    Hi,

    I want to buy Doom but it says that it's not available to my country. My account is registered by USA (which I have no idea why, tell me if you know why since I didn't give any address).

    Thanks

    Account is probably registered to usa because you used a hotmail email to sign up and the region of that was set to usa. So the setting will just be taken from that. As for buying stuff not available to you, you can't. If the account is set to usa, then you're seeing the usa marketplace. Certain stuff has an ip check on it, if you're not in the right region, you get content not available. Even if you went round that, you'd still need us microsoft points.
