Different regions on one console.

I'm curious if I can do this on an Xbox 360 console as currently I have a Playstation 3 and as those who may have one already know if you import games from overseas sometimes you need a region pacific account to access Down load content for that title.

So my question is can I have my primary gamertag linked to my Aussie one but create a UK region account download what ever content and once I have can I log onto my Aussie Gamertag which  will be my primary and like the PS3 anything on the consoles HDD will be unlocked to any user on that console no matter what region the users account was created for?

I will be importing most of my games from the UK through a retailer that has new realease titles usually less than half the price they charge here in Australia and it includes postage.

Dude you don't need to bother with that.  Games from the UK will work fine on your Xbox 360 with your Australian Xbox Live account, and you can also just download the local DLC and this will work fine with UK Xbox 360 games you plan to but.

You don't need to bother with multiple user accounts like you do on the PS3.

you can do that but bear in mind using an account from a country you do not live / are from is a breach of lives terms and conditions - plus you will need to purchase UK ms points and Avitar items wont work on other accounts other than the one it was purchased on.

most online sellers let you know what format the game is in, if it says 'not region locked' you can use any format.

if it says 'NTSC region locked' then it will not work.

but yes, having an account with a different region is against terms and conditions, so that could be your xbox's funeral.
