If worrying about the Xbox One watching, listening and feeling every movement of your body - with the German government even worried about it - then there's something else to worry about: the Xbox One will be region locked.
In a world of digital media, I don't see why the Xbox One should be region locked, but it will be according to a Microsoft representative who confirmed the news with Digital Trends. The Microsoft rep said: "Similar to the movie and music industry, games must meet country-specific regulatory guidelines before they are cleared for sale. We will continue to work with our partners to follow these guidelines with Xbox One".
I'm disappointed with this region locking news, as it means here in Australia I can be charged $100 for a game that is sold elsewhere in the world for $30. Microsoft, just what are you thinking?
