    Is the Xbox One or One X Region Locked?


    Hello, I will be moving from Japan to the U.S. If I purchase an Xbox one or a One X from Japan, will I be able to use it in the U.S and play U.S games? Or are the Xbox One and One X region Locked?

    Xbox one x

    No reason why not,all the other xbox ones are region free so I can't see why the xbox one x wont be.

    The Xbox One X has the serial number on the outside of the box in some regions beside the retail barcode.

    No, the console from a disc perspective is not region locked. And baring a plug with a ground (which I do not think the US plug has) the power adapter should also work in Japan as the power requirements are the same. The only think you will need to make
    sure to do is change your purchase region to Japan from the US to purchase content locally there for digital games.

    Thank you for your answer. One more follow up question. I downloaded a digital version of Halo 5 on an old xbox one when it came out. Will I be able to re download Halo 5 and any other games and or content that I purchased digitally on my old Xbox one? Once
    I change my region of course.

    Hi IsaacMaes,

    You will be able to used in it the U.S. Just change your region once you moved. Here's how:

    Change your country/region on Xbox One

    1. Sign in to your Xbox One console.
    2. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
    3. Select Settings > All Settings > System > Language & location.
    4. Select your new location from the Location list, and then select Restart now.

    If you can’t change country or region, it might be for one of these reasons:

    • You changed the country or region within the last three months.
    • Your account is suspended. For example, the credit card on a subscription has expired, or your subscription has a balance due.
    • You’re legally a minor in your current country or region and won’t be a minor in the new region, or vice-versa.

    Note

    The funds in your Microsoft account will not move with you. Be sure to spend the money in your Microsoft account before you change your account location. We can’t transfer money between regions.

    Xbox
    • If Xbox Live Gold isn’t available in your new country or region, your current subscription will remain active but might not work anymore. If it doesn’t and you want to stop paying for it, cancel
      the subscription
      .
    • Your gamertag, unlocked achievements, and the rest of your Xbox profile info all move with you.
    • Any time left on your Xbox Live Gold subscription will be moved with your account to the new country or region.
