Now Available in the US...well kind of.

You can now download and play this game from anywhere in the world as long as you have a Windows Phone 8 and Paypal account.

Just go into your settings and change you region to United Kingdom. Then push the button below to soft restart your phone (turn on and off).

When it boots back up you will have access to the marketplace of the region you entered. Allowing you to get this game.

The second trick is paying for the app. You need to have a Paypal account. I am not sure and didnt try, but a credit card may work but likely wont. You will have to add you paypal account each region of your phone. The first thing it asks is to put your name and address and such. Make sure you use the format for the zip code of the region you are set to (it gives you an example, for UK it is AA#-#AA). Then it will redirect you to the paypal site where you input your normal paypal info.

Then it is all set up and you can pay as normal. Only issue I see is their either add an exchange fee to the purchase or the exchange rate is just bad, because for a 3.99 pound game in UK, the same game is usually listed at $4.99 in US, but for this game I got charged $6.60.

This same trick works for the other 5 versions of the WWTBAM game. You just need to do the above steps for the correct country. It does get quite pricey to do them all though.

And unless you are fluent in French/Italian/Spanish/German, you may have some trouble answering the questions right (AKA researching them).

NO HARD RESETTING OF THE PHONE IS NECESSARY AND YOUR PHONE WILL RETURN TO NORMAL WHEN YOU SET THE MARKERPLACE BACK. YOU CAN EVEN PLAY THE GAME AND EARN ACHIEVEMENTS AFTER YOU SET YOUR REGION BACK.

Paypal account isn't required, I was able to purchase the game with my credit card, just putting a London postal code in the info. Not sure about the other regions, I didn't want to buy them all, lol.

Thanks, credit card method works.

- Keep phone in UK region & time settings while completing the game (if you switch region achievements won't unlock)
- Remember to change back your post code to normal or you won't be able to buy MSP on xbox 360.


3.99 x5 = 19.95 or 2500msp to buy them all. 500msp per game. Not sure I'll bother with the other languages, English was bothersome enough.

I wonder if you could pay for the purchase with the Microsoft wallet.

You can use Bing Rewards to get credit for WP8 purchases, as it is stored in the wallet.

I might have to try this...

EDIT: No luck. You can use the Wallet to pay for purchases, but any stored credit remains in its original currency. So if you have credit in US dollars, you can't use it to purchase in UK pounds. Oh well, it was worth a shot.

I'm assuming the game doesn't have language options you can set to English to make the German version easier to complete?
