Ironically no one whines that the Japanese company Sony is also catering towards America. Then again Sony can do no wrong with some people.
Actually I think a better comparison is how Sony caters to Japan at times, releasing certain games and system designs/colors only in Japan. Back in 2011 they released the 320gb PS3 in Japan first with no mention at the time of a US release. Companies give special attention to their country of origin sometimes, big deal. As far as I know they're at least trying to bring all those X1 features to other places.
