Xbox Live coming to 9 new markets on November 10th

With Windows Phone 7 and Kinect on the way, Xbox Live is gearing up for expansion, and today announced that 9 new markets will come online for Xbox Live:

  • Russia
  • Poland
  • South Africa
  • Greece
  • Czech Republic
  • Hungary
  • Brazil
  • Colombia
  • Chile.

In one of the new markets, but already have an Xbox Live account by futzing with your regional settings?  Xbox Live is making it possible for you to migrate your account to your country’s official Xbox Live network:

When you migrate your LIVE account you get to keep your profile, gamerscore, achievements, points balance and subscription time remaining. You also get to keep any downloaded content such as your avatar items, Arcade games, and game add-ons.

Before you start with account migration there are some important things you need to know:

  • Some services may not be available in your country.
  • Previously purchased or downloaded content (videos, games, add-ons, etc.) will not be downloadable again after migration at this point in time, so remember to save your purchased content to your hard drive or a USB flash drive.
  • The account migration process is not reversible.

Good news for Xbox Live gamers around the world!
