RE changing region, I just use the xbox.com page, at the very bottom left it has your language, just change that to the country you want to purchase from. Seems the simplest way. I usually have it changed to Russian by default as purchasing credit for that region is simple, and games are around half UK prices.

That's the only downside, as I think RUS games is hit the hardest in this situation.

-Question for all in this thread. I know it's unlikely but is there a workaround for avatar stuff? Is it only an account region change to do this? What's the downside if I change from DK to UK for 3 months?

If you change to the UK now, the downside is you have to get listen to the EU in or out debate everywhere.

For Xbox 360 content you must change the region of your account, not the region of the web site.

This also does not mean you can buy Xbox 360 avatar items through the Xbox One, or Xbox 360 Games with Gold just by changing the region on your Xbox One either, you still have to change the region of your account.

Anything goes that arises from the other thread so it's all been vaguely on topic and it keeps the other clean for those subscribing, yes.

Yep. Did it one minute after posting. Bad news is that everything is region locked now. Credit card wasn't recognized.

You need a payment method that is valid for the region you have changed to, such as credit (via a code) in the local currency.

QuickMythril said:HolyHa1fDead said:* A free XBL Gold trial allows you to get Gold Exclusive deals on the Xbox One, including Games with Gold, but not on the Xbox 360.just to mention, i believe this is because on the xbox one, you lose access to GWG if you don't have an active gold subscription (like the PS Plus games). however on 360 the license is permanent.That makes some sense, but you also still qualify for DwG and permanent Free with Gold content (eg Battlefield add-ons) on the Xbox One, but not on the Xbox 360. I just think the Xbox One store checks if you have Gold, whereas the Xbox 360 store checks if you have an active Gold Subscription (ie not just a free trial).

Microsoft are much more liberal with the Xbox One (eg region free, sharing Gold membership, etc) than they were with the Xbox 360.
