This is by far the cheapest way to get the game and it's not hard to do at all either. I've seen this mentioned here a few times but can't find a deal for it so I'll post it. Also you can play the game as of now even though it comes out on Friday here in the UK.

1) Go to microsoftstore.com/sto…ome and add these two items to your basket, make sure they're both the digital ones.
- http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/mssg/en_SG/pdp/SG-$20-Xbox-Digital-Gift-Card/productID.299585900
- http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/mssg/en_SG/pdp/SG-$50-Xbox-Digital-Gift-Card/productID.299586000

2) Buy them via PayPal. For your billing address on the Microsoft site use a fake address, something like:
7 Raffles Blvd
Marina Square
Singapore
039595

PayPal should convert the $56SGD into ~£27.13 and right after paying you'll receive both codes immediately.

4) Go on your Xbox One and change your system location to Singapore and restart it. Once back on redeem both codes to give yourself $70SGD of Xbox credit.

5) Go find Forza Motorsport 6 for $69.90SGD on the Xbox Store and purchase it. It will ask you for a billing address, use the same one before and something like "6336 8111" as the phone number.

6) Put the game for download, change back to the UK location and you're all set.

I did it earlier today and it worked just fine which is why I posted it.

Yeah, any Microsoft account will do, just make sure you use a Singapore billing address on the MS site when checking out.

Yeah use your own. PayPal will convert it into £ automatically so there's no point in doing anything else.
Nice one OP

No, just change back whenever you can be bothered but really it makes no difference.

Looks like PayPal charged me an even £27.00
Downloading now. Bargain
Hot. Got Forza ultimate and Metal gear 5 sorted for around about 75 quid (still waiting for forex conversion).

Great deal OP!

Wont I need more xbox credit than that for whatever the tax is? When I purchase through the us store I normally get less credit than what I need as I forget the tax is not included in the price.. please someone help asap as I love forza and this would be a great deal
Cheers... cost me £25.80 by using the forex rate on my CC instead of paypal's rate.
Went for the $100 code and after paypal conversion I've paid £38.57, not bad really. I have $30 left on the Singapore store that i'm sure will come in handy in the future.
How long does it take for the email to arrive with the codes?

My codes were on the completed transaction page - I didn't even need to check my mail.

Cant anyone answer my question on the bottom of the first page???????
Yup, got my emails, worked a treat
Plus if your on a PC, much easier going to xbox,com, logging in and change your settings to singapore and redeem it rather than having to change on your xbox

For all the FIFA fans, its $79.90, works out at £36, plus release date on the singapore site is the 22nd, so game will be available on Tuesday

$70SGD worked fine for me and seemingly many others to buy the game so it's fine.
does your paypal address need changed too? or can i leave it but make sure shipping is singapore
Thanks for the post mate!

I've just added $120 to my account and bought the Ultimate edition (It worked out at about £45 odd)

I'm not sure how it will work over the coming months with the car packs. Do I need to keep my xbox connected to the Singapore 'region'? I'm guessing yes otherwise I won't be able to install the monthly content?

First time I've done this...

Cheers

My order is stuck at pending and been over 1 hour now waiting for the email to confirm purchase of the gift cards. I guess they must be getting hammered by the HUKD brigade lol

I left my paypal address as the usual address and it worked fine. I placed 2 orders and both went through - 1 for $100 and the other for $20

Dunno, but I just placed mine and the email arrived with the code around 5 mins after the paypal confirmation email. Checked your spam folder?
First place I checked ...... guess I'll just have to check again in the morning. On my confirmation email it just said "Thank you for shopping at Microsoft Store. We have received your order and it may take as long as 4-6 hours for us to process it."

YAS just got confirmed email with $100 and $50 code ended up getting forza 6 and fifa 16. So that worked out £27.60 each BARGAIN. Thanks OP very happy and both games early.
I can't seem to order? I have a 'pending' in my paypal account but it says payment error? I have no email from MS?

Could anyone get me it if I paypal/BT the money to you? I want $150SG worth
