    Hello All!

    I just have a quick question.

    I have a game code from the USA. Can the game code be redeemed for my Xbox in New Zealand?

    Can I use the game code here in New Zealand even though it was bought in USA?

    Please help! Thank you!

    :)

    Cant download resident evil 6

    Well there is your answer

    Region locks only apply to region locked content

    Yes there are games that are region locked and your accoung region and actual region must match

    Resident evil is one of many region locked content

    Got $20 on Microsoft account and cant buy NOTHING

    Both games are region locked

    Any resident evil or kinect game is region locked

    Anything that is triple a titles are region locked

    Since both games that are free this month isn't a major title there is no region lock on them

    For the best experience with live your account region must match your actual region

    However you don't live in an Xbox live region

    There is no way to refund prepaid currency cards

    You will have to find a game that isn't region locked

    Most triple a titles are though

    XBOX 360 PAL TO NTSC COUNTRY

    The region locks technically aren't even NTSC/PAL locks because such a differential does not exist within the console. The games are just coded with a region lock. When a region locked game is loaded on a console from another region, it will display an
    error message. If a game is region free, it does not look for what region the console comes from and continues to run. The region lock outs for Xbox 360 games these days are down to the publishers, nothing more.

    Xbox One on the other hand has no regional lock outs at all for disc games. You can play any Xbox One game on any Xbox One console. There are certain region locks for downloads, but that has nothing to do with NTSC and PAL.

    Can't Download Sleeping Dogs (Region Error)

    Bios hock is region locked but not ntsc or pal region locked

    Region locks don't always apply to games that's why we suggest your location match your actual region and buy consoles and games from your actual region

    HELP i cant Download or buy anything

    As mister gwyther said certain content are region locked blackops is region locked

    Not all content is region locked it is ideal to create an account in your actual region

    Prepaid dlc codes like gears of war and blackops are region locked and will fail before completion

    Remeber the region locks are not limited to those two games

    But for games and dlc you have the issue with your best option is to buy your actual region
