Cold - probably has spying software built in listening to my conversations through Kinect.
Great deal for what seems like days and days worth of game, I’ve put so many hours into this game and still have only done half the championships, with only 4 more achievements to get for the base game, its just fantastic, on with the grind I go...

The expansion pass which is separate to this is worth a shout too, Blizzard Mountain is amazing and I haven’t even started Hot Wheels yet haha
Also, any particular reason why this is on a 2 week sale? It’s part of the deals with gold and as far as I’m aware they normally only last a week?

No the expansion pass was separate to the Ultimate Edition as that was announced later on, the Ultimate comes with VIP pass and Car pass

That sucks, just in a name standardisation aspect. Most ultimate editions mean exactly that
In fairness it’s a hell of a lot of content and when buying it at these prices you can’t really complain
Thanks for this! NOT

I now have 1750 ruskie roubles languishing in the Russian version of the Microsoft site, but they do not show as a spendable option when I go to buy the game.

The codes are showing as redeemed, but do not show up when checking out.

Have you set your Russian address as your preferred address for the duration of the purchase? (do that here)

I assume you see something similar to this in your Microsoft account?

If your address isn't set to Russia as preferred, you'll encounter a currency mismatch. Hope you sort it
I cant see where to change address anymore. There was "Address Book" in the drop down menu from up by the log in area, but it's not showing now.

I managed to purchase it by buying as a gift, which then showed the MS balance and sent to to my other account. I then received a 25 digit code from MS via email for the game.

Just cannot find where to change preferred address.

Found the Microsoft account "Address Book" HERE if anyone else is having problems finding it.

Just checked and my "Preferred Address" is in Moscow, so why can I not activate the gift code for the game?

When you clicked through the red deal link.button.. Did you log in using your Microsoft email and password linked to your Xbox account then stay on the Russian page. When you go to redeem the code for the game it asks you to enter a Russian address if you are still on mobile of laptop (it asks you if you want to translate the language)

Yeah, followed the red button, clicked the buy button and when trying adding the three codes, they were added to my balance, but couldn't buy the game. In the end, I clicked the "Buy As A Gift" button and managed to check out that way and sent the a code for the game to another Xbox Live account.

On that account the preferred address is Russian, but I cannot redeem the code.
Just tried again while logged in to the Russian language site, with a Russian preferred address and the message I get (Transalated from Russain) is:
Contact the seller to get the code that works in your area This code was purchased in another region, and you can not use it.

Tried it on the English site, with English address and :
Contact the seller to get a code that works in your region This code was purchased in a different region and cannot be redeemed.

So it doesn't work on the Russian or English sites! What a waste of damn money and 2.5 hours of my time. Should've just bought it fro the UK store where it's on sale for £39.99

What am I doing wrong here? I have the preferred address set to on in Moscow, I even have the website in Russian.

But yet the code is from a different region.

Just to be clear, this is a 25-digit code for the game that I cannot get to work, which I had to send to another account as a gift due to the balance not showing in my account whilst checking out on the Russian MS site, meaning I couldn't buy the game outright.

The gifting doesn’t work when buying from a different region I tested this when the feature first came available as I thought I may be able to help mates get some cheaper games

You will need to contact Microsoft and ask them to refund the credit to your account and then purchase again just for yourself not with the gift option
Thanks, I'll give it a try.

The game industry is altering the deals - pray they don't alter them any further*

*they will
I had a similar thing happen when forza 7 was £20. I redeemed the code when I was logged in with wrong account. After loads of messing about I ended up with £20 worth of roubles, but I did eventually use them to buy this last night & gameshare between the 2 accounts.

Stick a 't' on the front of 'roubles' and you end up with 'troubles'.
I don’t understand all the negativity towards this method, if you follow the steps as advised it works fine, I’ve been buying Games like this for about 2 years it’s simple as

If you go to the game on the Russian Microsoft site then click buy, it will tell you in Russian to choose a payment method. At this point choose gift card and on the next screen input the 25 digit code, it will accept the code and allow you to buy it, the remaining credit will sit on your account ready for the next international bargain from Russia.
This is the method I use for all international deals and it work for them all, you do need to have a local billing address though as mentioned earlier in the thread.

Thanks for that, but I have done that with both the account I sent the 'gift' from and also the recipient account. Logged into the Russian website, for which I have a Moscow preferred address, but when I try to use the code, it throws up an error saying that there is a regional discrepancy.

Gonna try again redeeming the code when I GHFW and I'll post back here if I reach a solution in case anyone else has the same issue. Cheers.

You won't get it to work, the gifting is region locked as I explained before... I tried this extensively when they first rolled it out to people on the Preview/Insider programme

You need to get Microsoft to refund the order, just tell them you made the purchase for a family member or friend in error following a link from an external site or something, then when the balance is back on your account, follow the steps again above to buy the game and once you have added an address, you should be able to select to use your account credit.

Trust me, i'm a seasoned vet with this haha... both the gift card method and the VPN and console method

SUCCESS!

Cheers Maverick_TF

Managed to get the CS to refund the "Gift" and proceeded to purchase again via the MS Russia.

This time when I clicked the "Buy" button, the option to pay with balance was there at the top (it wasn't there last night for some reason).

Only difference was that I installed "Chrome" as it has a integrated translation, so maybe that helped.

Only problem is I've had to download/install the game to my spare account after not being able to gift it to my main account.

I can still use it on the same console with my main account, but it seems like I'm borrowing it from myself AND I have to pay for the "Free" cars with in game credits that don't cost anything extra to account the game was purchased with.

Not too bothered as it opens the door for further bargains form around the world.

Thanks again.
BuzzDuraband31st Jan

Hope you sort it


Thanks. I did in fact sort it in the end after following the advice of "Mavericks_TF" and got a refund for the gifted game code and re-purchased.

I used Chrome browser that time and the option to pay with Xbox points balance was available, which was for some reason not showing when I tried using a non-current version of Firefox, which I think may have been the problem.

Anyway, sorted now, albeit not applied to the account to which I wanted it, but I can live with that.
This is under £17 at xbox eygpt if you can get the payment to go threw. I ended up paying £22.10 for 1750 russian points (includes fee). Still a food deal,as is forza stand alone for just under £13 .

Nice post just wish i hadnt seen this.
