JasonP27 posted a topic in Microsoft TutorialsWith the Xbox One being region free, anyone knows that you can import a disc from USA, UK, Australia, Japan... but did you know that you can do this digitally as well? I'm here to tell you how, and save you money in the process. For example, I live in Australia. We get reamed with prices sometimes. I can pay $80 for Diablo III in the Australian Store or $60 in the USA Store. Or, as I just did earlier today, I can change to Hong Kong and get it for $279 HK Dollars. Which equates to $40 AUD after exchange rate. SCORE! 1. Go to Settings on your Xbox One dashboard. Either say "Xbox go to Settings" if using Kinect, or press the Menu button and choose Settings. 2. Go to System. 3. Choose "Language & location" under the LOCATION sub-header. 4. Leave the Language option as your native language. Change the Location option to a country that you'd like to connect to their store. 5. Choose Restart Now. 6. After the Xbox reboots sign into your account and go to the Store. It will have different items and prices. 7. To purchase something you need to add a payment method. This can sometimes be a credit card from your region (can use AU credit card on HK store, but not the US Store), a credit card from the other region if you have one for some reason, or sometimes a Paypal. You may have to fabricate some information (address, phone number) but you should use your account's email address. (HK doesn't use Zip Codes for those trying to put in an address. I just used my address, town, and state and no zip code). Once you've added your payment method feel free to purchase away! I got Diablo III Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition for $40 AUD (half the price of AU Store), and Metro Redux Bundle for $27 AUD! You can switch back to your region after they are queued up to download and install. You do not need to stay on the foreign region to play the content. Note that any regional differences in digital games could result in needing to purchase DLC from the same region store. There are no guarantees Microsoft won't lock down on this method of accessing other regions' stores and prices, so if you buy a game and they block this from happening in the future, and then DLC is needed well I can't guarantee it will be possible to acquire it or that your region's DLC will work with it.
