LOCKED - Migrating a US account to a UK account

I recently moved back to the UK. I purchased a new Xbox slim and recovered my US account all fine. However, when I go to purchase items (for example i'll use the Black Ops map packs) it tells me I cannot download or they're not available from my location. I had a redeem code for the Escalation map pack, it says I have purchased it, but I cannot download it. This goes the same for the First Strike map pack. The weird thing is that it actually started downloading them but when either map pack gets to 100% it says they could not be downloaded.

Can i fix this in any way?

not possible

prepaid codes for dlc are region locked if you read the GAMESTOP faq

you must live in the physical region address when you purchase dlc codes

the easy way to fix it

forums.xbox.com/.../34.aspx

If your account region no longer matches your physical location and your country is not one of the newly added regions, you would have to create a new account to reflect your location

Account region.

Physical region.

DISK region must all match

it fails at 99% because you are out of region

nor can they be redownloaded or updated out of region

there is no migration to uk

migration wouldn't work anyways  you would forfeit access to previous downloads history anyways

existing dlc on the harddrive will still work

 

 however you can use dlc access all profiles as long as you do a DRM transfer and assuming they are not region locked at www.xbox.com/drm

one note if you purchase the uk disk and uk dlc with a silver uk account it would be associated with your current console therefore does not need to be drm transfered and will be sharable accross all profiles

 

the drm transfer only changes the console its associated with not the gamertag for your previous us content that you downloaded

 

you must keep the previous us gamertag

I'm also trying to purchase this with Microsoft points. So, basically you're telling me that I have to give up my account, all my games, saves and my friendslist in order for me to purchase addons for English region games?

There's no way at all to make my account show and use the UK dashboard?

no that is incorrect

you can use dlc accross all profiles

the UK account does not need to be gold however you do need uk ms points for UK content

to download us region locked content you must physically be in US and as stated in the sticky all MUST match

however you can use a UK account and uk ms points and a uk disk to download the UK content as you physically live there and your other gamertag can still use the content however you cannot purchase region locked content out of region

This is a terrible thing and I can't believe that something like this can't simply be done. They need to add more to the migration options. I work in the gaming industry and I'm going to be stuck here for a loooong time with these useless points and this now used and useless map pack code.

its not likely due to compatibility issues

PC games aren't limited to pal/ntsc but CONSOLES are

licenses and distibution is limited by laws and regions

ntsc/pal content isn't compatible with each other

ntsc belongs in ntsc regions discs and pal content will only work with pal disks and are only avaible in the respected regions

 

also ALL prepaid DLC codes from gamestop do come with a warning

this content is region locked and will only work in the region you purchased in (this does come with the blackops mappack codes)
