Sneaky, I like it. Heat.

You can't use UK credit on Colombian store.
Good effort.
trying to follow your guide on how to get gta at the reduced price but it's not showing

Downloaded the dlc through a web browser though. Do you think that may be the problem and that it needs installing?

How did you do it?

Many Thanks
Is this half price offer a known offer or a glitch on their website which could get patched soon?
All working now must have taken a while to recognise
Got it as well, thanks.
Went through at £18.63 bargain. Many thanks OP!
Nice, tempted! Been waiting for a decent price on console but picked up the pc version for £15 a couple months back. I've barely touched it though, much rather play on console for achievements and friends.
Great find & heat added.. didn't realise you needed a Columbian VPN and payment method though

Been wanting to convert my GTA to digital for a while & it probably won't come cheaper than this.
I see loads of deals like this. Legally, I don't mind see a problem as you are paying for the content. Where do you stand with Microsoft? Are they likely to issue any bans or deactivate the digital content?

just be aware that your game save and character wont transfer over from disk to digital and you'll have to start again.

100% definite on a PS4 version as I did exactly the same, sold my disk version and bought a Canadian digital version in the sale a few months ago. I'm guessing it will be the same on Xbox One as it'll be a developer decision rather than a Sony or Microsoft decision.

On Xbox the game ID is the same regardless of disc or digital. For some reason on PS4 they are different and have different save files. Really silly oversight on Sonys part in my opinion.
Do you need an Xbox 360 to buy the the free gta v stuff? Can someone please assist me how to do this.
where is doing the best trade in value for GTA V? as I have a hard copy. Thanks

i'm pretty sure sony did that on purpose to stop people buying games from cheaper regions... they want you to buy the games from your region rather than from some third world countrys region... thats how they make money.. so if it makes it awkward it will put some people off is what they are thinking.. yes?
glad i dont have to deal with sony anymore really.

​I can't see Microsoft even noticing unless loads of people are registered to the same address. From Microsofts point of view, they will just see a legit purchase from a Colombian IP address and paying the correct price in that region which they have set.

I can't see Microsoft caring at all since in their eyes they are getting the amount of money they have asked for in that region.

It's the UK tax office that will be pee'd off as they are losing the VAT from every sale made. But it's whether anyone even notices or reports the sales to the tax office.

The way I see it is yeah, I'm breaking rules somewhere, but the worst Microsoft could do is block any games bought outside of my region in the future maybe, but first they would have to call me up and prove that I wasn't in Colombia at that moment in time, and how are they going to that? I doubt they even have the resources to check every purchase going through their systems as there'll be millions from all over the world.

No I'm saying that if you have a disc and buy the digital version from the same region, they are different IDs. At least in the case of the games I've had.
Tempting, finished this on the PS4 loved it - hmm shelling out £19 for it on xbone...decisions
Is this at all possible to do without a VPN?

Nah, just tried it needs a vpn
Anyone know a free vpn for Columbia? Loads out there but nownt for columbia
I am really struggling tonight.

Using paid for VPN, Columbia and India are failing using revolut (Columbia was previously fine for other transactions).

I'll keep perservering.
Been looking to get this recently, so thanks!

Although I can't get it to work either, tried using Hula and setting location to Columbia but no luck.

That sounds insane and isn't the case with other games....
As soon as I click the buy button I'm getting:

"Something went wrong
Give it another try. If this happens again, let us know by entering the code below at xbox.com/err…elp so we can investigate."
just bought it few hours ago. It worked great with my nationwide credit card with 0% fee for international transactions.Came to about 18.27

Agree they aren't going to waste time doing that instead they would just ban anyone they thought might have done that. Haven't Microsoft and Sony done this sorry of thing before?
It may well have been bought from an IP address in that country but the game will be played with a UK IP address so not exactly difficult to spot if they wanted to. I'm not saying they would, just that they could.
they need to actually discount this on the UK store instead of posting it in every sale for a still too high price.... if they put it at £20 there wouldn't be a single Xbox user that wouldn't be at the very least tempted.

But that's not in the spirit of rip-off Britain
