Will the Xbox One do well outside North America?

Seeing as people outside of America probably aren't as forgiving as Mericans to Microsoft after the anti user policies(ha auto correct says Mericans is a real word).
And that most of the features on the Xbox one won't be availible outside at launch, the console it's self will only be availible in 13 countries at launch, 22 by 2014, still leaving good portion of the world without a chance to buy one.
It seems like this thing is focasing most of it's power in America, which isn't a bad thing, but it feels like Sony will put up more of a fight in the States this time around.

Well 360 sold 33 million in Europe so its only like 16% behind murica.

also regions don't mean jack. 360 was 31 countries. Kinect 15. Kinect led by 6.5 million units after 6 weeks.

Doing "well" is relative, I suppose. It's poised to take the #2 place, which isn't so bad unless you consider where the brand was last generation.

Take into account that Europe doesn't have the home to team loyalty that Americans have. And the fact that again the Xbox one is being heavily promoted as American console. Also a good lot of people tend to forget Pre orders tend to be mainly the devoted gamers. The Xbox one still has that bad air that I think will hurt, especially to the average consumer, lot of people forget that the Xbox one made the news with it's policies.

They aren't launching in enough countries before PS4 for that to happen.

I think if we're counting Europe, it will do really well outside of America. There's no doubt that the PS4 is going to be more successful at launch worldwide, but in a year or two, I think they'll be neck and neck in terms of sales, discounting Asia of course.
