Excellent price, but how do you buy it as I guess UK store credit and cards are no good. Would you have to buy JP credit and how do you even get it. It is tempting at under half the price here but I imagine getting a payment method the JP store will accept would be a huge PITA, though I'd love to be proven wrong as I was going to buy this in the UK store but would love to get this one for half price if possible....

Good question. How do you buy it?

If its like Asian PC Games I would be very cautious about buying it because of region locking

as far as i know you need to buy a xbox top up in the currency you need in this case yen and then redeem it with that

Yeah you can buy from any region, I've bought from Japan, Saudi Arabia, Argentina, Brazil etc etc etc and they all work fine

I got that Zoo Tycoon last night, free from the JP store, seemed to work fine. I haven't recieved the usual confirmation of purchase email yet though.

It's fine for free stuff, I did it for loco cycle some time ago, as it doesn't matter about the payment method since it's free, it's when a payment is needed that it gets more tricky.

Wonder if you can use paypal? That would get around the whole currency conversion issue but the address would be wrong for Japan....

​The cheapest giftcard looks to be about £8. There is a comment in the description about being restricted to JP xbox live accounts. Last time I bought something from US xbox marketplace using a giftcard (admittedly xbox360 game + DLC) it was a PITA to get resolved. If it all goes wrong you'd waste £8 instead of paying £6 on UK store. I'm sure there are more experienced folk that know what they're doing that will shout me down and say how simple cross-region purchases are, though!

Just buy it with (bank) card + VPN. No messing with gift cards.

Takes me back to getting Dark Souls 3 weeks early

​Wow, sounds like a right chew on. Best of luck to anybody trying to get this deal.

Buying from other regions was super simple with Revolut but they locked that down. Giftcards is the way to go now. Personally I only use the US store now as its simple to do with a non taxed state.

Buy it with PayPal?
