    I get my console on the 23rd of November and was wondering if I could download any of the launch games.
    The Xbox One is not yet released in my region until march 2014...
    I hate Fifa 14 that's what I get with it and will be so disappointed if the marketplace doesn't work when I hook up the console.

    I can also order it on game.co.uk but then theres the risks of delay and it's 3-4 business days delivery.

    As for the region go's all Xbox Ones are region free out of the box, so I shouldn't see this being a problem just set your local to UK or USA, this may cause issues with the dlc though not to sure on how that works.

    Np bit off Google also found this,,

    In addition, anyone importing consoles from other countries will still be able to play any games released in other territories.

    Unlike the Xbox 360, the Xbox One will actually launch without any sort of region-locking.

    Provided you have the proper power converters, any Xbox One will work anywhere in the world with any officially released game.

    As all of the countries impacted by the delay are European, it’s not particularly difficult for early adopters to simply import a console from the revised list of launch countries.

    Keep in mind, marketplace purchases will only function with location-specific payment methods, so consider stocking up on pre-paid cards.
