September 16 is a big day for Xbox, where the Xbox One launches in 16 new countries. The launch of the Xbox One in China is a big deal, as it is the first time that a console made outside of China has launched in the country, with the Chinese government banning foreign consoles sales in the country over the last 14 years. Microsoft has a full list of dates and countries for the Xbox One launch, which are:

 

  • 9/2: Chile and Colombia
  • 9/4: Japan
  • 9/5: Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Arab Emirates
  • 9/15: Israel
  • 9/23: Hong Kong, India, Korea, Singapore, South Africa, Taiwan
  • 9/23: China
  • 9/26: Russia
