x box live, topping up points in oz?

Recommended Posts

Hi

We brought our UK x box to Australia with us late last year, we have bought games (COD) black ops since we have been here and that worked fine, when we updated x box live we used a UK credit card, that's now expired.

I have just bought some microsoft points to upgrade the map but they won't work?

In sure this has somethin to do with UK/oz but don't know how to resolve it

If any one can shed some light would be most grateful as have a very unhappy 12 year old and I'm $25down :-(

 

Thanks Claire x

You used an australian card to buy the points?

You might need to log into your msn account (that is associated with the live membership) online, go to account settings and change your country to australia.

I had to do this when I first set up my australian x-box, it wouldn't let me register otherwise.

good luck! hope it works.

hi

thanks for the reply, we have now managed to resolve this,

 

we had to set up anther profile thats registered as Australia, redeem points on that profile and download to the xbox, any profile on the xbox can then access the new maps.

Complicated i know but you cant just change original profile set up in uk to say your in oz,

 

cheers claire x
