Unfortunately there is not. Games, DVD's, ect, are all region coded and can only be played in the region they are specified. There are some devices that allow you to change the region code 1, maybe 2 times before being permanently locked on that region. Xbox is not one of these types of devices. Hopefully the game that he bought from America is available in the UK or coming soon.
On a side note, there is one expensive option to getting his game to play, but that would require you buying and having an xbox 360 shipped to you from the US. Then he could buy games from either UK, or America and use the appropriate region coded xbox!
check the disk if it's original.If it's an original then check the disk if it is NTSC(USA) or PAL(UK) if your ps3 is a NTSC but you bought a PAL cd then have it exchange at the shop where you bought it.Hope's thi helps
Hi yeah most of the time you can't play foreign games. so sorry mate. on a homeland original console you can't play specific games from other areas. like America and Canada are same but America and england are not.
I have one in the uk, some blue ray discs are region encoded (some work some don't). Uk DVD's don't work and neither do old uk playstation 1 or 2 games. However all PS3 games are region free and work fine.
If you buy a gaming console from one country and you
buy a game from a different country, the game will not work because the
file format is different to what the console supports. i.e You buy a
Playstation 3 in America and you buy Hitman in the UK, they will not
work with each other. If the game is copied or damaged it will also say
"File Format Not Supported" or "Incorrect Region Code".
way to fix this problem is if you buy games from the country that the
console was bought from or you can also purchase a code that will
unlock certain regions so your console should play most games.
