Games for Gold Region locked???

Are they region locked?

I finally got Gold (hadn't had it since APril ) and tried to at least purchace Halo 3 for free (I already had it on the HDD from a disc but I deleted it so I could download the digital version).

Anyway, it gave me an error stating that its not available in my region OR there's an error OR something else (forgot what it said).


So, is it region locked? I'm in a "nonsupported xbox live" place. I can get everything and anything but it hasn't officially launched here.

got the answer possibly in the "faq".

Seems it is region locked to only those 15 or so countries.

though I'm originaly from NY *xbox was bought there, I played there, signed up for LIVE there, etc)...I'm just living here now.

It's not that specifically "games for gold" are region locked. A lot of content on Live is region locked and you can't purchase it. If a locked title happens to be on the games for gold, then you can't get it. So far I couldn't get halo 3, vegas, and the arcade dead rising game.
