Just wondering how to change my local(country). So i can use some American Ms points.... I live in Canada and American points are not welcome in Canada... lol

I see people do it on mygamertag.net switching from Japan to the US. I don't know if it is the same but hope someone can help me.

Thanks in advance.

You can change your locale from the 360's system settings.

System Settings > Console Settings > Language & Locale > Locale [Choose new Locale]

I think that is all that is necessary, but haven't tried it myself.

I know I can't do it from my xbox.com profile, the country is un-accessible. I can change everything but my country.

I wanted to change my country as well, so that I could download some stuff US has, but Europe doesn't and apparently making a new account with the right country is the only way to go.

SSSSSOOOO After a really really enjoyable conversation with an XBOX rep. (arghhhh sarcasm) Basically like the article my good bud Psonic suggested the rep assures me that I can create an American account on my xbox HD and still use the items on my Canadian account. Do I trust him...NO NO I do not. However with the article that Psonic sent me it sort of backs up what the rep said so I'll try it tonight.

The rep. also said that you can't change your local once you register, I don't know if I should believe him cause I do believe my fellow 360voicers more than him. That being said I know I can't change Local from xbox.com, you can change city, address and phone number but not your country. I will try and change it from my console.

Thanks for the input everyone and I'll get back to you with the results tomorrow.

ps.. I'll probably need an American brother to buy me some more points.... I'll trade for Maple Syrup. :P

Geez, you'd think there'd be a conversion rate for MS points, so you could just switch 'em.



One of the songs I wrote is available as DLC for Rock Band 2, 3 and Blitz!!! Check it out: http://rhunekincaid.com/blog/2010/09/iphone-on-rock-band-network-for-xbox-360/

Spider= Canadian
xxforgersxx= American

Ok still waiting on Kingrich06 to answer a question I sent him.. but so far,

I can access spiders arcade games from my xxforgersxx account.
I can't access any of spiders Avatar stuff with forgers.
I can't access any of xxforgersxx avatar stuff with spiderman.

This whole fiasco is starting to annoy me it's 2 hours I'm putzing around with Xbox support, my console and starting new accounts. I am going to re-read the article that Psonic sent me just to make sure I didn't miss anything. I'm hoping Kingrich has some answers for me, I can't be the only Canadian who's doing this.

*****News*****

Basically only good for games, not avatar. I could access the tv shows, but I'd have to setup a proxy server-mabob. (yup put mabob cause I'm not sure what that is) Being able to get games I guess is good enough for me.

Thanks everyone for taking the time to post any addition info would be appreciated. Thanks

Sorry, just got to read this.

Avatar stuff, unlike games and DLC, is only good for the profile that downloaded it.

So, even if both profiles were from Northern Montana (Canada) only the one to DL it would be able to use it.

Neither my wife nor my son can access my Saints Jersey nor Lightsaber.

Sorry. :(
