Download for Black Ops restriction.

I moved from America to The Netherlands 6 months ago and when I tried to download the First Strike Map Pack I got this message:

This item isn't available from your current location.

I searched on the internet and it is because of the VPN that my IP adress doesn't match my Account. What can I do to solve this?

no vpn will not help you in this case

its your IP

in otherwords since your account region no longer reflects your actual physical location

I’m getting “region” errors

In order to have the best experience on the marketplace, make sure that your account region and physical location match. Your account region was set when you first set up your Gamertag and can be checked by going to https://billing.microsoft.com and clicking on “Personal Information”.

If you currently live in one of the newly added LIVE enabled regions, you can perform a one-time region transfer on your account. IMPORTANT: This region transfer is permanent and irreversible. Please make sure you pick the appropriate region and read all instructions before finalizing this transfer.

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. If you don’t currently live in a LIVE supported region then you may continue to experience issues with purchasing or downloading from the marketplace.

You can't unless you can assign an IP address to your console that reflects a US location.

1) The use of a VPN on XBL is a severe violation of the Terms of Service and will only result in an account/console ban.

2) In order to get the map pack(s) you must meet ALL of the following criteria:

 

Account Region+Game Disc Region+Actual Live in Region=ALL must match

US+US+NZ=Denied      US+UK+US=Denied         NZ+US+US=Denied     

 

You need to create an XBL account that reflects your current region.

Also if you do not live in a Live supported region you will not be able to get the map pack(s).

So I have to just delete my 6 year old account with 4000+ MSP on it and massively many arcade games, just because Microsoft isn't being realistic about how people move in their life? This is a serious break of my trust in Microsoft and I'll give a ring to CS to show my dissatisfaction!

Why would you assume you need to delete your original account? So long as you don't change consoles once you create any account on that console they will be able to share content between each other, avatar items excluded.

If you want the region specific content you will need to have a region specific account. There is no other way around that.

Ms has to abide by international laws and regulations on content and distribution rights . If you do not live in a xbox live country there is nothing you can do about the region lock
