Setiing console and game language to English without changing the country

Hi,

first of all, I am from Germany. I want to play all of my games in English, but the Xbox One only lets me set the language to English if I also choose an English speaking country in the settings. But I can't do that because then I don't have access to the German Xbox-Store anymore. Instead, I can only access the store of the country chosen in the settings (e.g. US, Australia, UK etc.). So, to sum it all up, my question is: how can I cahnge the system language without changing the country in the settings?

Hello,

You can change your Xbox Live account language without changing your country only if your country or region supports multiple languages (for example, Canada).

Germany supports only German.

Hope this answers your question.

Well, this is very unsatisfactory I have to say. I absolutely  want to play all my games in English. I always do. It sounds ridiculous in German. Is there a way to set the language for a game individually?

If I am really forced to play all games in German I might consider getting a console from a different manufacturer. This is one of the most important things for me.

I really really hope an option to change the language for games will be added in the near future. I love my Xbox One and really enjoy the cool features and games in offers, and I absolutely do not want to part with it, but playing games in German totally breaks immersion and grates on my ears.

I totally agree. This was possible on the 360, and I really don't understand why it has been removed for xb1. I am English and live in France, and for me playing the games in their original language is an enormous part of the gaming experience.

Please allow users to choose a language independently from the location.

I agree with everybody here. I am an Italian, I just got Dead Rising 3 from the UK and I'd like to play it in English since often the dubbing/translations are terrible.

It was possibile on the 360, I don't understand why we can't do it on the X1.

Microsoft, please fix this issue!

I just bought an xbox one in Hong Kong.  If Microsoft doesn't give me a logical explanation as to why I can't change MY PERSONAL LANGUAGE to the language I actually speak, I am taking back my newly purchased xbox one, and buying a PS4.

Ps4 has not forced foreign languages on their users.  WHY WOULD THEY?  WHY HAS MICROSOFT DONE THIS?

Please Microsoft, let me know if I should change my system or not.

"this is an old thread by now. If you need assistance regarding xbox live service you should start a new thread"

cant find a better thread for this. Its not about XBox Live but your language settings

Hi MSFT, this is not acceptable - there is no good excuse why game language and Menue/Voice/Store Country should not be decoupled

"Germany supports only German"

that would be a poor Design. There are Millions of People living here whos 1st language is NOT german and there are Millions who prefer originol Soundtracks - especially when the german one is so poorly done as with current launch title.

It was no problem with 360, its none with PS3 nor PS4

Thanks for listening and changing this ASAP
