Isn't the game part of your Contraband list? How are you going to receive it if that's the case?

I heard its fine if you order just one copy of the game, but to order up a bunch of copies and re sell them here(Australia). You will get caught and fined.

So as long as u order one, we can get the game? any australians got it yet?

After reading this i decided to give it a try, i'm tracking the shipping and it's on its way to Australia now, fingers crossed it gets through customs over the next few days.

maybe someday when i have the devices, i am encouraging all interested australian's to do so, to teach the confused government a lesson retail and how the australian retail stores will suffer if thay dont change the current broken classification system that was made in the 90's.

Seriously though, it sucks you guys in Australia can't just get it by regular means and have to import the game.

Where'd you order it from DEG23? I was going to order a few copies from play-asia.com, but I'm not sure of the exact region/version to get first :)

I have read that some people have ordered boxes of 20+ versions and had them clear customs (Not kidding here, at all!)

Got mine from Play Asia, the US version. The website says that all versions including the asian version are region free for Xbox but i went with the US version cos i'm not sure what language the asian version was in. Also paid extra for Fed Ex so i could track it but i don't think that matters, probably just takes longer to ship for the standard snail mail.

Haven't heard of anyone ordering bulk amounts but few of my friends ordered the standard on PS3 then got either the kollectors or tournament edition for 360 and they all passed customs no worries.

Being that the topic of Australians having/not having MK9 is quite popular, I'm adding it to the FAQ.

You all feel sorry for the poor australians?
HA!

What about the germans?
We're here in a far more worse situation then the people from down under.

Here in germany the game also has no age classification/rating,
so it is NOT possible for me to play the game online.
And NO DLC Codes work.

The only thing i could do was test the game only (2 day online pass)
But after that I'm not able to use the online features, and can't get the online Achievments.

Will Australians still be able to buy DLC for their accounts if they import?

And I dont mean use a US account and download hte DLC there, I mean, if we import a PAL version from, say, Singapore, can we still buy the DLC on our local accounts?

I don't think there will be DLC content on our local/Australian marketplace because the game has been banned, regardless of whether your copy is PAL or US.

What may be the only possibility is to create an account from another region and download that. Many Australians have already done that with the online code, as it won't download from the Australian marketplace, (keeps saying content unavailable)

You just need to create a US/UK account on your console, and use the code with that account.

Because DLC is linked to both the account and the initial console it's downloaded to, you will be able to play online with your AU account (and any other accounts on the console).

Customs check like 8% of the stuff that comes in to the country and these online stores, ebay, amazon etc... don't advertise the name of the game. Mine came with just Play Asia on it.

Is this 100%? If it does work would I be able to download say GTA San Andreas on a UK account off an Australian ISP since it isn't released for download here?

I can only confirm that it let me download the online activation with a uk account in Australia. Ill see what is on the Market place with my UK account.
Is San Andreas avalible to download on xboxLIVE , just not in Australia?
If so im going to be super pissed!!!

The thing is we don't have a mature rating for video games the highest rating a game can be allowed is MA15+ and this game is one of the most brutal I've ever played lol not to mention in Australia there has been an anti-Mortal Kombat agenda since the original port to console.

No you dont have to buy gold for the uk account you create.

I agree this game is brutal, but i dont think its worse then MW2 "no russian " level. I still think about it whenever i am at the airport

Do the same thing that every german does automaticly when a game arrives with an M Rating because this game will be automaticly banned from the marketplace in this wonderful country.

Make a fake account, download your dlcīs / addons here and specially for this game, activate your online pass here. The code unlocks the console for online gaming with all accounts that are stuck with this console.

Example - 1 console, Main account, dummy account, fake account, account of a friend. You use the code on the UK fake account --> all accounts, even the one of your friend, is now able to play MK online. The online pass is invalid for your friend if he recovers his gamertag on his console, but still all accounts on your console can play MK online.

If you have problems with the DLCs that will arrive later on this game then welcome Australia to the german way of gaming. Google what a VPN is and how it works and then download them via this, because otherwise the download will most likely be locked cause of country specifications. You cant imagine how long the list of this games is in germany ;)

Then in some point you failed and did something wrong. Maybe double use of the code or a false account creation.
You have to create your account on your PC via xbox.com - turning the language to english is not enough ;)

You needed to create a US account. I tried with a UK and it didn't work. As for the topic, I imported the game from Play-Asia with no hassles.

My country of choice was Swiss ... itīs nearest to Germany and it worked. Donīt know if UK makes problems, anyone else with this problems in UK?

About the account creation - as far as I know you dont have a choice of country selection as long as your xbox is connected to Live, your choice will be forced. If there had been any changes in this process I didnt knew that. But fact is, xbox.com works too so the correct answer would have been "You can do this for example, but you could also do ..." ;)

I wouldn't. That account is the only account that will be able to re-download the pass if something goes wrong.

Besides it's not like accounts take up heaps of space.

I can confirm that the Kombat Pass I got with my copy worked on my XBOX. I got the game from New Zealand, and on closer inspection it was originally from the UK anyway. I made a fake UK account and redeemed the code on that account. My proper account works perfectly fine (despite the lag) online. I hope this helps.

Im from New Zealand and online play against most international players works quite well with little lag. This includes opponents from the US, UK and Japan.

I feel sorry for our Deutsch members who have to jump hoops to play an awesome R18/M rated game.

As for creating a new account to redeem codes/obtain DLC and stuff, this works perfectly well with your normal xbox live account.

So as long as you have purchased your copy you will be able to play online via the Kombat pass. I also have all of the DLC and have no issues using them on or offline.

Aussies and Kiwis can order the PAL version from http://www.mightyape.co.nz/product/Xbox-360/Mortal-Kombat/7275027/
