Xbox One Doesn’t Allow Gameplay In Every Country

/ 3 years ago


Do you travel? If so, you might not be able to travel with the new Xbox One, as it may prevent you from playing some games while in a non-supported country.

Gregor Ivezic from the UK asked Xbox Support’s twitter feed a very simple question.

“Xbox One will block activation of games if outside of the IP range of a supported country? What if I travel a lot? @XboxSupport”

Xbox Support 2 @XboxSupport2 responded to his question with a simple answer.

“@Gi4ouR You’ll be able to play when you return home. I travel with an Xbox 360 for road gaming. ^PS”

If you’re a console gamer, you likely spend the majority of time on your console, and you likely take it with you when you travel, apparently Xbox does not support users traveling with their Xbox, preventing them from playing their games in some countries.

Xbox One seems to have been designed so that you will not want to use another console, or even use your PC for gaming or anything else for that matter. At the same time, if you use any other device, you are able to use those devices with your Xbox One. Though Xbox has made some changes that many consumers may or may not like. Such as making you connect to the internet at least once every 24 hours for your Xbox to function, implementing a fee for used game registration.

What are your list of Pro’s and Cons for the new Xbox One, why do you like it, or hate it? Let me know in the comments below. Xbox One, Xbox 360 or Playstation 4, which way will you be leaning?

Xbox One has released a disclaimer for people who might decide to pre-order.

    It seems that the XBOX One is a complete and utter failure in terms of usability and user friendliness. Microsoft managed to make huge steps backwards and will undoubtedly lose a fair share of their users to Sony simply because the features of this new console are ridiculous. Not everyone has an internet connection and for those of us in the military it makes no sense to buy a system that we would be unable to use on deployments.
