Buying Digital? check this out.

Post  ilovmyselfalot on Sat Feb 20, 2016 11:54 am

Does anyone else here by digital? If so have found a guide ill post when at my pc on getting games alot cheaper. For example the division gold £79.99 I just paid £33 for this from argentine. It all legal and requires two app downloads on iphone or android.

It all started when I checked out.

On a night shift. I saw the price difference and set about looking how to get cheaper games I found a really helpful guide on avforum and hotukdeals on how to do this and will post the sets here when I'm at my PC.

Do we get a LIVE ban though for buying from other regions?

Surely M$ can't be happy about a loophole that allows people to buy at half the price or less from another region?

I read that some people had been banned before, so just want to double check

cheers

Havnt been banned same as game sharing Microsoft seem ok with this. Spoke to a few friends who have been doing this for the last 2 years. I got a game this way 18months ago as it wasn't out in the UK, think it is against the ToS but Microsoft let it slide due to having less people the PS4 so anything that is good they will keep. Not advertise but let people know. Also how do they know I wasn't in Argentina when I bought this Smile.

Still a risk as it is against the ToS, they may not be actively banning people for it at the moment but that doesn't mean they won't at some point. It also runs the risk of being done for tax evasion

People got banned before for creating fake accounts from non existant marketplaces then exploiting a glitch in M$ pricing to obtain a handful of games for free.

This on the other hand involves buying legitamately purchased Microsoft credit in foreign currency then using that currency on legit marketplaces via changing your region on M$ ' s own website xbox.com.No dummy accounts are used, no VPNs, no piracy.

The only thing that is criminal is the fact we in the UK are being ripped so much in the first place. Even if you factor in 'tax' we pay more than double Brazil prices.
For example a £15.99 game typically costs £6 from that marketplace. Factor in the weekly sales even retail releases can be picked up for a fiver digitally.

Still, it's against the terms and conditions, not a risk I'm willing to take. Spent too long with my gamertag that I'm willing to risk it on cheaper games.

Source ? It is not mentioned in the Terms of Use or Code of Conduct that you cannot purchase from another region and the means is provided to do so on their own website. It does not equate to stealing marketplace content or piracy which is what the bans were awarded for when people created fake accounts for Oman,Morocco and Bosnia a couple of years ago and then used them alongside their main profiles.

Microsoft have had a hell of a lot more of my money now I pay a fair price for digital games, before they were lucky to get a penny ! Win/win situation.

Got to say I read through terms and conditions yesterday no mention of buying from other market places being against the t & c.

Edit


Here's is the link how to do it. This is all based around iphone or android. You can do it from PC but its more complicated also works for other regions just change address Telephone for that region.

Although not explicitly stated in the ToS this could be considered Profile Tampering which is and is a bannable offence. There are reasons why Microsoft don't just allow you to buy from any region and if at some point Microsoft deem this to be a big enough issue you can expect the ban hammer to hit and massive changes to this exploit so if you do decide to do this you do so at your own risk.

Sedge i see what your saying. But its not tampering with your profile in any way that is not allowed ie changing region or language any one can do it in the bottom right hand corner.
