    Region lock question


    Hi everyone, I haven't been involved in the Xbox community for a while now (I pretty much stopped using my 360 after halo reach) but lately I've been considering getting an Xbox one for my lounge room. The 4 main exclusive games I'm interested in are Titanfall,
    Sunset Overdrive, halo 2 anniversary and Quantic Break, I think these games would warrant the purchase of the console. My question is if I import any of these games from America would they work on an Australian xbox one? (I live in Australia), is there any
    sort of region lock wether it's digital or not? and will I have any trouble with DLC or multiplayer?

    :)

    You wont have any problems with region locks when you get an XB1, because both the console and games are region free. Only problem you will have is the power supply once you return to America.

    Region Lock Question

    For games yes. You would need an American credit card or pre paid card to purchase digitally. Microsoft doesn't own movies or music, so DVDs, blurays, or CDs may still be region locked.

    For the power supply, just buy a new Austrilian Xbox 360 one when you're out there. Then you should a good to go.

    Im confused, sorry. I need to know if i buy a XB1 in the US and move to the UK how would it work if they say it has no region lock.

    You need to have a payment method for the country the Xbox was bought it OR use a pre paid card. But the XBL market is tied to wherever you set the Xbox up to work in.

    Region lock question

    As far as the One is concerned I am not sure but there won't be any problems with the 360.

    .

    American console, American games? All good. You said you weren't looking to buy any more, so that's not a problem and should that change you can import them from the US.

    .

    You may indeed run into problems with the voltage/plug type though. I'm not massively familiar with this but I would do some research as to what you can do about it.

    I don't believe American plugs look like that :p
