I may be passing on Microsoft’s console now, for other reasons, but this has to be the biggest FUD ever. There have been some rumors and some information that Microsoft themselves had confirmed, but others like this are complete BS.
Due to the way Microsoft has handled the Xbox One console policies, games can not be activated if you live in an unsupported region. This also appears to be true within the US where only certain states will be able to enjoy the Xbox One at launch. We spoke with a Microsoft representative about this decision.
