As if the recent delay in smaller European regions wasn’t enough, they’re also (only initially) going to be missing out of the voice control bandwagon. The functionality, which has been much-hyped by Microsoft, will only be available in the UK, US, Canada, France and Germany at launch. This can be found in the small-print of the ‘Get More With Xbox One’ section of the official Xbox website.

Are Microsoft facing larger issues with Kinect? Only recently, Microsoft rep Albert Penello revealed that the Xbox One delay in some markets was due to issues with Kinect localisation, rather than supply.
