This is a good start…
Some games now have the support of being hosted locally: the Australian Azure Servers will currently be compatible with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Forza 5, Forza Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive.
Jeremy Hinton, Business Group Lead for Interactive Entertainment at Microsoft Australia, said:
“It has been a very exciting year for both Xbox and the industry. We set out to deliver amazing experiences on the Xbox One platform, and are humbled by the support and positive response from Aussie gamers to the updates over the past 12 months. Today’s announcement of Australian based Xbox Live servers addresses the most requested feature from local gamers. We are excited to give our fans the best online gaming experience available, just in time for the Holidays.”
