    Backward compatibility game language

    Usually game language will be controlled by the region that the Xbox is set in, but with some 360 Games these could be regionally restricted. e.g. will only provide you the alternative language based on the region it was sold.

    But in general it usually take the region the xbox is set to.

    xbox one s controller

    Are you referring to Design Labs controllers or the standard controller?

    Design Labs controllers are only shipped to certain regions.

    Standard controller will be available in any region that the console is sold in.

    I'm having issues in redeeming codes for Gears of War and Gears of War 3 when I bought GOW 4 Ultimate Edition Version.

    FYI for the best experience with xbox live your account region must reflect your actual region.

    This includes most games with gold for 360 as they tend to be region locked

    Gears 1 and 3 are region locked due to the international laws controlling them

    error 80150017

    Well if you look at rhe 2nd post the answer is right there

    Your account region has to match your actual region

    But since your actual region isjt an xbox live region nothing can be done

    As it is controled by international laws and disribution rights

    Problem with my Xbox Account w/ Windows 8

    Ok problem solved.

    I had the region setting in Windows 8 control panel set to a different country than my Xbox Live Account. I had to change the region in the control panel to be the same, then I had to uninstall the Xbox Games app, and finally reinstall it. It worked fine
    after that.
