Is there yet a solution for your xbox live account being stuck in the wrong region? I've had this problem for ages but it's causing me more and more problems with being able to download games from XBLA. When I asked before, nobody could offer a solution but I'm hoping there might be something I can do by now.
I'm in Ireland, where I bought the xbox and signed up for XBL, however, my hotmail email (that I never use b/c I have gmail, but I had to have a microsoft email to be able to sign up) was originally signed up for in the UK.
As a result, my account automatically set my country up as being in the UK and wouldn't let me change it. I tried several ways, including updating the original hotmail that was used to reflect that I was in Ireland, but my XBLA account won't update, meaning my credit card billing address is a mix of my actual Irish address and an old postcode I remember for living in the UK, as Irish addresses don't have postcodes, but since I can't change my address to Ireland the form requires one..
Now I have an irish IP, but a UK address, and I keep putting points in my account to buy games from XBLA, only to get 'this game is not available in your region' when I try, even though googling the issue suggests the game should be.
Is there any way I can resolve this? It seems really odd to me that I can update every other facet of my personal details and address, but not the country.
