so are 800ms point cards/codes region free?

There are some Japanese GoD I want and this sure as hell would be cheaper than buying Japanese cards (and yes I have a jp 360).
if so I'm guessing I'll have to use a Japanese proxy to DL?

Or you can use Tor and just sign up for a JP account, you will just need to find a JP postal code though

I have a dummy Japanese account, I just primarily want to know if the 800pt cards or amazon codes work on the jp marketplace. I know MS does block some downloads that aren't localized IP but that can be remedies if they do that on every game

I don't know about Japan, but the 800 point codes from Amazon work on the Hungarian marketplace.

The only codes I have ever gotten to work with my JP Gamertag have been from Bing Rewards.

...and yes, you will need to use a proxy to download them - Japanese GoDs are not just region locked, they're IP locked.

Too much work, in my opinion.

How does dlc work with games you buy from a different marketplace? Do you need to buy the game's dlc from the same marketplace you bought the game? Or would you be able to buy the dlc from your own marketplace, and use it with the game that you bought from a different marketplace?

I'd be buying a region free game from the Hungary marketplace with a Hungary account, then possibly later buying dlc for the game with my US account from the US marketplace.

The best answer I can give is it depends. Some DLC will require that you own the same version of the game, and some will not.

Your best bet is to launch the game and try to purchase the DLC through the menu. If it lets you buy it, it should work once it is downloaded.
