage, but it was also released in the US a week earlier than the Xbox One.
The One was made in China?....
My 360, I think it says made in Mexico...
Yes, Xbox One is made in China. PS4 is made in Japan and China.
Does anyone know how it works if I buy a european Xbox One from Norway. I know the games are multiplatform and such. But according to some comments I've seen, they claim I won't be able to buy games online or addons online with a Norwegian credit card and/or account with a European box.
some say you can just pretend the card isn't Norwegian by setting the card location as a random adress somewhere else, but does that mean I'll have to use use a new XBL account with a new location to... If so I'll jut skip "importing" and wait for official launch, whenever that is.
Credit Cards don't have locality information, nor have I ever bought something online with a credit card where it has asked me for location the credit card was issued.
You can buy games via the store from an imported console into Norway, its all to do with your Live or PS (PS Users) account. You can even buy games if you travel overseas with a Norway set account but you will be buying from the Norway (EU) store.
The issues with imported consoles is with the blu-ray player, blu-ray disks are region locked and if you import from the US you can only watch blu-ray movies which are US region locked or region-free (pirated blu-rays).
Another thing which might be an issue is the PAL vs NTSC, depending on where you buy it from it may not be fully compatible with your audio / visual setup (tv, amplifiers, etc).
