Microsoft has already launched the Xbox 360 in N. America and Europe and the launch in Japan is this coming Saturday, but the rest of Asia will have to wait a bit longer. Evan Ramstad at Wall Street Journal Asia:
The company announced it will sell the new system, called xBox 360, in South Korea on Feb. 24, 2006, and in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan on March 2, 2006.
Microsoft hasn’t set a release date for China, where the product is assembled by contract manufacturers and then shipped to other parts of the world.
Presumably releases in the remaining parts of the globe will follow shortly, but no schedule has been announced.
