I set up my Xbox Live account when I lived in Ireland. Two years on, I now live in Portugal.
I transfer points to my account and go to buy the add-on map pack for COD Black Ops. ERROR; 'Cannot buy in this region or offer no longer available.'
Xbox support had a nice helpful woman who said, 'Simply create a new account and add more points to that account'. Errr, what about my old account with all my
points? 'No sorry, you can't transfer them'.
I looked at the one time account region transfer that Xbox.com offer and I can transfer my account. Provided I move to Russia, Poland, Brazil, Hungary, Greece, Czech Republic, South Africa, Colombia, and Chile. Colombia!!! I'll ask my wife if we can move...
In this day and age, with people freely moving around I can't understand why this is an issue. As other posts have said, this kind of **** just encourages piracy.
MICROSOFT, as a hardened mac user, you never ever fail to disappoint me! That's money you've lost out on.
