In a significant development for gaming enthusiasts in Malaysia, there are strong indications that the Xbox Series X could soon be officially available in the local market. The latest clue comes from the appearance of the Xbox Series X in the SIRIM database, a certification body in Malaysia.

Xbox Series X to Officially Arrive in Malaysia?

The certification applicant is listed as Ingram Micro Malaysia, suggesting that they might be the official distributor for the Xbox Series X in the region. The model description in the entry corresponds to the Xbox Series X’s model number, 1882. Notably, the approval date for the device is noted as December 20 of the previous year.

Interestingly, the original and updated Series S models, with model numbers 1881 and 1883, are absent from the database entry. This raises questions about their availability in the local market, and whether they might be introduced at a later date.

For Malaysian gamers eagerly anticipating the Xbox Series X, this development brings hope for an official release. The potential arrival of the Xbox Series X could also pave the way for the availability of Xbox Game Pass in the region, providing a comprehensive gaming experience. However, considering the historical gap between the announcement and actual launch of Xbox-related products in Malaysia, it’s wise to brace for a potential wait.

As of now, Microsoft has not officially commented on this development. We will continue to seek updates and keep you informed if there are any new developments in this exciting gaming landscape for Malaysia.


Pokdepinion: This would present a huge shift for the Xbox brand not just in Malaysia but also the Southeast Asian region. I hope this comes true, and maybe other companies might follow in as well.
