Quote from e1ysium View Post :
For those who have already purchased the game and can't get past 80%, here's how to finish your download and play the game:

when your download approaches 75% go here:
https://live.xbox.com/zh-CN/AccountMigration
This is correct, though you can do the migration before you even start downloading. Now that the IP block is in place, it makes sense to migrate the account to YOUR local region (ie USA if you're in the US, UK if you're in the UK, Canada if you're in Canada, etc.) and then do the download.

Getting payment required pop-up?
Make your xbox account region to china!

Someone should write a tutorial for the XBOX account portion for those who are unfamiliar with their XBOX.

2:15 PST - AC3 full game download gone - possibly dead


The game is no longer for purchase on the site. See OP's link: http://slickdeals.net/?sdtid=5937326&sdop=1&sdpid=58543812&sdfid=9&lno=1&trd=http+marketplace+xbox+com+zh+CN+&u2=http%3A%2F%2Fmarketplace.xbox.com%2Fzh-CN%2FProduct%2FAssassins-Creed-III%2F66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d802555308ae

So you can get the game for free but you have to play on a second gamertag? Not worth it, IMO.

Should just have to add the tag to your 360, sign in once to download, then you can play under your regular gamertag.

Do you have to keep the gamertag on the console after downloaded for it to work on main/another gamertag?
