Microsoft have reversed their policies on region locking and digital rights management. The next Xbox will now be region free and allow game discs to be used freely without being tied to a particular account.
We’ll still have to change discs, but frankly we gamers need all the exercise we can get.
Kudos to Microsoft for responding to the community like this. With the Xbox One a viable choice again, expats everywhere now face a touch choice when compiling their Christmas lists this year.
