Your Xbox One is Now a Region-Free Xbox 360

Post  KENT HAMMER on Mon Nov 16, 2015 11:41 am

Hello achievement friends! I have some good news for you. With the recent "New Xbox One Experience" and "Backward Compatibility" updates that launched on Thursday, something extra magical has happened: Xbox One has now become a region-free Xbox 360 for the applicable backcompat titles. This means that if a game on the backcompat program has more than one achievement list due to a regional "stack," you can now import the other version(s) and use them on your Xbox One without issue. Previously, you'd be required to purchase an entirely new console that matched the game's region (NTSC, PAL, or NTSC-J) to play games outside of your home region. No longer! What's more: you only have to buy any DLC once. If you own the Borderlands DLC on your home account, it will work with any version of the game.

Currently there are five games of the initial 104 that have "stackable" achievement lists. You can play Japanese versions of Borderlands, Gears of War 2, and Just Cause 2, the German version of Rainbow Six Vegas 2, and the European version of Wolfenstein 3D. As more games are added to the backcompat program, likely more stackable versions will be playable as well.

That could be a massive bonus for the Cheevo hunters and scorewhores out there.

Good news. Wonder how many versions of Avatar and Shite At the Museum there are? Very Happy

I believe there are shit loads of Japanese dating games with mega easy cheevs. Might not be cheap getting them though I guess and they might not make the backcompat list.

That's great news ..... especially as I have most of the Japanese only shooters. I have an old style Japanese 360 which these days I'm frightened to use in case of the RROD. Now, are any of Cave's offerings in the backwards compatibility list yet?! Laughing

There should be some cave shooters in there at some point down the line I would have thought.
