View Full Version : Foreign Titles

I have been wondering for some time if I could play an Asian game or a European game on my American XBox. I don't know of any specific titles. But could someone tell me if I ordered one, could I play it without modifying my Xbox?

Doubtful. They are region coded I believe.

For an overview of the region-coding of games look here:
Mostly Asian and US games are listed there, few region-free European games too.
But most of them aren't region-free, and cannot be played on an US-Xbox without Modification

Europe = PAL (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pal)
US = NTSC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NTSC)

not all are restricted - if it says PAL or NTSC J on the box, ya can't play them. otherwise you should be ok but check before ordering. i presume by "foreign" you really mean "Japanese", because otherwise there's no locale-specific games that i can think of, not from Europe at least. some from Taiwan and Korea, but mostly Japan. those will tend to all be NTSC J.
