They should've released it separately like Sony and Nintendo did (for the most part) and devoted all their resources in one region first and then release the next huge batch in other european regions after.

But i'm sure Microsoft was worried about losing sales to the PS4 if they released way later in Europe but they potentially lost XBOX One customers by not devoting enough shipments to the U.S first. (then again since there's still some stock left in stores maybe it didn't matter)

i'm sure when Sony announced they were releasing the PS4 just a week later, it put a monkey wrench on Microsoft's plans to do that with their XBOX One release dates.

Sure it's good to release worldwide first but those X1 worldwide sales won't look so amazing come Friday

Seems like a growing trend...graphics, fps, resolution etc etc
An all digital future is readily available for PS4. If you wish to download your entire library digitally, you can and its without the anti-consumer bullcrap.
