You guys do realise that you can only play xbox ones in the country they're bought in ?

The xbox one games are not region locked. However, the xbox one console IS.
Meaning you can't play online in the country you live in if your console is from another country.

This also means that you can't download the Day one patch, which renders your console unplayable.

you're both wrong.  ..or both right.  depends on how you want to dice that.


yeah and the payement option is tied to your XBL account not your console.... again I'll guarantee you that my US console will work in France with french services and content with my french XBL account and CC and my US account will be able to buy content on the US marketplace with my US XBL account and my US CC and if I want to access service I just have to power up my VPN service...

awesome for you.. you apparently live in france which is a teir 1 country.  what about they guys the in holland and brussels (to which assasist was responding)?  are their live accounts being paid for with a CCs associated with a teir 1 country too or will they run into the issue MS clearly detailed out to those types of customers?  ..and if they can't access live how are they going to access that manditory day-1 patch?

Guess in last resort i will recharge my account using french Live prepaid cards.

Now, should I order them in advance..... mmmmh

Amazing to see how many will still manage to get their xbox ^_^

What he means is that you need a Xbox Live Account in a supported country to play online... just create an UK account and problem solve.


But apparently he is wrong. The payment method is the only thing linked to a territory.

Many thanks for the source btw



Always been a big fan of Xbox, they create a certain vibe around gaming that I like. Also, best launch titles since Dreamcast :).
