im sure you have all seen the method for getting cheaper v-bucks.

well this also works for getting cheaper games and since no games are region locked that are bought off xbox you can do it for all games.

for example if i was to buy mortal kombat XL in the UK it would have cost me £20 but using the method Chat posted it only cost me £7.50 because i bought it from America.

( i did copy and paste this method from chats post so all credit to him and changed it a bit)

so find the game you want to buy

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

this is an xbox store checker that tells you the best price for the game you have picked, but not all games are on there.

When you have figured out the best price and the country, you need to buy a gift card. i usually use G2A for that. as they have a wide range.

We will now sign in on the XBOX website and find the item we want to purchase, at the bottom left of the website there is a globe icon, click that and change it to the country you have picked. Everything will now be in a different language, use google translate to purchase by redeeming your GIFT code.

you will obviously need to be signed into your xbox/microsoft account on your PC and when it asks for an address google a hotel in the country you have picked and use that address.

Any problems at all feel free to message me but me nor TTG are liable if anything goes wrong.

I'm sure digital games are region locked.

I bought Xbox Live from G2A from the American side ( I live in the UK) and now my account is region locked to the US. I have even my region back to the UK and is still region locked until my subscription has ended.

Xbox Live support confirmed this also.

So don't do this with Xbox Live but games may work, I don't know

I'm actually going to make a long detailed thread on everything like this, including all regions & deals for each game when a new game drops and or has a good deal on it thank you for giving me credit on this post, it really is a blast to save money.


Each Region has better deals, Argentina is the best for Fortnite, but Brazil or somewhere else could be better for another game.

XBL / Codes may not work - in other countries this required your account to be moved to that region to use that currency.

as for Games, they're all region free so you can do it with all games / DLC.

yeah ive saved so much money from doing this just in the past day, it really does help. buying games in the UK is such a ripoff.
