Playing it in Australia question

I have heard that it is possible to purchase and play this in Australia if I create a new Live account on the UK or US Live site, purchase points corresponding to that country and then buying it. Is this true? Also another question I have is:
After I have downloaded to my Xbox using the alternate account, is it possible for me to sign in using my original Australian profile and still play it?

The answer to both questions is yes.

It's also coming early this year to shops as the complete game on disc. According to the eb games website at least...

I wouldn't trust EB games. I pre-ordered Mortal Kombat tournament edition through them, and as an Aussie you would know how that turned out.

Don't buy it from EB. They have it listed at $80. That's ridiculous, especially how it's only 2000 points on the marketplace.
You can buy it with a US/UK account and play it fine on your Aussie tag. That's what I've done, and it works fine.

Wow, never knew it was available on the EB Games site.

https://ebgames.com.au/xbox360-15420...eries-Xbox-360

Maybe EB are under the impression that, since today (1st of January, 2013) is the day where the R18+ rating is introduced, the game will finally be submitted for rating? Great news nonetheless, but definitely not worth spending $80 for.

Checking the ACB website, there is no submission as of yet, so fingers crossed.

As an Aussie who used to work there, yeah I know. But I am hopeful.

So am I, it would be nice to be able to buy a physical copy of the game. Although I think I would wait until it is much cheaper.
