it does you are unlikely to download region locked content as it fails most of the time

if you want to take the risk that is upto you

like moderators and others will tell you it is best to use your actual region for the best experience with live

out of region consoles are not recommended

k, i was tweeting back and forth with @xboxsupport2 b/c i cant download GTA IV. after some hours of  "troubleshooting" we apparently found the issue that wont allow me download GTA IV which i bought in the US and then tried to download when moved to colombia. i asked if would it be ok to try a VPN to download the game and the answer from the Sopport agent was can give it a try  ....it should be OK

the screenshot is here https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Md2aIVzPBPA/UVEo5aF1YqI/AAAAAAAAABI/Fvmuk3t71nM/s512/Captura%2520de%2520pantalla%25202013-03-25%2520a%2520la%2528s%2529%252023.44.53.png Any suggestion from the forum staff?

if such a procedure is a violation against theTerms of Service of XB live, that means that i have been encouraged by a support person to violate the terms of use, and expose myself to lose all the money spent on my account. Really would like to see an expert opinion on this

Hey there Common! I took at look at the tweets in question and I can understand that there might have been some confusion as to the wording. As CW said however, I would agree that trying an entirely new WiFi network would be your best bet to try to resolve the issue. Let us know how that works for you! ^_^

So what is the actual answer? It sucks that those of us who have to move frequently for work or other commitments are constantly screwed by region coding.  I could be in Germany for a year, then the UK for a year... am I seriously expected to get a new account every time this happens?

either that or you bring your console with you

it is not recommended thst you use the migration tool for short term visits because it will be too costly for you as you forfeit region locked content each time you use it

yout best option and legal option is to bring your console and dont delete the content thst is region locked

if you need access to region locked nee purchases you will either have to make a new local account or wait till you are back in your home region

international laws are not window dressing

you must abide by them

as you travel the world it does not mean you can ignore international laws

vpns are not a legitimate way to get content

your own embassy will tell you thst

you have to follow the local laws
