So, I moved to Canada from the United States about a week ago and just today I was trying to change my country on my XBL account, but with a little looking around I saw that you could not do this (Unless you live in one of the country's where XBL has just become available)The only "official" answer to this problem I found was to create a new account, but I've had this account for six years, going back to the original xbox, with all those saved games and achievements to my account, this really isn't an option for me, but I've heard many things and many different ways to get around this. I'd like to see if someone who has experienced this could shed some light on the subject.
Will XBL gold membership cards from Canada work with my American account? And Would XBL points cards from Canada work on my US account?
I've also heard you could create a Canadian silver account, add a credit card to it and make purchases with it, so your US account can use that content. Does this really work? And if it does are there any limitations? Something like my US account can't earn achievements in arcade games, or certain DLC won't work etc.
I've changed the country on my console to Canada, When people look at my profile it says Canada, and in games like SSF4:AE and MvC3 the flag by my GT has changed to a Canadian flag. Then why is it not so easy to just change the country on my billing information on my account? Is microsoft able to do this, but not willing? If so why not? And has anyone managed to complain enough to xbox support to get them to change it for you? Or is it some sort of technical limitation?
And why would Microsoft not think that people would move to a different country? After all, I just want to give them more money!
Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to respond.
