Create a UK Xbox account, recover it to your US console, and download it.


Thanks, just made a UK account now. I'll see if it works when I get home from class.

anyone know what i could use for a UK postal code? Atleast I think thats whats preventing me from making a hotmail account. I tried ME1 and ME2 which I found off a site for England postal codes and it says I need to verify that Ive entered the correct information. I dont see what else I could have done wrong.

Unless you need to login to see the FREE instead of XXXX MSP.

I just downloaded the trial of Strania and when I play the trial of it, it shows up on my achievement list. Free game glitch?

When the Xbox 360 came out, XBLA trials/demos used to show up on your achievement list, but you were unable to earn achievements.

If you were able to earn achievements with a trial/demo, then yes, it would be a glitch.

I decided to delate it off my played games to see if it would work again. It didn't

Doesn't matter if you can't earn achievements anyway. The 0% achievement list will just hurt your completion percentage; in which case, it would be better to just remove it.

Jesus dude, read the first post in the thread.

By the way, two new XBLA games are scheduled to be released this Wednesday. Let's hope one of them is released in some region for free, although it does seem like the free games are pretty sporadic.

For those who don't know how to get a free copy of Hexic HD: just call xbox support and start whining that you deleted it by accident and can't download it anymore (the game is not in the DL history and ask them for help.

They will give you a code for Hexic HD.

If you know other games which could be obtained this way - please let us all know.

Thanks!

Nice that you got it but every time I have called support they are complete idiots and have no idea what you are talking about. I've even gotten to tier 3, rock band export error, with no results... the guy on the other end was from India and never played RB ha... think maybe you got lucky.

I'm not from UK but my account's region is UK. So I call to UK support and always get a fluent English speaking consultant. I often need to ask them to repeat in more simple words (coz my native is not English) :) But so far - no problem with UK xbox support. Never got to talk to Indians :D

Except that I need to make an international call and wait few minutes till somebody picks up the phone :D

It's fine when there are random free things in the marketplace and all, but to lie to get something you want, isn't worth it.

In my case - it's not a lie. All xbox original hard disks comes with Hexic HD. The first thing I did with my HDD - I formated it and lost of the preinstalled content. So I called to support asking how to get it back.

If you have a console with hard disk (not an Arcade model) - you have full rights to call to Xbox support and ask for Hexic HD. No lies.

Those are all totally free games from a long time ago, so it is not surprising that people are reacting like you live under a rock.

Google the "Aegis Wing, Hexic HD, Dash of Destruction, Totem Ball, Yaris" thread from Digiex, and burn the ISO to a disc, or put it onto a USB flash drive.

Doritos Crash Course is a newer game that is not included in the ISO, however.

Ummm... no. lol

You don't have to lie. Just Google the ISO, and burn it to a disc, or put it onto a USB flash drive.
This may be a lot faster and more convenient than picking up the phone to customer service.

EDIT:

Instead of messing about with USB sticks or customer service, you can now apparently download it straight from the marketplace.

Hexic HD

:P

Hexic HD used to be completely restricted to the HDD, unable to be moved to another storage device.

Something I discovered recently, you can now move (not copy) Hexic HD to an external storage device using the recently updated transfer process. Just select the HDD option to "Transfer Content" and select Hexic HD to be transferred.

I don't think Hexic HD can be individually selected from within the HDD directory, you must use the "Transfer Content" option.

The same also applies to content that is preloaded on Memory Units (Worms. Geometry Wars, etc.).

Somehow I feel that copying games to USB from the internet is not very legal. Sounds like a modding to me. I prefer downloading them from Marketplace or using the Code (if they're not available in the marketplace.

It's no more 'illegal' that downloading a game from another region (i.e. downloading Aegis Wing to a UK address).

Nice, you can officially bypass customer service!

However, I like the disc/USB flash drive option because my 20 GB Xbox 360 hard drive has only 200 MB free space. I'm not going to waste space on an arcade game! Why not just put it onto a disc or USB flash drive? This saves a bunch of space, especially when some XBLA games are now greater than 2 GB each!

It's no more 'illegal' that downloading a game from another region (i.e. downloading Aegis Wing to a UK address).

XBLA games are meant to be shared. Otherwise, Microsoft would have removed or disabled the "Copy" and "Move" options for XBLA games. Microsoft wants you to spread XBLA games to other friends because they will show up as trials. For example, you can put a game onto a USB flash drive and then go over to a friend's house to play. Your friend can now try the game and buy it later without re-downloading. Microsoft wants this to be simple.

Somehow I feel that copying games to USB from the internet is not very legal. Sounds like a modding to me. I prefer downloading them from Marketplace or using the Code (if they're not available in the marketplace.

It is not modding. You are not modifying any files at all. You are just copying them, which is what Microsoft allows with the "Copy" and "Move" functions.

Getting the XBLA game unmodified from the Internet is the same as getting it unmodified from your friend.

On the other hand, if you were modifying the XBLA files from trial to full without paying, then yes, this is modding, and this requires a modded console. Microsoft does not want this.

Also, confirmed it's available to download for US, UK, Canada, and possibly more (I only tried the 3).
