Microsoft Reportedly Region-Locking Digital Games on Xbox One

Posted on Monday, February 24 @ 05:07:59 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


It appears that Microsoft may have started region-locking downloadable games and DLC on Xbox One. According to Gamepur, the lock allegedly went into effect last month, removing game licenses from users' accounts. Gamers who try accessing a game that was purchased using a download code from another region have been getting error code 0x87de07d1.

A number of Xbox One owners have lamented the issue on the Xbox Support forum. Here's the post of one particular user:

I am getting the error code 0x87de07d1 on my digital download copy of Forza 5. I have also seen in other posts that at least 2 other people have this error on Dead Rising 3. This is a digital copy of the game that has worked fine for several weeks. It is now acting as though I do not own the game. I have tried turning the system on/off, switching profiles etc but nothing is helping. In the xbox store Forza 5 is displaying the option to buy for £49.99, where it would usually say Play, as I do own the game. I also have a digital copy of FIFA 14 which is working fine, and displays 'play' in the xbox store, this shows that I am definitely logged into my xbox live gold account. Originally, I only owned Forza 5 on disc, but later purchased the digital download version. However, I have only ever owned the digital version of FIFA 14, I have never owned a disc version of FIFA 14, so maybe this has something to do with why FIFA works fine but Forza doesn't.

Have you run into any of these issues? If so, please let us know in the comments below.
