No. You need to create a secondary account, because I changed my region, but it still gave me the UK list.

And, no, it isn't illegal.

No it doesn't, as long as you make it a silver you won't have to pay. But you need to make sure you buy a US points card though, as UK ones will not work.

Go to http://www.gamecards.eu/games/goods/43for cheap US point cards.

No, you just create a US Silver account for free. :)

And ebay is where I get US points.

No you don't need anything like that. You have to come up with some fake address that matches a certain amount of digits/letters. Someone will know what I mean.

I believe that if you set up a USA account, then purchase anything through the second account, it won't work with your UK account. The only way to get achievements with your first account in XBLA games is to play two players since the game is linked to your USA account. You can't buy an arcade game with one account and only play it with the other, I could be wrong though

Not 100% true.

I got the Halo 3 map packs and two arcade games on my US account, and they work fine with my UK account.

You are correct, this is not true. :)

I downloaded 4 XBLA games off my US account and they work fine on my UK account.

Any content will work fine from US account on your UK account assuming your using the same 360 :)

Content is tied to the Console its brought on and your Gamertag.
