German game on US System

I bought a German game and have a system purchased in the United States, I now figured out the there are region codes and it won't play on the U.S. console.  Is there any way to get this game to work, or do I have to simply just get a U.S. version of this game?  Will XBox exchange it for the correct region game?  What would be the best course of action?  Thank you to anyone that can help!

Hi there is no way of getting this game to work on your us console, i would suggest buying the us version of the game as most games are region locked by the game developer. I honestly dont know if xbox will exchange it for the correct region game, as it is not their fault that you brought a german game and have a us console.

Hello,

Microsoft does not exchange copies of games because they were purchased for the wrong region. You would need to either return the game to the store if it's possible, sell the game, or purchase a U.S version of the game.
