On November 18, Internet users noticed that for unclear reasons, it was impossible to legally purchase the Microsoft Office software package in USA. On the same day, talks began about the complete withdrawal of Microsoft from the USA market and even linked the situation that had happened with imminent sanctions, which will take effect on November 22, 2018. Moreover, not only users of Microsoft office applications will suffer, but also gamers, since the Xbox One console may be withdrawn from sale. Should you start worrying? It is unlikely, since Microsoft has already assured that it is not going to leave the USA market.
All of the company's programs are still available for purchase in the Microsoft Store, except that the service refuses to accept payments other than dollars. The decision is connected with a new business approach, details of which, of course, were not named. You can buy the products of the American company for rubles at retail sites of Microsoft partners, such as DNS, M.Video, Eldorado, etc.
As for the Xbox One console and other gaming products of the company, to the delight of gamers, it will continue to be sold in the USA Federation.
The transition to the dollar system in the Microsoft Store did not go without unpleasant incidents. by an unknown error, all games in the online store could be purchased at a symbolic price of no more than $ 1. The bug was quickly fixed, but no one is going to withdraw games from those players who managed to take advantage of the unprecedented generosity of the auction.
