Great bargains at Xbox Russia Store.Includes Resident Evil half price at £6.76

48
Found 15th Sep 2015
Had some money left in my Russian Xbox account so had a browse through the market place. Some good savings on some decent games.

Resident Evil £6.76. UK Price : £14.99

Battlefield Bundle includes BF4 and BF Hardline £19.50. UK Price: £32.50

Tour de France £21.50. UK : £35.99. Niche one this but it seems to be holding it's value over here.

Assassins Creed Chronicles £2.90. UK: £4.00

Evolve Deluxe Edition including Season Pass £14.90. UK :£21.50

Update: Outlast: Bundle of Terror is only £9.65. UK Price is £19.99. This includes the Whistleblower DLC and is a pretty scary game, I really enjoyed it.

There are others but these caught my eye. Pretty sure everyone knows the drill by now on changing region but I'll post benjammin316's superb and easy to follow guide below for anyone that is unsure. All credit to him for that, it helped me out a lot.

SHORT WAY:
1) Visit this link: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msru/ru_RU/list/categoryID.68295800

2) You will then need to sign in (Use Chrome to translate to English and login) using your Xbox Live account

Once you are logged in, just paste the above URL in again to take you direct to the Russian Live page.

3) You will see the various Live Credit that can be purchased on this screen, for Ori, you want to buy "500 py6" which is 500 rubles. Add this to cart (You can add as much as you think you need) then go to Checkout. You will need to provide a Russian Address (This will be saved so you can repeat again later) I used the following:

Kalanchevskaya ulitsa
21/40
Moscow 107078

Then enter your card details and complete the order. Please note, your credit/debit card may flag this order (I used my Amex, their fraud team caught it, and sent me a test to confirm if legit to which I said yes and then the order went through). Once you complete payment, you will see a Live Key for 500 rubbles on screen. make a note of this as you will need this for payment.

4) Next to redeem the credit. Goto:

https://account.xbox.com/ru-RU/PaymentAndBilling/RedeemCode

You may need to login again, if you do just paste the above URL in again after you login. once you are back, press the big green button (Activate in Russian, again use the translate function), a popup will appear, enter the Live Key that you made a note of earlier, press the green "Подтвердить" button (to validate), if all is well you should get a confirmation screen.

5) Final step - Visit the Ori Game page link (for other games, just search for the Game):

https://store.xbox.com/ru-RU/Xbox-One/Games/Ori-and-the-Blind-Forest/0bb3a78d-ea8a-48e2-9049-eec15e61c078

Again push the Green "Купить сейчас для Xbox One" (which is Buy Now for Xbox One), (If you have 2 step authentication then enter the code here), a pop up box will appear stating Ori 419,00p below that you should see a section that says 500,00 p (or whatever amount that you purchased), Click on the Green "Подтвердить" button and your order should be completed

Now sit back and wait for the game to download to your Xbox

I did post your guide ben but it's being moderated first for some reason. Thanks buddy!
nice, thanks very much!
Forza 6 standard is 3,600 roughly £34

Need to find out how much HSBC charge for paying in a different currency.

Just to confirm that the games will auto install in English?
Does anyone know if DLC purchased from Russia store would work with games bought from the UK?
yes it's the same download as you'd get if you bought it in uk. I got the ultimate from Russia store the other day. All in English. I am pretty sure that works the same for the dlc, but not 100% as never tried.

Benjammins easy guide is now available as the first comment buddy. It's pretty simple stuff, takes 5 minutes. just type Resident Evil into the search banner instead of Ori.

I use Chrome, and it works no problem and translates. have you tried going to the uk xbox page, signing in, then scrolling down to the bottom left and changing region to Russia?

Maybe ill try the canada store as its only 9 quid there and 1000 rubles is same price

Edited by: "nexus76" 15th Sep 2015
That's a great price. I will have to check if there is a season pass available on there

Amazing stuff! Though I did feel slightly morally dubious as I was doing it

Picked up Ori, Resi, and Shovel Knight (£5.78 vs £11.99 on uk store).

Chrome translated most of it well but the things it didn't I just copy/pasted into google translate directly. Also seemed to have no problems using Barclays Visa debit card to buy the Russian gift card.

Now to wait until I get home after work to see if they've downloaded...
Hsbc only charged me £1.20 for russia purchases
Ahhhhhhh rubles my favourite Micro$oft currency. Cheers OP

My dearest fellow, you have both my sincerest apologies and deepest sympathies! However, I must confess you have me at a loss with your somewhat cryptic line of reasoning. Can I therefore humbly beg of you to elaborate on your initial question? And possibly further inquire into the cryptic line : "psn is sony ? is xbox...Ans"

If I have understood correctly, you have to either buy Microsoft rubles or use a debit card. The guide explains all quite satisfactorily.
I followed the steps for BattleField 4 premium edition. Works out about £27 quid. BUT the game says queued and not actually downloading. Plus before I was changing my region a few times its not letting me access my settings ….
i got a email saying i have ti wait between 4-6 hours for confirmation anybody get this happen to them?

He's not trolling. You asked a ridiculous question.
"Can't I use a PSN card like Sony?"
Of course you can't. PSN is only for Playstation
You then followed that up with an equally ridiculous nonsense statement and called him "dear chap" so all he's done is reciprocated in the same sort of language as you.

I'm lost because in Bens guide it says to buy 500 rubles which isn't enough for Resident Evil as it's 66 Rubles. Therefore we need to buy 1000 Rubles in order to buy Resi? Doesn't make any sense to me, can anyone explain?

Yes, you'd need to buy the 1000 rubles. That would leave you in credit by 434 rubles for your next purchase.
Unfortunately, that's the only way.
Had some left over rubles burning a hole in my digital pocket so treated myself to the Mega Man legacy collection (£7ish vs £12). Though thinking about it I was always crap at Mega Man...
I see resident evil revelations 2 is £4 or so on 360, can I buy online and get it on my 360?
