So I have a Japanese Xbox 360 and, after changing the console's language to English, it's deceptively identical to an American one. But the 360's region locked for disks, and I'm not really sure how this matters for XBLA content.
Basically, how can I purchase downloadable games on a Japanese NTSC J Xbox 360? I have an American Xbox Live account, which I assume will cause problems--when logged in to my US account and attempting to access ingame DLC menus I get a blank menu. If I made and played on a JP account could I get these DLCs? Do I need to buy games from the Japanese store and do I need to use a JP account to do that?
