Around 6 months ago I moved from Australia to Canada. Recently so I could PLAY my Xbox I paid for microsoft send me a new power supply so that my console would work over here. Earlier today I was about to upgrade to gold when I realised that my account was still set to Australia meaning that any top up cards I bought at 7/11 would not work in conjunction with my account. This would not be a problem if I had a credit card other than that I would be paying an extra $20 per year for my gold account due to exchange rates. I made a few phone calls to support today & the best advice they could give me was that I should just create a NEW live account so that I could sign up for gold over here.
The problems I have with this are severalfold.
1: My gamer score although not worth anything in the real world is a mark to me of how dedicated I have been as a gamer.
2: I have limited edition content assigned to my old account that can not be passed on to other accounts such as the Gold Lance in Gears Of War 2 & certain equipment in Fable III I recieved for pre ordering.
My major gripe is that with the inability to transfer my account to Canadian region Microsoft is essentially telling me to give up the things I spent time & more importantly MONEY on if I want to play online.
Does anyone know if there are ways to transfer these things (as well as saved games) over to a new profile since I am completely unable to change my region to where I am now???
