Microsoft has made it easier for soldiers posted around the world to play on Xbox Live.

A Military States billing address option can now be selected by the AA (Armed Forces of America), AE (Armed Forces of Europe) and AP (Armed Forces Pacific).

A soldier's geographical location should no longer hinder their gaming.

"We hope this makes it easier for the men and women in the United States Armed Forces to stay connected to the Xbox Live community," wrote Xbox Live's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb.
