Unless you actually live in the US it would be a violation of the XBL Terms of Service to create an account for a region you don't live in to gain access to content not available to your current region. Once an account is created the age and the region can not be changed.

Actually I was studying abroad. Created in USA an account. Now I returned back to Switzerland. What now? Open a new account is / can't be a solution. All my gaming scores are lost? I headed over to http://billing.microsoft.com and saw which account made a problem.

Can't believe that Microsoft did such big mistake in their concept of Windows Live ID relational database design.

To be honest, my problem with the Live ID is much bigger than explained above. Also affected is my Zune Account, App Hub and Technet Subscription.

Hi SilenT PaKie,

Here is a link listed below on how to manage the region:

Change your region for Microsoft Store

Also, It is possible to purchase games in another region by changing the region on the console. However, I would like to note that it does take 90 days to change the region again. Also, the account must have a valid billing address and payment option that matches the console locale.
