I demand what's rightfully mine.

Today i got an all fronts Map pack (4 Map packs ) for my birthday,From a friend who's in US.He went to Gamestop and personally bought it for me.Now i cannot download it because my area is region blocked...

Now as much as this pains for me to see but i see that i've never been informed about this.I'd pay the same amount of money anyone in the UK does but i do not get the same (Not even near!) experience as they do.my country isn't supported by xbox live.Why's it then being SOLD?If it's not being supported and will give everyone a bad experience of gameplay (insane lag,No DLC'S etc etc)...

I'm sorry but,is there any fix to this?i want to download my DLC as anyone else in this world can do it.I want toget the same experience as anyone else as i have payed the same EXACT money as anyone else in the UK did.

Pre-paid cards have always been region locked junior.  Nothing new.  Sucks but it is what it is.

Yup what he said. There are many reason for region lock. Analyse sales and trends and adjust to the market, that's nothing new. Suck for you but in reality this helps to keep the Microsoft profitable and accurate in regards of content for particular region. No two places are the same. I support it all the way, tough luck though :(

Send the cards back to him so someone in US can have. Tell him to send you euros.

the restrictions from country to country are based on government issues not just Xbox Live mostly as they've already pointed out theres different currency,.

why do you think movies and other stuff never come out world wide on the same date all the time, theres all sorts of things that go into account. its certainly not like the company providing the product doesnt want your money.

look at the NFL for example, DirecTV pays for the rights to broadcast live in America, people outside of America dont have access to DirecTV or Sunday Ticket Online service but can buy the subscription on NFL.com for about $100 less than the Sunday Ticket subscription.
