Hello.

I am trying to purchase FM7 digital version through Amazon UK, but when I try to proceed to checkout, I am told that this item is only available to customers inside UK.
My country doesn't have an Amazon, so I can't buy a "local" version.

Is FM 7 region locked? Are Xbox One games region locked?

"When the console launches this November, we will support Xbox One in 13 markets. Xbox One may be used in all countries, including the non-launched markets. In addition, Xbox One games are not region locked. Any Xbox One game purchased at retail can be used in any country on any Xbox One," said Microsoft in a statement.

"That said, there needs to be a valid payment method corresponding to a supported launch country in order for any transactions to occur over Xbox Live, and some content may not be accessible outside launch markets due to geographic content restrictions imposed by content right holders."

Despite the date, that's probably still true, and you should still be able to redeem a digital code you obtain. However, if Amazon won't sell it, that's probably a question for Amazon.

You should be able to buy it from the Windows Store. It will work both on PC and Xbox.

No Xbox One or even Xbox backward compatible games are region locked. What's happening is most likely it is not yet available for pre-ordering in the UK. That is the only logical conclusion I can come to because as I said, no current generation console games are region-locked. Thing of the past.

The payment method used can cause this if a card is used and the card billing address is outside the UK....

Although further checking suggests that they are now allowing this for some countries....
