Does XBOX ONE purchased in US work in Europe w/o limitations?

Hello, I live in Finland and am planning to purchase a XBOX ONE console from either UK or US as present to my son. Is there any regional limitation to XBOX ONE console or games? I.e. will a XBOX purchased in US work in Finland? I understand the difference in power and power plugs. However I would like to know if there is any limitation to games, etc.? I believe that in previous generatíons there was difference arising from things like PAL or NTCS systems etc. Thx for any feedback on this!

Yes, you will be able to use it anywhere. You just change the language and locale in the settings.

Hey there Inks!

While Maximum and 24 are both correct, keep in mind that Finland is not an Xbox One-Supported Xbox Live Country, so your son could run into issues connecting to Xbox Live, downloading updates, purchasing/downloading content, as well as setting up any repairs.

The console itself is region free, but we always suggest using it in an Xbox One-Supported Xbox Live Country.

Let us know if you have any other questions and we'll be happy to assist. ^_^

Hey bdoody,

If you are playing in a different region than where you purchased your console, you will most likely want to purchase a new Power Supply as the voltages vary from country to country and using a PSU not rated for your country can cause serious problems. You can find more information in this article About the Xbox One Power Supply.

You can get in contact with your local Phone Support team to inquire about purchasing a power supply unit. That would be the only hardware you need when setting up in your new locale.

I can confirm it. US is 100-127V while EU is 200-240V. Both are 12A * 17.9V = 215W.

Microsoft will release Power Brick as an accessories next year (planned).

Xbox One games are all region free, you can buy one from local stores.
