    Games as a Gift (different regions)

    No. In order to download something that is region locked, your account region has to match your physical location. There is no way around region locking.

    You must just make sure the game you want to share/receive are available normally in your region.
    Darkist gifting has always been region locked

    It doesnt matter if its available in his region

    Games nor currency can be gifted accross different regions

    Game share does but doing so violates the terms of use

    Account info cannot be shared over xbox live

    Nor should it be shared with someone you dont know from over seas

    Hey there,

    Unfortunately codes are region specific and cannot be used outside of the region they were purchased within. You cannot share your account information with another user, as that is a violation of the Terms of Service.

    Hi DeathBlade23456,

    Check out the Help with giving digital games as gifts support page, there is guidance on this which I have
    copied below.

    “If the recipient receives the following error message: “Contact the seller to get a code that works in your region. The code was purchased in a different region and cannot be redeemed”, this means that givers and recipients must always be
    in the same country or region. If not, you can
    return the item for a refund

    Hope this helps :)

    Gifting through Xbox is region locked. So it's working as it's supposed to. I'm not sure why it would have worked the last time.
