Xbox 360 DLC Codes

Do Xbox 360 codes work in different countries. I'm looking to buy a code from a guy in United Kingdom and I live in the USA?

I believe they are region-specific. I'd like someone to back me up if that is the case, as I'm not 100% sure of it.

It depends to your account.If it's European you have to get codes that work on European accounts,if it's American you have to buy those that work on american account.You must ask him.Maybe he has both types and send you the one you need.

I know that the codes for Brothers in Arms: Hells Highway are universal.
But for other games I'm not too sure.

Unfortunately, I believe some DLC codes are region specific and some are not. I know that the DLC codes for Castle Crashers given away on Twitter were region free, but I have heard that some DLC codes included with games (like the Gears of War 2 GOTY Edition) can be region locked.

Personally I would love to know if the Rock Band Track Pack codes are region locked or not.

Codes for DLC and Xbox Live Arcade Games don't seem to be region locked with all the giveaways you get on Twitter.

I know Microsoft Points and Gold Membership Cards are locked to a region! It's easy enough to just make a UK Account if you had to as long as using the same 360 you download the content on your main account could use the DLC no problems.

So I can buy it and try it on my 360 and if it doesn't work I can make a free UK silver account and use it on that?

You can only use that code on a UK Account.
