I find it a bit ironic to see a back to school sale on something that is only going to distract you from schoolwork.
What can change the nature of a man?

So this explains why the sales from the previous articles were only showing prices for Australia!

Even kids need a break from school work every once in awhile. Imagine if you weren't allowed to play games in the afternoons or evenings just because it might distract you from your day job.

You could try changing the region of your xbox live account but sadly that means your stuck with the aussie xbox store for a month before you can change back to your native country. this was something you could of done on the 360 though so it may be different on the One
We're all alright

On the One, just change your locale to Australia then add some AUD to your account.

So if made a AU account, because the good Lady Von Chimp wants Destiny 2, how much would I be paying in GBP?

Is there much of a saving? I hear the AU market are really overpriced to begin with.

I buy games from the US marketplace so I presume I can do the same with Aus. I buy a code from G2A and then change my location on the ONE and redeem the code in Aus locale. Buy the game and install then just change the locale back to U.K.

Make sure they’ve installed first as the list of own games doesn’t show games purchased outside of the locale you’re currently set at (ie my US games don’t show on the install list whilst I’m logged in under U.K.)

You can do this on the 360 but it locks your console for 3 months so I wouldn’t recommend this. Just buy a foreign 360 console.
