comment Won't Xbox Marketplace let me choose my own language?
@JamesJiao Interesting idea, and I haven't tried it, but MS says that the PayPal and Live account billing addresses must match or you "may have issues". That implies that MS has access to the billing address of the PayPal account too, and I assume they use it to enforce the same restrictions that apply to other payment options. And it's worth noting that PayPal isn't available in all regions, although NO is supported. Some people buy MS points from other regions on eBay, but that seems a bit risky to me.

@JamesJiao The problem with creating a new account in an English-speaking region is the payment method. If Codemonkey creates e.g. a UK account he will not be able to use a Norwegian credit card because the billing address must match the account's country. This is a mess in Europe generally, where moving countries and expecting content in multiple languages is common, but MS assumes that everyone stays in one country and always wants content in the language of that country. The best solution is to order discs directly from the UK, but Norway is not in the EU so there may be import duty to pay.
