Xbox one is region free. Im in the UK but have a Canadian, Hungery, Hong kong and russian wallets/accounts set up so i can get much cheaper games than uk. Very easy to do you just buy gift cards for the region you want Eg USA gift cards and then create a USA wallet/account. Im sure theres a guide on here if not google it.

    Got the AC Syndicate Season Pass for free by ordering from Ubishop. Also got a 20% discount for 100 Uplay points (and earned 88 points for the purchase). Free shipping from AU to NZ, and arrived on release day. :)

    It really is that simple for Xbox One. And if you have Gold, you can grab the GwG from each region.

    will the price for "Layers of Fear" later (when it's 100% done) be the same £10.39?

    when will xbox live/microsoft pull it's finger out it's ar*e and have a univesal price for all games. I live in England and ass creed syndicate is priced at £54.99 where as in U.S it's $59.99. At a rough estimate that is only about £38 so where does the other £20ish go. It is the same game after all with no extra DLC. Anyone know ??????

    That's $59.99 minus the various state's taxes.

    FailedSeppuku said:let's not forget that British get paid more than Americans, so you work less to earn the same game or something, so although you're paying more you have to do less to earn that money and therefore they equal a similar price, it's been explained in here before by someone who 'knows' economics.

    Also does $59.99 include sales tax? or is that added on after, each State has a different tax don't they?

    But New Zealand though .... RIP in peace sweet Kiwi Dollars
    Do they? Every single instance I've seen is that Americans only make less the more lucrative the field...

    So the average American makes more than Brits.

    I plan to buy it now so it's cheaper, but wait for it to be finished and have achievements before I play it.

    Early Access is coming to Xbox? :/

    Early access has been here some time now, they announced it in E3, think this is the 5th game now?

    MC PHILABUSTA said:Well I don't like this !Why ever not? It's the equivalent of an open beta and allows the devs to make fixes and improvements to the game based on real players' feedback. Rather than releasing something potential unbalanced, broken or features light. What are the possible negatives?

    While Layers of Fear looks cool I'm not that comfortable with:

    "Note: This game is a work in progress. It may or may not change over time and may not release as a final product. Please purchase only if you are comfortable with the current state of the game."

    Kind of crazy that they are willing to sell you a game with bugs instead of fixing them before release.
    Shoot em' up!!!

    That's now what they're doing, its a game in early access.
