Will it work in Hong Kong?

I got an xbox one as a Christmas gift ( early yes) while I'm visiting the United States. However, I live full time in Hong Kong right now, can I use this overseas in Asia (yes, I would need to find a new power brick)? Will the console itself function as long as I buy games region encoded for North America?

I believed the XBOX ONE not out yet. And you can not got on LIVE at this time. And you have to wait for XBOX ONE come out there. But to you question. Yes. But you need the day one update. And not all LIVE area are not on XBOX ONE LIVE yet.

The console will work in Hong Kong provided you have the right type of power supply. No need to buy only North American games as the xbox one games are not region locked. Any game from any country will work on any console

Hey UPVILLAGE,
 

It is best to purchase a console in the region that you are planning on using it in. If your region is not supported yet then the console will not work.

sorry if that is not the answer you were looking for but stay tuned to Xbox news or Xbox.com and hopefully soon it will be supported in that region.

Hi Mister Urkel,

Thanks for getting back to me.  Can you clarify what you mean by won't work?  Is it just a matter of voltage (my apartment has step down transformers to handle US appliances), or is it the XBOX Live stuff?  Or will games not play at all?

Thanks!

UPVILLAGE, if Xbox Live is available at your country (for xbox 360) then your Xbox One will be work as well.

I'm, from Poland where Xbox One wasn't launched yet, but xbox 360 is fully supported - there is no problem with Xbox One either. I had to replace the power cord but this was so simple because it is exchangeable (typical PC cable :)

@ReaperLivepl

and then what ? You region is set either to US or UK, you have to buy scratch cards via Amazon or other 3rd party resellers because I'm pretty sure they won't allow you to use credit card etc.

My account region is set to Poland but there was no option to set it into Xbox One - I had to chose one of the available regions during configuration of X1 (I chose UK). I cannot use Polish scratch cards since it would add money in Polish currency which is NOT converted into Pounds. I have some money in Polish currency at my account - I can't use it.

However, I was able to add my paypal account (you can add or change the payment options at https://billing.microsoft.com and you CANNOT change/add it throught the Xbox One - that's strange, I know).

Once you add your paypal accout it will become visible at your Xbox One.

With my paypal account I have related my typical Polish credit card (actually it's not even credit card, it's debit card with internet payment option).

And it works, I already bought BF4 Premium, which is perfectly working.

PS. That's right, I cannot use my debit card directly (without PayPal) since on my card is Polish address and my xbox one force on my to add UK address while I'm adding info about my card. I'm pretty sure, though, I could use UK scratch card.

i have a question to any members or staff that can help..

i am from hongkong where the official xbox one asian version is not yet out but x360 is fully supported.

my account has some 40 hk dollars(enough for cheap arcade games)...now if i log on to xbox one and choose usa as my region(due to the initial setup of the xbx one) will that mean my account has now already migrated to usa region and my 40 hk dollars are no more?what happens if i go back to my x360 with the GODs that i purchased,can i still play them even if my account region has changed...

im so confused about this...

any help would be appreciated..
