    Moving from the UK to Canada... What should I do with my Xbox?!


    So I'm hopefully moving to Canada in the next few weeks. I have 50gb worth of games on my 60gb HDD for the original Xbox 360 console. My worry is that I'm going to lose all the stuff that I've bought from the XBL Marketplace and possibly have
    to create a new gamertag (which will mean losing all my achievements as well!)

    I don't particularly want to get rid of my Xbox because it'd save the hassle of having to sell it and then buy a new one over there. But I'm not sure if there's a way to get it to work in Canada? Ideally that's what I would want to do. Or at least
    just take my HDD with me.

    What options do I have?

    Many thanks

    ~Kittie

    Morning all.

    I will be moving to Canada early next year. I have an Xbox one and need to know if i need to buy a new Xbox one or if Microsoft have a power supply unit.

    I don't really want to use a step up transformer.

    I understand that the games wont be an issue but that may be wrong.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi there

    you can't change the consoles region, you can only change your accounts region.

    Which does mean that games currently on the console or on a UK disc will still work, but when you buy disc based games in Canada they might not work due to region differences (Console vs Disc)

    Also be aware that changing your accounts region will have some possible consequences, see this link for the information:

    Would you suggest using a transformer?

    Thank you very much

    You may alternatively try to get a confirmation email instead, if you still have access to it. If you are not able to trigger the email confirmation by yourself you may phone the support to have the phone number changed. They will send you that confirmation
    email then and can change your number then.

    Your region will only change your account, meaning you'll have access to the Canadian Xbox Live (Or rather, North American) Store.

    Your console though, will still be PAL, and not NTSC. This means that you'll be able to play your PAL games on your PAL console, but will not be able to purchase any new disc games or DVDs and play them in your console because they are NTSC. You can't change
    disc formats, and you can't change your console's region to NTSC. To play new disc games, you'll have to grab a console from here--used ones run around 100 CAD at say, EB Games or Gamestop (But that runs the risk of mods or banned consoles so I don't recommend
    buying used). Walmart has super slim consoles for cheap if you want brand new. Cheers.
