    I have bought a PAL-Australia version of GTAIV but then became disatisfied with the level of cut content in the game, so ordered a copy of the NTSC-Asia version of the game from Play-Asia. Play asia and other sources all reveal that the NTSC-Asia version works on PAL 360's just fine.

    Only thing I'm worried abou will work is the svaed games though.

    Does anyone know if games saved while playing on the PAL disc will work with the NTSC disk or not?


    I don't want to play to much through the game if I find out it's not going to work when PA sends me the 'better' version.

    Game saves are tied not to the game's title, but to it's ID number (for example, the numbers on PS2 game's case spines), which changes by region. So I doubt you can use your current save on other region's version.

    I don't know how it works on the Three-Fiddy, but I copied a Ratchet and Clank PS3 save onto my PSS, took it to my cousin's and pasted it in his game save folder and played his copy with my save. I don't even know where saves are stored on the Three-Fiddy.

    The gibbing and amount of blood from people, some cut scenes and most sexual content.

    So basically, you can beat the game in 10 minutes.
