Questions re: RBN usability from a Canadian
I have a question or two regarding the "US only" limitation that is currently announced that I hope can be answered.
From what I've read, RBN is going to be limited to US users initially:
1) Is it the submission side or also the consumer side that will have this limitation (can I buy but not submit, or neither?)
2) Can anyone give a rough estimate (weeks? months? years?
ever?) as to when someone in another country (for my purposes, Canada) might see the US-limited functionality?
3) What is the limitation based on? Assuming I don't have an XNA membership yet and would have to sign up for one (and forgive me that I'm not very familiar with XNA), would having someone with a US mailing address create the account, and then using it myself suffice? Does an XNA have to be tied to the xbox live account that is tied to my xbox console (which would have a canadian account)? Similarly, I'm reading that the XNA account has to be "tied" to a bank account for direct deposits of the commissions - does this have to be a US bank or could a Canadian bank account in US funds suffice?
Thanks for anyone who takes the time to answer. Appreciate it, as I'm very excited about this RBN thing.
