    does anyone know if this is the case? last year a friend bought some 360 games from the US and they worked on his uk 360.... so, does this mean original xbox games from the US will work on Uk 360s?

    that hurt my head, im going to lie down.

    No.
    I suspect that the 360 will still have region coding for original Xbox games (So a US version of Halo 2 will only work on a US 360)

    However, I believe some 360 game are region free.

    Indeed; as far as I know, they left it up to the game coders as to whether the games were region free or not.

    The majority of games for the *360* are region free.


    *EA* games for the 360 usually aren't IIRC.

    No thanks.
    I hardly have time to play the ones I have.

    And if you are looking for original Xbox games to play on the 360 then you'll be out of luck as it won't work.
