Unfortunately there's no way around it my friend.  Marketplaces are based off of your current region which is detected by your IP Address.  Unless you have a US account in a US geographical area, you won't be able to access the US Marketplace.

so the idea of creating a US account to access the content is possible, but one would have to jump through hoops, just a thought while i'm at it would having a static ip effect anything if i made the US account off the US geographical area?

And also while i'm at it my friend lives in the same area as me and has a seperate account that has the locale of United states and downloaded the amy trial not available where i am so if its possible to be done, is it a breach of terms?  alot of beating around the bush just to ask that haha have to confirm everything before i try anything you see don't want any unforseen banhammering haha

basically region locked content like indie games and certain DLC cannot be purchased outside of the account region including some Apps like hulu and netflix

if you want US specific content then no you cannot download them as region locks will prevent you from downloading them

if you create an account outside your region you have to provide your own method of getting ms points

regional accounts cannot add creditcards outside their regions

If you get a US based points code, it won't redeem on your account because it's a different region, as stated before, there's no way around this unfortunately.

ms points are region locked to the region they were purchased in

for example

us ms points can only be redeemed on us accounts

uk ms points can only be redeemed on UK accounts
