    I accidentally bought an Xbox live gold card from a different region


    So I bought this Xbox live gold card a couple of months back. It turned out to be from a different region. Can I still use the card? I think I can change my region to do so but is there some legal issue with that?

    :)

    Xbox live gold cards are region locked you shouldve bought from within your region

    If you moved and didnt change your region under manage my account then you should do so

    Is the region on your account the same as the region you bought the card from? That code usually means you're trying to redeem a card from a different region.

    XBL Points code not valid

    Yes, microsoft point cards are often region locked and Australia is different region then Asia.

    The points bought, are only suitable for Asian Xbox Live accounts.
