Ori and the Blind Forest Xbox One for £2.07 (Russian Xbox Store)

42
Found 3rd Dec 2015
As above, fantastic price! It was over £4 earlier but has now also been reduced like other stores to 209,50 Rubles which is £2.07!

Instructions

Go to Microsoft store:
microsoftstore.com/sto…ome

Log in as usual to your MS account.
Switch region to Russian, or just click this link:
microsoftstore.com/sto…800

Use your card to buy credit, code is provided instantly. Redeem and buy the game!

I used Revolut and bought 500 Rubles credit for £4.94. You don't need Revolut for this but it will avoid any fees for currency change.

It is probably getting most of the cold votes because it isn't mentioned what 'Russian Store' it is from or on what platform.

​You can buy 500 rubles (just under £5) on the Russian Microsoft store. It's an instant code. Just redeem the code and buy the game

Can I use the Revolut card to buy it directly?
Original Poster
No, you need VPN for Russian xbox store. The credit is sold on the MS store so you can use any card and then redeem the code for credit. you can then easily use the credit for buying items. Frustrating as I want to buy something else and could do part payment with what is left on the Revolut card. You need VPN though (and wouldn't actually need a Revolut card, any would be fine - I just use it to avoid currency changing fees from my bank).

Only through VPN. I tried earlier to no avail. Buying credit worked fine but direct on Xbox store did not. Great if it worked for you and by all means others try it, it may not work though and Revolut told me over chat that they are having issues with Microsoft.

Been waiting for this to go back on sale for a while, got it direct from Xbox.com with revolut. Total was 2.35.. HEAT!!
i use my credit card which is on the system but now i have to use a vpn on the final screen. The Brazilian and Hungarian store's are sometimes cheaper than Russia so its worth a look.
Voting cold because tax avoidance

Just bought it from here, using revolt and vpn unlimited (i'm still on my free trial)
Very hot,just done this,,and worked fine,,expected it to be complicated,though chrome would not translate the Russian text on the payment pop up.

I used the google translate app through my mobile using the rear camera.worked a treat.

Cost £2.06 and Microsoft took 30p.

currently downloading now.Thanks have some heat OP.

For anyone interested I did these steps

1.Signed upto the free VyprVPN (you get 500mb a month) goldenfrog.com/vyp…vpn
2.Downloaded the revolut app and deposited £10 using the one time MSE code which added £5 so £15 - Bonus!
3.Signed into xbox on the laptop and searched ori-clicked and was showing £8-then bottom left corner selected the Russian store (Pоссия)
4.Used translate to do what I could within chrome then when I entered the payment screen I just used the google translate app viewing text through my mobile. ,Put in my revolute account details,with my proper address,but I changed the city box to "Tomsk" and used postcode "634003"
5.before going any further I connected the VPN and selected Russia
6.clicked pay,all done

I am not sure if this is how everyone else does this,but I just wanted to try and do a step by step for how I did this and for anyone who is thinking this is complicated.

Hope it helps and I think I will be doing this more often
Is pay button under the email address?

what was the one time MSE code?
rewiredlife

@what was the one time MSE code?




Its "MSE" When you first sign up for the revolut account it asks if you have a code or referral or something similar,Just put MSE in,,deposit at least £10 and you get a bonus £5.

Thanks, appreciate the effort. AVF have a good guide here: avforums.com/thr…57/

It also outlines/translates the Russian checkout process:

If you have trouble, add billing info without VPN, add card info without. Once they are both on the account, try and buy with VPN.

yeah, wait for them to tell you it is too hard after the first few hours

this game gets pretty demanding, and is well worth even the full price
