Xbox ONE Games Are Not Region Locked

Everybody out there who wants to be able to import their physical video games from other countries, you are in luck. Microsoft has announced that the Xbox ONE next-gen gaming console will play any country’s video games in its system. This means if you are in India, United States, Europe, Australia, or anywhere else for that matter – you’ll be able to import video games from your friends or import retailers like PlayAsia to play games early when release dates allow for it, play uncensored games from the bloody Americas, or even play games that have been completely banned in your country. Long live the cause of the gamers.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition Delayed

Microsoft has announced through Major Nelson that the Xbox 360’s physical release of Minecraft, dubbed Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, will not be releasing on time with its scheduled release date.

Check out the Tweet below from Major Nelson which announced this to the world publicly:
