    Are you trying to buy it out of region? Your best option is still Gift Cards as Microsoft are clamping down on PayPal.

    could you give me a japanese address that i could use? I still feel like it's not safe if I find some fake address

    2-6-7 Yoyogi Racism, Shibuya 151-0053 Tokyo Prefecture

    Is this address fine?

    damn it can't process it lemme create a japanese account then maybe it'll work?

    even on my japanese account it can't process the payment, how do I fix this?
    It says "We can not process your payment."

    should I buy a japanese gift card with paypal then try?

    I want to pre-order Star Wars Battlefront II from the US Xbox Store. My account is currently set up in the UK and I can use my debit card and PayPal account just fine there. Are US Xbox Gift cards my best bet ? Do I need to change my account region ? Can someone walk me through the required steps ?

    Using pre-paid codes / gift cards is the easiest way. The process is as described in the original post.

    Worked like a charm. Didn't even have to change region on my console or Microsoft account. If anyone's interested I bought the gift cards from cdkeys.com below face value. You even get another 5% off if you like their Facebook page. I got $75 worth in gift cards for about $65. Thanks for this guide !

    Awesome site & very helpful guide guys:).

    Just wanted to confirm if this also works for xbox live/gold (that is you can play online & get discounts without the need of a VPN)
