Thanks, I thought grabbing free gwg from other regions was the only think they banned for?

I got the Golf game from NZ (I believe) many moons ago and all is well.
I'm usually up for this sort of stuff but wasn't THAT the reason people were getting banned on the 360?
I directed people to power star golf last year. It got slated with comments saying you're gonna get banned. Still here :-) bought from multi regions and snapped up gwg when they differ due to licensing. I was informing people Max was free last month in Japan. No one interested and that was a great game. Don't think you'll get much interest for Loco though.

People were allegedly banned because we were using a loop hole to download from a marketplace which didn't exist, IE Oman.

The X1 works differently from the 360 as in it is region free and we can switch marketplace at the drop of a hat.

I have claimed GWG from other regions, consistently bought from the US and am now dabbling with Hungary.

When I had issues with logging into FC4, I spoke to chat who even asked me why I used a different region to buy from than the one Im in. Thought, great, this is gonna get flagged. There was no warning, my account is still active and I still continue to purchase and abuse the region free capabilities that Microsoft have enabled us to do.
thanks for the info people

I appreciate what you're saying and I've been purchasing from other regions for months.
This is different though. It's getting a game for free that you shouldn't have access to.
I might try it later.

The only difference is the amount you pay for the game.
I would love to know what's Microsoft's actual policy on this is.
Thanks

How can I change the region on my xbox one? I have some funds on there, will these expire? Also how often can you change regions?
Thanks, was fiddly on mobile. Wouldn't work on chrome but managed with Firefox (though without translate lol). Now says purchased when I change the region back but not in my purchases online. Hopefully it worked and can download when I get home in a few days. Thanks op

This is the digital age, MS, sony, and steam don't actually have policies. None of these a-holes do. They just make them up as they go along.
Can this be done on the Xbox without going onto Xbox.com?
Cheers OP, I guess it was free could not read a word of it lol. when I put it back to uk it said game already purchased

I second all of this - I've used Canada, games are often half the price

example
Destiny TTK in the UK Xbox One store: £40
Destiny TTK in the Canada Xbox One Store: £21 (approx)

and no, you don't get banned

Is there a site that tells you prices of games in different regions?

Funds dont expire as far as I know but they ARE region specific.

So I have £X on my account - if I switch to Canadian Store, I have CAD$ 0.00

Thats why people buy the region specific cards.

Aha, thanks for the reply. I got this game. I was thinking to buy ea access but now I am worried. if I switched region and got this game and soon after I get ea access, would it trigger their system? Or should I not be so neurotic? I have lots of games on xbox live, i don't want to jeopardise it.

It won't jeopardise anything. I've got games from every region and play them all through the UK region. My EA ACCESS was from the USA yesterday but expired. It's from Hungary now and it all works.
Thanks,downloading it now
Was apprehensive but worked and very easy to do. Thanks OP.

I think so but why on earth would you want to? It is much easier doing it via the website where you only have one page to navigate (in Japanese) after changing region, I find the Xbox One interface bad enough to navigate in English let alone Japanese! It still feels like it's designed around Kinect, which MS have long ago abandoned, they need to redesign it for regular controller use.

The only reason I could think you would want to do it on the console is if you don't have a computer but even then you could just set your phone/tablet to "request desktop site" which should make it behave pretty much like a regular PC browser though expect to do a lot of zooming as it will be designed for monitors/TVs.....

​how did you add payment funds to those countries?

[quote=P_K] Destiny TTK for £21. Was a lot dearer when I looked

cost me £27 (including bank charges, got my usd from amazon.com).

So how I understand it, it's the free games that flagged on the x360, no idea if that will be a prob on the x1. The region switch purchase appears to be a grey area. - well that's how I understand it.
This has got me thinking, so have I been missing out? Could I theoretically have been getting other countries games with gold every single month since the Xbone landed? What other regions/countries have people found this worked on? Any that are known to get particularly good games with gold? Wouldn't take a lot to beat ours......

It's not often other regions have a different gwg. This is, the 2nd or 3rd time since it started

I'M SOLD!
Good find op
Thanks - was very easy. Would be good to see more of these if there are any.

Is purchasing in a foreign currency just as easy?
so can you switch to a different region, download the game and then switch back?
