OTOH, MS have been actively making things difficult for us in Australia. I've at times been able to switch regions (to the US) and purchase without issue, then other times it simply won't accept my regular payment methods. It's a bit frustrating.MS has nothing to do with getting games rated in Australia or anywhere else unless they are the ones publishing it, and therefore that have to go through the classification board. As I believe it the ID@XBOX games are published by the developer and MS doesn't charge platform fees, but the devs are the ones who have to pay to get their games through the classification boards for all the countries around the world they want to release it in. If I'm wrong someone will surely post it.I wasn't saying MS had anything to do with not putting the games on the AU marketplace, I was saying that MS are making it difficult for Australians choosing to select a different marketplace and buy from it.I've heard the same rumour about the ratings board fees. I suspect some oddities in the way our ratings work here might be part of it too.I always wanted you to go into space, man.
