Just bought a new game from gamestop. It says xbox error this discs region code is incorrect with this console. What the hell do i do


Check the region code, but you could also go back to gamestop with the disc and tell them your issue. Since you bought it there I'm sure they'd be able to assist you, but someone may have brought a disc from overseas and its causing the issue or your wii is of a different region, I.e. you bought it from ebay, amazon, etc

Sorry you can't fix it. Most games are Region specific meaning that they are playable only on Xbox 360 systems from the specific region that you have. If you bought your Xbox 360 in Australia then it is likely PAL system and can only play Pal games.

"Determine whether the game disc is from the same region as the region where you purchased the Xbox console. To determine the region, view the back of the game package. Look for one of the following codes:

* NTSC: North America and South America (United States, Canada, Mexico, Chile, and Brazil)
* NTSC-J: Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan)
* PAL: Europe, South Africa, India, Australia, and New Zealand"

If the game you have doesn't match with your Xbox 360 Region then you won't be able to play it. (but a few games are playable on multiple regions, check list below)

Check out this site prior to buying games to help identify which games that aren't PAL might be still playable on your system.: http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-00-3-xbox360_compatibility_guide-49-en-84-t.html

Notice that NBA 2K8 US version is not compatible with PAL system. If you had bought the US version of NBA 2K9 then it would have worked.

Your Xbox region code has to match the region code on the video games. Figure out your xbox's country of origin and then only buy games that come from that region. If you are trying to play pirated discs and getting that error message, than they obviously were not pirated correctly.

I recently bought deadliest catch alaskan storm for my xbox and when i tried to play it it said this disc`s region code is incorrect for this console. so can i please have your help


Somehow you ended up with a different region game. You will want to take this game back to the store that you purchased it from and return it. It most likely was a used game and the place selling it had no idea it was from a different region. Only games from the region you bought the console from will play in your game system. Hopefully you can still return the game.

Also, please make sure to rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is very important to me! Thank you so much for understanding.

The disc's region is incorrect. what is mean by this????


Hello,

Region codes is a built-in feature of the DVD system designed to control where discs are viewed and distributed. All DVD hardware and software is coded using one of six numbers ( DVDs Regions 0 , 7 and 8 are special cases - see below ). The U.S. and Canada use Region 1. Region 2 discs are used in the U.K. , Europe and Japan . While Australia and the Caribbean use Region 4. These codes determine where the discs can be played.

Your console must match the discs region code.
This is not the case so you wont be able to play with this game.

Hope it helped.

I have disc that says region codes is incorrect for this console


Hi there

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".

The only 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.

If this solution helped you, please rate it as FixYa!

Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day.

Kind regards
