thanks for posting! Every time these freebies from another country are posted I try to grab, sometimes I confuse myself and give up. Mainly out of fear of accidentally buying something from another country and screwing my bank account. Is there a way that people are using to translate while keeping it on that country's page? Or do most people do it from memory of their usual Microsoft purchases in their country?
Should I just remember Green is Free, Blue is Pay, or whichever way is correct?
thanks

I don't think it's a good idea to suggest to people to circumvent region limitations, seen plenty of accounts banned that way.

And that's just in the last year. A Korean user was complaining about GwG in 2019 in their country here [reddit.com] (visual representation of USA GwG vs Korea GwG).

Essentially, all year, all that they were given Kalimba, Cobalt, Ms Splosion Man, Race The Sun and The Maw. Only 19 other unique games for whole year.

edit: link fixed

Actually, since you are not really "purchasing" the game, you are in the clear. You are basically getting a long term rental of the game - for as long as you pay for your Gold. Once your Gold stops, you have to buy the game outright. And yes, this is a change from the 360 Marketplace, which gave you the game free forever. Also, Xbox BC games claimed from the main Xbox One store cannot be downloaded onto a 360.

Major Nelson does say that switching your console's region to a place that you don't live to get the game for free permanently is against the ToS here [reddit.com].

Which makes it all about as clear as mud. I think it would be far easier for them to remove access to these claimed games, than to survive the total abandonment of their system if they start wielding the ban-hammer.
