  1. MS, Please remove Kinect region lock


    Hi,

    first of alI, I am really happy with my Xbox One. But, as a German who likes to play games in their orignal language, I find it quite frutrating that I can't set my console to English language while I have chosen Germany as my region, which I have to, in
    order to be able to buy and download stuff from the store. Even in games where you can choose the language in game (like Tomb Raider DE), I can't use English Kinect voice commands if my console's region is Germany. Hence, it would be really nice if I could
    have my region set to German and my system language set to English at the same time.

    :)

    US version of RB2

    Is the RB2 game from the US definitely region locked?
    I have to admit to the 360's use of region locking being the consoles biggest achilles heel imo, I'd love to be able to remove it

    I second that 100%!

    If there's some weird region-lock policy behind it, please make the reasons why you can't do it transparent, Microsoft! Another suggestion would be to force in-game language selection options on game developers or at least force them to inform us in their
    marketplace or dvd-cover gamedescription if their game supportst language selection. It's really weird to have to praise EA(!) out of all publishers for having language selection options in all their games. I for one will not buy any more games for my xbox
    one of that I don't know with certainty that it's playable in english without having to reboot twice (change to us/en region/language, reboot, play, change it back to german, reboot). I played Dead Rising 3 for only 2 hours since I bought it, because it's
    THAT annoying (there goes your DLC money! ...because of some stupid region settings!)

    Can't authorize payment option

    Microsoft system is just too heavy on its own, it could hardly float.

    I am sure this is related to Region Lock problem either because the buyer is in a blocked region, or has a bad IP Address that MS is not able to identify the region. Or perhaps MS records got screwed, they thought you are from Mars mimicking a Canada IP....

    MS Should simplify this XBOXLive, remove all those crap "Region Lock" and just allow everyone to buy whatever games they want wherever they are.

    Is The Xbox LIVE Code From Amazon Region Locked?

    Yes 12 month codes are region free - some 12 +1 cards are region locked.

    MS points are Region locked

    Game with Gold on XBOX ONE

    You forget games that are region locked cannot be removed the region locks are there because of a international laws on games that do prevent certain games from being distributed outside their regions specifically content laws

    B distribution

    Both means that it is out of ms hands

    Games like cod or halo that are regulated that's comes with games that have the m rating

    Even recent cases like gta 5 have it there is nothing that ms nor Sony can do about international laws

    I cant download almost anything because i live in cyprus and i cant choose my region to be cyprus

    well only region locked content would be an issue and you would have to get the correct ms points cards to purchase content as ms points are region locked by country
