Different system gamers (ps4/pc etc) as they could give xbox ones for free and they still would not be happy sadly.

Also people who think the games "shit".

Op thanked though.Always was interested in this.

Just tried. Getting "Microsoft Account is experiencing problems" error. Will try again later - hopefully not something they are trying to block.

For people having problems, I found a workaround. When trying to sign in on the Japanese site, it would give me the "Microsoft Account is experiencing problems" error, but if you click the small left blue box which is the purchase box under the price, it will ask you to sign in, then it'll do the send you a code thing, then afterwards, something will pop up and just click the blue box and Zoo Tycoon is yours. This worked for me when just signing in failed, so hopefully this will work for you guys too. Good luck!
Graphics don't make the game, developers do.

Looking at the Wiki Link, it doesn't happen *that* often on the Xbone (more often on 360, but it seems that the 360 store isn't recognizing foreign gold purchasers right now any way), and it's hard to say if it would even have worked any of those other times.

Interestingly, it seems like they often get Max: Curse of the Brotherhood as their replacement game in Japan (8 times, total). I'd be annoyed if that was my free game multiple times a year.

Here's the link I have: https://www.microsoft.com/ja-jp/store/p ... wjs8p512vf

Best thing to do is first use Chrome, so that you can use the page translator. Open the page above, and when the page loads a popup box will ask if you want it translated. Hit Yes. Next, click on the sign in button on the top right; sign in to your account. Once signed in, reload the page and follow the blue buttons.
