Can you then play these games on your main account? Also isn't this risking a XBL ban?

Just tried. Oman has a completely empty marketplace now. Can't see any games.

Edit: Never mind. That's just the web site. I haven't tried on my Xbox yet.

It doesn't even have a marketplace to begin with. Did you follow my instructions? I'm still on it and downloading games. This works.

Yes you can. Even the SR4 Season pass works on your main account. No XBL ban.

On your dashboard? If so that is right. Read my last steps carefully. I don't know if this still works.

Forgive my skepticism but, how do you know for sure no XBL ban? Just paranoid because my main account has 200+ arcade games and it would be horrible to lose them all over a ban.

Because we had these MS fuckups all the damn time this year. Just yesterday we had it with Injustice for free in Costa Rica. Nobody has been banned for this.

There is no Xbox Live store, Oman doesn't even have Xbox Live officially. I don't know how this is possible really, I just read it on a German site and wanted to share it.

Testament of SH is a decent Point n' Click adventure game, though the PS3 ver. I played had frame rate issues but I don't know about 360 ver.
Do-able 100%/Platinum though.

...but holy shit at SR4 Season Pass lol.

It was included but sadly doesn't seem to work anymore. Wait seems there still is a way. Gonna try it and report back.

Okay it works.

Sign out of your Oman profile. Go to settings and set your locale to Austria. Now on the main tab there should be a huge FIFA 14 tile and a smaller tile with a Batman picture. Click on it. Now press the guide button and sign back in with your Oman profile. Now click on Injustice and download for free.

The only way I was able to get Injustice was to log in as a valid account, change console region to Austria. Go to live tile for WB sale. Log out, log in as oman account and bring up Injustice, then it shows up.

Dammit, I reached my Microsoft account creation limit. Would be cool if someone made a dummy account. I only want Bloodforge, maybe flashback and Ikaruga too. But mostly Bloodforge.

Not really anything good there, but I went ahead and did this anyway! Grabbed everything I didn't already have (Like I'd ever want to play Dragon's Lair again).Worked a treat.

Thank you very much Lima :)
