Microsoft's Xbox team in Russia has confirmed that the Xbox One console will go on sale in that country on September 26, around the time that the console will also go on sale in many more countries around the world.

Microsoft had previously announced in May that the Xbox One would expand to 27 more countries in September, but now we are getting more specific launch dates for each country. In addition to Russia, the console will go on sale in India on September 23, That's also the same date the Xbox One will go on sale in China.

We will likely get more information about launch date for more countries on that list on Tuesday morning as part of Microsoft's Gamescom press event in Germany. Do you think expanding the markets for the Xbox One will help boost sales for the console?
