Xbox Live coming to nine new countries

Tuesday, 15th June 2010 14:02 GMT By Joe Anderson


Microsoft has announced that nine more countries are to join Xbox Live

Brazil, Chile, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Russia and South Africa are the latest countries to be added to the line-up.

Up until now, these countries have been unable to take part in games online or use any of the consoles other online services, effectively leaving them with a console that is half as useful as it ought to be. Those nine countries can start celebrating though because they will soon be able to show their gaming skills off the World.

In an added bonus, Australia will soon be able to watch live television and video-on-demand programming on Xbox Live, thanks to a deal struck with cable TV provider FoxTell.

Thanks, Edge.

    Good for you Czech boy. Here in Brazil we don’t have Xbox Live and everyone cracks their 360′s so they can play pirated games. So I guess yes, we are in Kongo…

    there is always lag especially if you play outside your country.

    #16 5 years ago

    There’s lag in every single online game, bar none.

    It’s a simple fact of physics…
