The place to post for all new content available over XBL...

Demo's, Arcade, Add Ons, Themes, Freebies etc



Please pop in as much detail as possible so we can all get the best content for free before they change it so we have to use MP

Please put a large 'Title' in bold for the content type too so we know what it is


Also please post links of the best deals available for things we will all need like Microsoft points


Feel free to post Gamertags in here too and I will update this OP each time

[CENTER][SIZE=7][COLOR=red]How to get US content on British XBL[/COLOR][/SIZE][/CENTER]
Thanks to Ungreat for this

Set up an American silver account and you can get tons of free stuff like Axe girls (lynx spray) theme.

Once it's on the HDD it is available to all accounts.

I used zip 90210.

You can run as many accounts as you wish from the same HDD. I have one gold and about six silver on the same HDD. The savegames are unique to each account I believe. In fact when you first got your premium you had a 30 day free gold trial that could be run three times on three new accounts (so in fact 90 days gold free). There is a button on the XBL menu that allows you to log out and log into different accounts (either x or y).

You just have to make sure you set your main account as the one that logs in at startup.

From memory

Log out of your main account

Choose whatever the option is to set up a new account

Lie and say you are american using fake details nicked from a US address (google an american business or something to get their address).

After it's all set up log into that new silver US account and go to their marketplace to find free stuff that we don't get and download it.

Once it is downloaded log out of your US account and log back into your main account and the free stuff should be on the HDD in the correct sections of the menu for themes and gamerpics ect.

I wish they'd hurry up and release Banjo Kazooie on Arcade...........i'm getting impatient. :x :-D

Free US themes if you open an American account:

]24
]7-Eleven
]Adidas
]Alpha Dog
]Army Heavy Weapons
]Army Sniper
]Army Vehicles
]Ax Men
]Axe
]Balls of Fury
]Blades of Glory
]Borat
]Burger King

That's just the first half of the first page as it would have taken ages to list them all and most of these have Gamerpics available free ]also.

Hmmm seems MS might now be blocking attempts to set up fake USA accounts to try to protect the video marketplace. I'll have to see if there is a way around this.

Hey guys, how do I change which account on my 360 is my main one?

My 1st account was Robtallica - I left this account for too long and it went all carpy - new live codes wouldn't work on it etc.

So I now have to use robtallicaa..... but I have to keep signing out of my 1st account and then into my new one every time I start it up.

I looked about on the settings but couldn't find anything relating to it, would be great if someone could let me know if it's possible to resurect my old gamertag account too.

cheers lovers

you need to turn 'auto sign in' on for the account you want to use

check out the "mirrors edge" demo...its so cool its out now

hey, call of duty world at war beta is now free to download on marketplace, if anyone fancies a go with me add my gamertag : CreepZero
