Posted on October 12, 2010, Phil Owen Xbox Live Expanding to Nine New Countries
Those of us who have been using Xbox Live for the better part of a decade have come to take the service for granted, and it’s easy for us to forget that Xbox Live doesn’t exist in many places, as only 26 countries currently have access to the service.
But the people of nine new countries will finally be able to make use of the totally awesome ability to fill their hard drives with game trailers. Those countries are: Russia, Poland, South Africa, Greece, Czech Republic, Hungary, Brazil, Colombia, and Chile. November 10 is the day you folks will want to remember. I trust you’ll all, on that day, download piles of Mass Effect 2 DLC.
I’m very happy about this, partly because bringing Xbox Live to new places feels a lot like bringing religion to the savages, and that always worked out really well. But I’m mostly happy about this because it means I might actually get to make use of my Portuguese fluency.
