That's the list of countries where consoles are banned.. by the US. There may be others that ban them locally.

Well...people will either pirate it or buy it from Taobao anyway. Thanks! I tried to buy it but it said I needed points...must be my account region.

I think I managed to get it, haha. I'll see when my Xbox has updated (haven't used it in one or two years) I got Fable 2 for free this way a couple of years back, when it was released episodically and they made a similar error rendering the full game free to 'buy' for a couple of hours. Thanks for the tip :)

Thanks! Site said i need credits, but i changed region to china, and it worked :D Now all i have to do is to wait 3 months to change the region back :D

I changed the region to China, but it's still acting like I'm in the US when I actually click to buy.

It's at the very bottom, in Chinese characters with (China) appended to it.

  1. I've no Xbox360
  2. I never play games in Chinese language unless I'm forced to.

I think you don't have to play in Chinese language

Doobiedoo23 (1 year ago)

After much trouble wrestling with Han Chinese and many rereads of a NeoGAF thread, I managed to get this working.

touche112 (1 year ago)

Totally grabbed it. I'm going to call MS and have them manually change me back to US.

Samuel2012 (1 year ago)

It works, and it is in English, but it takes so long to download (1 hour on a 50+ mbps connection)

Xeramon (1 year ago*)

Thank you :)

Can you play this game in english?

MidnightRave (1 year ago*)

I can confirm this works. I cant change my region back to old fashion AMERICA, but I own the game. :3

TimL (1 year ago)

Got it, can I just delete my chinese XBL profile afterwards and play it with my main one? AFAIK you can on PS3 with downloadable stuff.

Yeah, you can play the game with other profiles if that's the xbox you first downloaded it onto.

thegaminglyfe

(1 year ago)

Achievements work for it too then? Nice.

Only issue I have is finding my profile again probably, my whole 360 interface was raped by the non-existant China XBL. Can you log out of the china XBL without it cancelling the DL? Or do I have to remain logged in.

TimL

(1 year ago)

Have to stay logged in and it's a 7.63GB download too.

It asked me to use points, how do people get it for free?

Make a new XBL account with location set to china.

TimL

(1 year ago)

Meh, ok, now I need a new email....

SuddleD

(1 year ago)

Just change the region of your account, that worked for me, but you can only change it back after 3 months

Victor2704

(1 year ago)

Ok, I used another account that I had and changed region. Didn't really want to mess with my main account just in case. Ill go home at lunch and see if it will download heh!

SuddleD

(1 year ago)

It does download as soon as you login on your console. It literally rapes your UI though.

TimL

(1 year ago)

Ok, wondering if it will work with my other US account, or if I have to login with the second one first to start download...

SuddleD

(1 year ago*)

Use your chinese account to download it. Once it is downloaded you can use your main account again. The game is in english and works with every profile you have on the console you first downloaded it to.

Demaeter (1 year ago)

Made a chinese account and added the game from the store page. Will it get me in trouble in any way for my main account? Dont want my account to be suspended or something.

nath2000wild (1 year ago)

Damn,I don't have an XBOX.Just if it worked with GFWL...

TheYakov2020 (1 year ago)

The UI will be in chinese or it will remain in english?

if it in chinese can i change it to english?

Just Change you Region to your actual country at http://support.xbox.com/de-DE/billing-and-subscriptions/account-management/change-region after you purchase AC3 and you will have your normal ui.

Yeah - Don't care for xbox. I'm not 12.

slugshead

(1 year ago)

Really? You sure seem immature enough to discount a console as being for children.

DeltaBladeX

(1 year ago)

To be totally honest with you. I own a PS3, only reason, it's a cheap good quality DVD/Blue-ray player/Netflix contraption/Media extender.

The Xbox can do most of that, apart from the Blue-ray. Therefore it isn't actually a viable product for anyone over the age of 12 to actually own.

slugshead

(1 year ago)

So you prove your 'maturity' by acting like a brat? Games are games, doesn't matter what they are on as long as players are enjoying them.

Now, I'll leave you to be no better than any other 'elite' brat who thinks their toy is better, and that everyone else is nothing but a child, while I enjoy all my game systems and personal library of thousands of games.

DeltaBladeX

(1 year ago)

"thousands of games."

Man, you are so cool. I wish I could be just like you ¬_¬

slugshead

(1 year ago)

Well, maybe I have too many games...

But hey, they got me into a backlog group. :P

Shame winter is coming up down here, I'll need to start playing games without heavy action once the cold destroys my joints. Been a while since I've really played any RPGs that weren't Pokemon.

And yes, I'm still playing Pokemon. I have been since the year it released. Back when I was in college. :P

DeltaBladeX

(1 year ago)

Wrong. Not all who own an Xbox are 12, only the ones who play CoD on it are.

I enjoy how with Google Translate, it says free, and im logged in, but then it loads the American price. (+1 on finding it.)

You have to log out and create a chinese profile to do it.

TRUCKER (1 year ago)

Guys help me :( I need to create a live email adress in order to sign up in live, so I set it to china, get chinese postcodes and all. Log into live and then I press on the button which is probably buy, then I get (In my local language) it telling me that I need 4400 Microsoft points to buy the game.

What am I doing wrong :(

Hey Trucker, I was having a similar problem to you. If you have Google Chrome I'd follow DreadPirateR's instrustions right above your post with that link. Worked great for me, now just waiting for the download, takes a while.

Hope it works for you :)

ladynadiad (1 year ago)

So random question kinda related. I've never played an Assassin's Creed game before, though went ahead and grabbed this because I'll grab anything free to have on hand later. Will I be downright confused if I play this first?

I haven't played 3 yet but it will probably be pretty confusing going in with no experience with the games. You could play the game for gameplay and get along fine but you might need to do some googling to figure out what's going on if you want to fully understand the story.

Smurfsrule

(1 year ago)

Yeah, I do want to understand the story. So I'll probably give it a go to see if I like the gameplay, and if I do, then I'll get the others either for PC or my Xbox. Still is nice though, because I doubt my PC would play AC3.

ladynadiad

(1 year ago)

go on youtube and search for each of the assassin creed games in 5 mins( assassins creed 2 in 5 min), there are a couple decent videos that explain it quickly

Turns out this is actually legit, it's some sort of promo running in Japan, except it was put on the Chinese marketplace (which doesn't even exist)

TimL (1 year ago*)

My download just ended somehow... did they revoke it?

NICE, was at 92% and now I'm starting all over again.

Happened to me, except it started again from the percent that it ended at. I'd say it's just the server timing out.

Demaeter (1 year ago)

Anyone know if I can get banned or something for getting this while not being from China?

TimL (1 year ago)

It's over, they restricted the download (it corrupts automatically).

Mine keeps downloading but i guess it will stop eventually. Thanks!

Demaeter

(1 year ago)

You can cancel your download, it stops at 80% if you don't have a chinese IP (tried 2 times).

TimL

(1 year ago)

What you could do is Find a Chinese VPN and, a program called Connectify Hotspot. Since my router is broadcasting through some thick layers of wall, I have Connectify Pro, so my computer is broadcasting a Wi-Fi signal itself and, I have my 360 connected to that. So ipso facto, that way if you can manage to find a Chinese VPN, your ip will read as a Chinese one and, the download will still be safe.

SynFull

(1 year ago)

+1 to Connectify, but ConnectifyPro is a scam, I'm still using the old Connectify 2.2 which is free and does everything
