Reports: Improved Region Switching Coming to Xbox LIVE
Microsoft is finally taking steps to improve the experience of those users of Xbox LIVE who travel and would like to take their LIVE account with them.
According to tips sent to Neowin, Starting this month users will be able to circumvent the rather exhausting process of moving the localized account from region to region and instead be taken through an automated system that should make the process as quick as a few mouse clicks. Unfortunately if their tipster is to believed, (and we think it makes perfect sense), you won’t be able to take access to any content when you’ve switched an account to another region -instead only your cache of Microsoft Points, achievements, tenure, and Gold subscription will be able to go on holiday with you.
Right now, we’ve heard no confirmation on this from the folks in Redmond but you can bet we will the moment we hear anything more.
