Microsoft has a localization problem, with some regions (namely English-speaking regions) enjoying better support than others. We’ve written previously about the issue to try and bring attention to the problems, but it’s ultimately on Microsoft to begin to make improvements. Despite the problems, Xbox enjoys passionate fans all over the world, and many regions have vibrant community sites in various languages full of news, reviews, and other resources.
We’re starting to collect links to all the major communities in every language as and when we find them. Take a look at our growing list below.
