Dunno about you guys but I'm tired of getting yanks offer me MS points and Xbox Live codes despite my post informing them they WILL NOT WORK. Not sure how European codes are...

Basically, XBLA and DLC codes will work across regions (with the exception of Bejeweled 2 and apparently DOOM) but point, Live and XBLO codes will not. So here's a thread just for us, if you've got any promotional :360: or :ps3: codes then get swapping.

You know the drill, list now comes with more football of the American persuasion.

My stuff

Have
Beatles Rock Band female avatar shirt
Gears of War 2 Flashback Map Pack
Madden Arcade (US ONLY)
PAX 09 female avatar shirt x2
Scrabble (US ONLY)
Seattle Sounders female avatar shirt
Sherlock Holmes female avatar shirt (US ONLY)
Xtival male avatar shirt x2 (EUROPE ONLY)
Paypal (but I'd really rather trade)

Also, a PSN code for DJ Max Fever on :psp:, worth $20 I'm informed. I'm led to believe it's US-only. Will trade for a minimum of $15 :360: stuff.

Want

DLC, month subs, Microsoft Points and XBLA games.
Actively seeking: Borderlands DLC

Those are preferred but Paypal will be considered. Also hunting an E309 Trophy but I won't hold my breath.

Do Not Want
Crap
Played Games
48hr Trials - They only work for Silver members so are useless to me
Fallout 3 DLC - Got it all with the GOTY
Gears of War 2 maps - I have them all
Halo 3 or Halo Wars content - I have it all
Rock Band or Guitar Hero songs - I don't have the games (yet?)
South Park DLC - Got it
Timewasters

---

Friend's stuff

Has
Banjo-Kazooie
Brütal Legend Tenacious D Guitar
Call of Duty 2 Skirmish Map Pack
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Variety Map Pack x3
Gears of War 2 Flashback Map Pack x6
Halo Wars Fireball Warthog x5
48hr Xbox Live Trial x30+
1 Month Xbox Live Gold

Wants
Offers

---

DISCLAIMER
As far as I'm aware, most Xbox Live MSP, Time and Originals codes will not work across regions, however content such as Arcade games and DLC will, with the exceptions of Bejeweled 2, (allegedly) DOOM, UMK 3 and Puzzle Fighter (due to the UK database being silly).
Some Amazon codes can be difficult to work with too, although a dummy US account circumvents the problem for arcade games.
Also, I've observed that codes for one month can usually be internationally redeemed.
Unless otherwise stated, codes are believed to be region free.

Eh, I've acquired a spare Flamehog code, just have it. PMing it now.
Prices on eBay are a joke now for what is essentially a skin edit, I can't be bothered trying to find a price for the one I have.
You go show off your shiny new pimped out ride.

Potential traders be warned, don't try to take advantage of my "generosity" because there isn't any! ;D

Pretty much although a little post in here isn't all bad, still highlights HDfsise wants BK.

Don't have the codes yet. Gonna have to remove FEEFAH, I won it off Acey but have no interest in the franchise so Acey's swapping it.

Everyone and their dog has got Flashback.

Right, I have the Banjo codes!

EDIT: So I totally just "acquired" codes for Yahtzee, Connect 4, Battleship and Lara's Shadow. Not trading, just thought I'd say.

Where do people come across codes? Only ones I've ever got were ones I paid for (like GTA) or ones that came free as pre-order bonuses or whatever. Where are people getting codes to download XBLA games?

All UNO codes sold off, UNO Rush and Lara's Shadow won off Twitter.

Would anyone happen to have one of them £3 ShopTo codes hanging around that they don't need?

Don't think there ARE any Bejeweled 2 codes other than the ones off the US Amazon shop. However, a code will work from there, Arcade codes work across regions so you could poke around the US thread or try to get someone to buy Bejewled 2 for you if you Paypal 'em the $10. If they have a Personal Paypal there's no tax, so I've been led to believe.

That said you should probably just look for an Arcade Unplugged disc, you can get that dead cheap now and it comes with 1 month's Gold sub as well as six Arcade games.

Have to disagree with the sticky thing. Over time as Cheap -Arse- Gamer becomes more of a place of it's own right a British/European-centric trading scene will probably take off, but for now this portion of CAG simply isn't big enough to warrant it.

i used to know that XBLA Games codes were REGION FREE (as points AND subscriptions are NOT... instead) but it seems that Bejeweled 2 makes an exceptions from this general rule. Maybe i'm wrong
of course i wont pay 10$ something for it... cmon, it's been around for ages

why shouln't be any Bejeweled2 codes around?!?

Time to bring this thread back from the dead!

I've got a Steam-redeemable code for Dark Messiah of Might and Magic up for grabs if anyone has any interesting codes for 360.
