So games from other regions are cheaper and thought id write this up and share it here

This is using Windscribe. It is the pro account but for the cost, the money you save and using just one programme it is worth it i think.
Go to social stack
use promocode MMSAVE and it works out
1 year $10 =£7
3 years $12 = £8.60

now get the desktop programme and login, go to Preferences

Its a good idea to test your hotspot with your phone so you know the vpn is being passed through
if this is good then move over to your xbox go to settings and then network and connect to your vpn hotspt

once connected go back to system>>language & location and change the location to your store your buying from and restart the xbox

Great guide, this isnt just limited to games you can do this with pretty much anything.


I use a VPN in a similar way to buy things that are cheaper in other countries e.g i got a plex premium sub for €25 cheaper than it is my contry just by using a VPN. The 1 year sub for the VPN was only 12 so well worth it.

Short update:

MS has blocked the VPN way by checking country of issue of your credit card. The only way to buy is via prepaid vouchers of the respective country now since you won't get a local credit card so easy.

Im 99% sure Martsmall does something similar, as he's always playing games that aren't released in the UK. He did put up information previously on how to obtain games from other regions. I personally use a website, and they're considerably cheaper than game or other places, and they normally get delivered before release day.

Code:
thegamecollection.net
