Ordering import games is a fun hobby, though some consoles are region-locked, which prevents these titles from being played. However, those who buy the Xbox One later this year won't run into this problem.
Microsoft explained to Eurogamer today that the Xbox One will officially be region free, so owners can play their imports without any hassle whatsoever.
"When the console launches this November, we will support Xbox One in 13 markets. Xbox One may be used in all countries, including the non-launched markets. In addition, Xbox One games are not region locked. Any Xbox One game purchased at retail can be used in any country on any Xbox One," said the company in a statement.
That doesn't mean Xbox Live games will be region free, though. "That said, there needs to be a valid payment method corresponding to a supported launch country in order for any transactions to occur over Xbox Live, and some content may not be accessible outside launch markets due to geographic content restrictions imposed by content right holders."
The Xbox One will arrive on store shelves this fall.
