No more region swapping.
Clever gamers who are currently swapping XBL accounts to access international content for their pleasure may want to be careful, as Microsoft has announced that it will be strengthening its Xbox 360 Marketplace territorial restrictions, preventing users from accessing content that is currently unavailable in their country.
Word from Gamerscore is that Microsoft is trying to crack down on region swapping account holders in an attempt to avoid violations of laws and distribution regulations in other countries, explaining that some countries have legal restrictions when it comes to distributing certain content.
This comes as a huge blow to virtually all countries besides America, where most countries have limited movie, television and trailer content – and more importantly for Australian gamers, we still don't have TMNT available on XBLA.
The changes will take place next week.
