“Xbox One games are not region locked”, Microsoft clarifies import stance

He added of payment details by country, “You can use one of the 13 digital marketplaces corresponding to our launch markets, assuming you have a valid payment instrument for those countries. Lots of people in Europe specifically travel, move, and visit family.

“Now, of course, if you were using Pre-Paid cards … You will still find that music and video content can be geo-restricted based on licensing. (e.g. Netflix works only in supported countries)”

It comes as this NeoGAF member posted a document supposedly leaked from Microsoft that breaks down – in detail – the company’s policy on importing and region issues.

How many things are they going to have to clarify stuff? So much changes and clarifications I can't remember shit. PS4 if you didn't exist I'd hate gaming.

PS4 has made so few changes because nearly everything was perfect. Honestly, I also lost count of how many things Microsoft have changed.

Septic1621d ago (Edited 1621d ago )

Honestly, you can't please anyone. Before, everyone was critiquing Microsft and their silence and inabiltity to clarify many elements of the X1. Now, its people moaning about people offering clarity? Seriously? Get a grip.

Penello is merely elaborating on the region-free nature of the console and the payment methods for the content. This isn't something you cry about but just read and understand. He just made a post on NeoGaf; its not like a whole press conference was held or anything.

Seriously...only the community on here would moan about someone offering clarity.

@Septic, I don't mind clarity, but MS aren't releaseing any new info, every story is JUST clarifing something they said before...

ElementX1621d ago (Edited 1621d ago )

You'd hate gaming if the PS4 didn't exist? Wow talk about PATHETIC! Fanboys say some of the dumbest sh_t sometimes. Just stop and think about it for a moment.... so if Sony never decided to create a PS4 you wouldn't be a gamer? What about the current gen consoles? Previous generations? Don't they mean anything? PCs? Handhelds? Your outlook and opinion on an entire industry relies solely on one device? Your statement is so absurd I can hardly wrap my head around the idiocy of it.

"This isn't something you cry about but just read and understand."

What would people here cry about if it weren't for inconsequential things? :)

Septic1621d ago

You tell me. Just read this completely senseless first post:

"How many things are they going to have to clarify stuff? So much changes and clarifications I can't remember shit. PS4 if you didn't exist I'd hate gaming."

Where to begin....

creatchee1621d ago


Lol I know. The ridiculousness of that is compounded for me, given the fact that I've been gaming for about 30 years. It's like some fanboys/trolls don't even try to be eloquent or persuasive anymore - hatred is enough for them and their ilk.

TomShoe1621d ago

Good. Still not buying it.

BallsEye1621d ago (Edited 1621d ago )

The thing is, MS is now being transparent about everything. They had their lesson. Sony didn't give us almost any details at all, which is scary. We know basicly nothing about ps4 yet.

christocolus1621d ago

There was really no need for that statement if you do not like the console then do not get it.. i think ms has done their best and yet gamers like you wont give it a rest...besides they are clarifying for those who intend to get the console not those who do not want your comment wasnt needed in the first place...

GameCom is the reboot of the x1 revel .. and ms choose to make it behind closed door just in case
OT: I think MS on right track to earn hardcore's forgiveness

Excalibur1621d ago

Another article where Microsoft has to "clarify" a previous statement...

Ripsta7th1621d ago

Better than staying quiet about iy

gaelic_laoch1621d ago

As usual everything is as clear as mud from M$

theWB271621d ago

I guess that kind of thing happens when you actually release information that has to be clarified. As opposed as the other way around...

Cherchez La Ghost1621d ago

People still whine when a person clarifies their selves?!
