Most of the social features are not applicable to me but I can see how they could be good for people who are into multiplayer gaming. Language and region unlock should have been there in the first place, but good to see that it's here now. Game / app collection screen - small change as far as i am concerned. Cortana - not sure how it will work with the region/language unlock. It's not available to NZ on Windows 10, so I am not expecting it to be available for NZ on the Xbone either. Overall.. nothing really terribly exciting.

With the Language and Region Unlock, can we hopefully get access to Chinese marketplace. So far only one of the Chinese region games (Monkey King Saga) is getting worldwide release.
Hackers are those that push the boundaries of comprehensive systems, not groups like Anonymous and Lizard Squad which are known as "Crackers".

This only unlocks the ability to change your language from the default for your country. China's laws mean MS can't make it region free like it can literally every other region.

When will they let us delete 0 Gamerscore games?
I might just stroll down there and code it myself. I mean I programmed a Pong game in C# in 2008 for university how hard can it be.

Can someone explain what the big deal about language and region lock is?
Do they just force the local language on you?
I'm Irish and its just always been English.

Yes, they force your language with region. In fact you select your language and then the region that have it. For example if I want my region to be Brazil. I first have to select language to Português and then I have the option of Brazil and Portugal.

This means all games that have multi language support will show menus and subtitles in portuguese. Some will eve have audios in portuguese. Problem is I like to play games in English. Sometimes you find poor translations and even worse dubbing so I just prefer to play them in English.

What about an option to permanently disable vibration through the console configurations instead of waiting to see if a game has or has not such option? That's pretty basic too.

All the other 'big' changes are perfurmery, as we say here.
To do or not to do. THAT is the question.

Yeah my sister uses my Xbox to play games on her own account and it still adds it to my played list even though I wasn't playing. Frustrating and strange. Would love to knock them off the list it messes with my ocd.

What about playing your own music while playing a game like on 360? It's pretty retarded that it wasn't a feature in the first place. I miss blasting Metallica whilst shooting shit up! rock
