Report: Xbox One Pushed into Q3 2014 in Delayed Territories?

According to sources, Xbox One might have been pushed further into 2014 in delayed territories, having already had the brakes put on the console's launch until next year back in August.
Since then, there has been no news on when affected regions would be getting Xbox One, but "trusted sources" close to Gamereactor suggest that Microsoft could be subjecting Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Holland, Norway, Russia, Sweden, and Switzerland to further delay. Apparently the same source told the site news of the original delay before it was made official.
The sources state that Xbox One could see release in some of these territories as late as Q3 2014, adding a potential extra nine or ten months to what has already been a protracted delay, despite the console releasing in 13 of the 21 planned regions on November 22nd.
It could be that Microsoft is having issues in providing enough supply to fulfil demand, or localisation could be proving problematic, but whatever the case, a further delay could be on the cards. Microsoft has yet to announce anything official on this front, so for now, we'd take the report with a pinch of salt.
