Microsoft has confirmed that games launched for Xbox One will not be region locked. Offering a small glimmer of hope to people who are in the eight markets where the console recently got delayed.

“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,” Microsoft told Eurogamer.

“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.”

This at least provides a workaround for fans who are stuck in one of the eight markets where they Xbox One recently got delayed until 2014.
