Your still in the process of downloading the game and you havent got to 80% yet:

simply migrate your chinese account to your home country on Xbox.com. Re-download if you got to 80%, if at less than 80%, migrate while downloading. You can re-download from your download history in the account management section on your Xbox360 and you should be good to go.

You can migrate your account once every 3 months.

Make sure you migrate to your home country, cant say that enough. That way you will pass the IP check and can download past 80%.

That pretty much sums it all up, any other questions feel free to ask as a few people in here got it to work.


Searched but didn't find a thread.

Seems you can get the full version of Assassin's Creed 3 for free to Chinese Xbox accounts.
I first made a China based hotmail account, then a china based Xbox profile, and started the download from PC. When I logged into the account on my 360 it starts to download itself.

I used Google translate to help in the process.
It's almost 8gb total.
Game is in English.

Info to make getting the game easier:

3. It asked me to make my Xbox Live account, and to confirm my address and security code (either it's texted or emailed, whatever you provided).
4. Put in Shanghai for City and 100600 for Zip Code and you should be good.
5. You can now download it.
6. Log on to your Xbox 360, sign in to the account created, open up the guide, go to download history, and download AC3.
7. When it's done downloading, you can go on your main account and play.

  • Any account on the Xbox can play it
  • You get asked for Billing Info, but you can literally put anything in there (although use 01000 as zip code)
  • They can't, and won't ban you for this, I've got accounts in 6 different regions, all from stuff like this.

Came up on a GameFAQs topic about it. Assassin's Creed 3 is linked to the profile, that's set. The profile is based in China, which obviously isn't USA/UK/wherever you are. If you do a migration to your home country, the IP check will pass.

My internet is horrendous (I download at 400 kb/s), so I won't be able to see if my download passes or not (currently at 35%), but this may be worth looking in to. If it is 'corrupting' at 80%, you MAY just need to download the remaining 20%, or possibly the whole thing.

I'll check this topic tomorrow morning when I wake up, to see if anyone's tried the migration!

Create a Hotmail account and then a Chinese XBOX Live Account by selecting China as your region.

Nah, there's plenty of us who got free copies of Fable 2 and $5 copies of SSX and Max Payne. They've already fixed the pricing, and who cares if they ban your dummy account.

Not really. You can use any E-Mail you choose as long as it isn't linked to a XBOX Account.

When you start the process for creating your Live account make sure to select China as your region.

From there enter the info they ask for and free stuff.

That just means they don't offer Xbox Live Gold in China, I believe. I had that happen too and I just ignored it.

That's why you pick China when creating a new account.

Apparently not, from what I've heard. Can be played by with all accounts on the first Xbox you play it on.

Enter a fake address and phone number. Here's an address for you: "Ghyteghfghtr 16" and here's a phone number: "6786546556".

You pressed the wrong button. You can choose between having a security code sent to your secondary e-mail or your phone. Obviously you should pick e-mail because it's safer, faster and more convenient.

Use an email address, the option under your phone number should be 'I dont have this anymore' where you can register an email address.

Oh, I see. I set up a security question instead of adding a secondary email adress.
