Region Lock is the Devil

The situation: I'm a U.S. citizen spending a couple of years in the U.K. and I'm trying to get the downloadable content I bought and played in the U.S. to work on my new U.K. Xbox.

My idea: I've sent my brother a flash drive and I'm asking him to recover my gamertag to his Xbox and save the map packs I've already purchased (e.g. the original Gears of War map packs) to the drive and then mail it back to me.

My question: Anyone else try something like this? Will it work?

Again, I've bought and played these map packs for years; they are my property that I spent money on and I'd like to be able to enjoy the products regardless of where I am at the moment.

To properly utilized the Marketplace in the UK, you would need to have a UK account. Since this is a temporary thing, you could create a UK account for now, and then go back to the US one when you return.
