Microsoft. Company with cultural sensitivity of Homer Simpson.MS is american company. As such its main focus is targeted towards home market. Take discounts, launch parties... Anything really. You name it. Then there are second trier countries. Not US, but big markets like Germany, U.K. etc. Those are the countries with big potential. MS can't be bothered to take care of customers the American way, but you still are able to buy movies through XO. Last and least important for MS are countries like the one I'm living in. Slovakia. Or Czech republic, Hungary etc. Here MS doesn't even tries to pretend it cares about customers. All you can do is buy and play games, but not movies for example. You can't even "buy" and watch free movies in those countries. For some time your location wasn't checked, so you could workaround of setting your location to US or UK and everything was fine. But not now. You try to set incorrect location and you will be informed about this fact. You can't even watch movies you already bought through XO store.You have a problem to register your credit card, because the system simply doesn't recognize postal code of european city of population 240k you're living in (yes. Seriously). Would you like to have interface of XO translated to language of those insignificant yet "supported" countries perhaps? Forget it mate. Or take all the issues with TV support of XO. People around the Europe had to wait until they were able to enjoy fully all the features of your new console, because some other people can't be bothered to check international standards valid outside of U.S..When it comes to media streaming, buying music and movies online, if you're living in one of those countries forget XO, go for Google chromecast for fraction of price of XO and you will have possibilities you can only dream about if you're stuck with XO. In those countries MS is some 5 years back compared to services provided by Google.ï»¿To discuss Kinect on XO is pointless really, even MS realized that XO will sell better without it, mainly because XO lacks interesting games and apps which would really put Kinect to good use.I bought my XO as early adopter with Kinect and I really wanted it to kick ass, but unfortunately I'm living in the wrong country.
