Question about Xbox 360 games...:(

19 replies 2 views Edited Jan 9, 2007
Oh shacks I go on to the Singapore xbox 360 forums and from what I've read up I have a very bad feeling that games ARE NOT region-free!!! ZOMG noooo...Smiley Sad Is it true? Cuz if its true then I'm a pretty sad boy nowSmiley Sad
 
I mean psp games are region-free, so when I want games like GTA VCS which are not sold in Singapore ( ) I can ask my friend to get it for me when he makes a trip to US for a holiday. But in the future when GTA 4 is released on the 360 I won't be able to play it even if I can get my friend to get it for me from US...Smiley SadSmiley Sad
 
So are 360 games region-free....or not?Smiley Sad

Oh wow great, just great. I spent more time on the Singapore Xbox 360 forums and found out that alot of stuff regarding to Xbox 360 is pretty bad there. Hardware issues, terrible lag on Xbox Live, non region-free games unlike the psp( ) and a whole lot of other crap...
 
Now I'm seriously beginning to feel less and less hype up about my future purchase of the 360, I mean there's alot of problems that are discouraging me from buying the 360...geez guess I'm just gonna stick with my psp...Smiley SadSmiley SadSmiley Sad

I think they said that it's the developer's choice if they want their game to be region free or not for the 360..
아자 아자 파이팅!!

You could just buy a PS3 (when it becomes available) since all games released for it are region free.

And that's one thing I like about Playstation products. All games are region-free. I can play GTA games purchased from the US and play it on my Japanese PSP, without any worries that my PSP won't be able to play it.
