Amist all the incredible announcements made at MIX'11 yesterday, one that caught everyone's eye through continuous demand and request was the amount of new countries where developers can register in the Marketplace. The above image shows all the current countries in green, with the added 8 in yellow, which include:
- Czech Republic
- South Africa
- South Korea
Superb news for developers who reside in the above, especially if you're experiencing issues when attempting to connect to the Marketplace etc. Are you affected by the above inclusion?

But can users buy applications from the marketplace in those countries? Pointless to just fuel the US market and MS's pocket through dev fees and ignore others, any info on MP availability to users in new countries?
I'm included, but I think I can't buy apps yet from Hungary, as my Zuna acc is set to US, because otherwise I could not download free apps. And as far as I know, there is no option to move a Zune acc to another country.
Was it exciting being "amist" all of those new announcements these past few days? :P
Can anyone confirm whether marketplace is available on the phone in those countries.
