Xbox Singapore Facebook Page Rebranded to Xbox SEA
If the name change alone isn’t enough to convince you, they recently posted an Age of Empires IV Fan Preview with Bahasa Malaysia audio on the newly-rebranded Facebook page. In fact, the title of the video itself is “Age of Empires: Pratonton Peminat” which literally translates to Age of Empires: Fan Preview.
For now however, Malaysia and other countries in Southeast Asia with exception to Singapore isn’t listed in the Xbox official region list, which you can view by clicking right here. This doesn’t mean that it will not expanding their list sooner or later. For now, we can’t confirm yet if it will be having an official presence but one thing’s for sure, such an occurrence would mean that they are seriously considering it.
Pokdepinion: If they want to take the next gen console wars seriously, they definitely need to expand their markets sooner rather than later. Sure, it may be tougher in Asia where PlayStation reigns supreme but if they don’t do anything to compete in those segments, then they will never stand a chance to dominate in the long run.
