cant change my region

cant change my region to japan.  i want to download the map packs for black ops but it says content is unavailable in your region.  i tried updating my billing address so that it reflects my physical location but japan is not listed under available regions to change to.  any help is appreciated.

nope once set a region cannot be changed

you need to create a new account


3 conditions must be met for region lock

same region disk + same region account + same region physical location

so japan+  japan + japan

most dlc can be shared accross accounts as long as it is the purchasing console


however because you would have to purchase a japanese disk you need to check if it is compatible with your console region free

renting a disk works to test this

if it works great

if it doesn't either buy a japanese console or wait till you are back in the US

 you will have to use a prepaid membership card as us billing address will not work on a japanese account
