    Digital games' region restrictions


    So, I'm about to purchase some (digital copies of) games from Microsoft but it's not clear to me wether they're region locked or not. All the major cd key selling websites mark every game's region restriction, Microsoft doesn't. Does it mean that all of them are region free?

    The reason i asked this is I'm living in the UK now but I'm moving back to an EU country (Hungary) soon and i'd like to use these games back home too.

    Thanks for advance!

    :)

    How to buy digital versions of games for xbox 360

    What game is it you are trying to purchase? Sometimes it's restrictions on digital content and distribution in that region. It's possible to find a disc copy of that game that is compatible with the region of Xbox console you have.

    Will a game that I buy from the xbox one US site work here in AUstralia?

    US games used to work if you bought them digitally. I think it's restricted now regarding what regions you can buy from.

    Region

    Xbox One games do not have region restrictions. However, if he bought you a digital code as a gift using the new gifting feature then you won't be able to redeem that as gifting is currently only region specific.

    xbox one games region locked

    The Xbox One is region free, which means that if you purchase a disc game from anywhere in the world, you can play it on your console. The only exception is China, as their consoles are region locked to their region only.

    Digital content is a different matter. Some content is not available in certain regions, due to restrictions, not given a rating, etc, etc.

    Hi, im from colombia, and i want to know, why dont appear Ninja Gaiden Black In the Xbox One Store

    Unfortunately not all Xbox or Xbox 360 games were made available to purchase digitally in all regions. Usually due to restrictions in the area. It would have been something that was up to the developers though.
