Unable to download some things.

I'm currently in japan and Have a U.S. system, on militayy base.

Whenever I try to download lets say something on Games on demand I get the "Not avaliable in your location"

I know I can't download them due to being in japan, but i'll be going to germany soon for another while and have no idea when I will return to the U.S.

is there anyway around this? becoming more of a pain being able to not download anything.

most Games of demand games shouldn't be region locked except the few call of duty waw and blackops and gears of war 1-2 ( you won't get them in germany) and halo comes to mind

no there is no way around the region lock

you can however make a local account for the correct region and download the games as you wish

although you can buy those games on disks however the DLC would be region locked

i'm pretty sure modern warfare 2 isn't region locked

maybe its just the games you are trying to buy like the ones i listed the list is not limited to those games those are just the popular ones along with their addons

Making a local account means I would be limited to games in that region

I just want to be able to download Games from the U.S. region.

My system is U.S. but I won't be able to have my region in the U.S.

haven't been in the U.S. for almost 2 years now, going from Japan to germany next

I'm unable to download any Games on demand games

yep you cannot get region locked content outside of the region they are set in you must wait till you return to the us and get a US connection

this is why you buy the disks versions

unless you are talking about DLC addons there is no way to get region locked content outside of their regions its not a bug
