It's nice to see Sweden on there since I have an XBL friend who's been waiting for the chance to purchase the system. I'm kind of surprised that Japan is on this roll out though. I would have thought they would have saved them for last.

My guess is that E3 will bring some game release for September to coincide with this. They'd be dumb to let the launch of the console squeak out with no hype in those regions.
