Ultimately this will depend on a few of points

1) That you want the game enough to jump through a few hoops to get it at a fraction of the UK price.

2) That your credit card provider doesn't block the transaction.

3) That you are a member of the xbox preview program.

The method is simple, if you are a member of the preview program you can select the Hong Kong locale in the settings, and then browse the Hong Kong store, this is all in English.

Diablo III is available on there for 284HKD, which as a direct exchange conversion equates to £22.10, your credit card provider will probably have either a different exchange rate, or a fee, or both, but it will likely not be anywhere near enough to negate the savings.

I used my mastercard, but had to enter a Hong Kong postal code, 999077 and a Hong Kong phone number, 2921 2222.

The game will begin to download once you've completed the purchase, you can then switch regions and play it on your UK account.

Before anyone says anything about the MS banning people for this, people have been doing this since day one, buying things from different regions, and I haven't heard of a single person having an issue, but bear it in mind.

Done.

This'll probably get voted cold, but hopefully it'll help at least one person out!

Yeah you will get the people not in the program voting cold out of spite. Then the ones who feel its a risk. Somebody will probably take advantage of it though

although this doesn't apply to me, I voted hot for the find and the saving being large enough for those who can get it. thanks

I'm still waiting for my preview invite to be sanctioned.

I buy from usa marketplace. I even went on microsoft chat and explained what I do and they said as long as I have us codes it's ok. Great find.

How do you get on the xbox preview?

How does one get a invite to the program

Anyone here want to share the love

HOT, Thanks mate, this worked for me. I was on the fence about this game but decided to get it to keep me entertained until Destiny and Master Chief Collection with Halo 5 beta.
Doubt I'll get banned but will let you know if MS give any feedback. Also PM with your gamertag if you need a preview program invite.

How do you get on the xbox preview?


PM me your gamertag I'll invite you

Is this via Xbox.com or the actual Xbox one? Via Xbox.com I get that the store isn't supported in HK region.

We know the risks. No need to be a killjoy, just because you might be scared to try it. (or you're an angel and believe corporations deserve the RRP). MS said this is okay, but if they want to ban like i said everyone who does this is aware that MS has banned before for stupider reasons than this.

I still think this is risky. Entering false post code and phone number is fraud and against xbox ex-husband conditions.

And the way Microsoft brought about bans on the 360 was bringing the ban hammer down at unexpected moments, all at once. Just because they haven't gone for it yet doesn't mean they won't.

And as for the "Microsoft support said it was okay" Argument. They say what they think people want to hear to get a good user outcome review.

Yes its a good price, but in my mind that doesn't outweigh the long-term risk of turning the one into a 350 quid brick.

Think that's the best auto spell mistake I have seen

Done. MS are fully aware what people are doing, they frequent the message boards, communities and can see what's going on.

Chances are they won't do anything, nothing happened a year and a half ago when everyone grabbed Assassins Creed for free.

2) Select SETTINGS
3) Select SYSTEM
4) Change locality to HONG KONG
5) auto restart
6) go to xbox store and buy DIABLO 3 (284 HKD - 22 pounds approx.)
7) select pay with credit card (PAYPAL doesnt work) and use your normal card. need a postcode in HONG KONG and a phone number, i used the postcode given in OP and the phone for the HK university
Wait for the download to finish on our slow as UK connections. DONE

Unlucky, might have to do with your card company checking the postal address. Mine went through fine. I know its strange about Hong Kong not using postcodes, so i just used the one given by OP which worked. I tried my uk postcode but that was not accepted .

Mine went through fine, downloading as we speak, just have to wait and see how much my CC company will rinse me for a non GBP transaction. Still, will work out cheaper than paying current UK digital/high street prices.

Just hope we don't get banned!

Would be grateful if anyone could invite me, viperus

Could anyone send me an invite please. Would be ever so greatful

A Preview Program invitiation would be awesome if anyone could hook me up GT: BengeyBoy

Thanks in advance!

PM me your gamertag I'll invite you

Hey can you inv me? xXcorymanXx

I want the deal but don't want to break Xbox TOS to do it by entering false information.

I was thinking of getting a HKD redeem code to cover cost of game.

Has anyone got instant codes ny email from playasia before?

I was going to by 2 of these codes, and hoping they don't have to ring to very - I don't speak Chinese. play-asia.com/xbo…tml

would be grateful for an invite too ;-) TS I N3X

Thanks OP download worked for me shame not much to choose from on the HK store was hoping destiny will be released on it as the HK to GBP is better than USD to GBP???

Gamer tag blank0502. If anyone fancy to give me an invite I would very much appreciate this and if your up for a bit of Co op let me know!

Worked for me!
