    Indie Games are only available to play in the following countries:

    United States

    United Kingdom










    That list could change in the future.  Although I don't know the actual reason why Indie Games aren't available everywhere, I heard it rumored it's because a lot of countries won't allow the sale of 'unrated' games.  XBox Indie games aren't rated by a ratings board.


    Note that although you can only buy an Indie game from one of the above listed countries, people who live in the following countries are allowed to create and SELL Indie games on the XBox:

    • United States
    • United Kingdom
    • Australia
    • Canada
    • Denmark
    • France
    • Ireland
    • Italy
    • Netherlands
    • New Zealand
    • Norway
    • Singapore
    • Spain
    • Sweden
    • Germany
    • Japan

    From all I've heard it is due to the lack of ratings on the content thats causing issues in other countries also many EU countries due to them signing up to just use PEGI ratings.
