Hi my son has bought a game from america and we are in the uk , it wont work , keeps saying not right region is there anything he can do so it plays on his xbox 360 thanks traci


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!

We bought a xbox 360 game of ebay from usa,but my xbox 360 wont play it keeps sayin region code wrong can anyone help please if so if u got links it would be a great help tyvm.


This is unfortunately 'normal': an unmodified xbox can only play games made for the country (or 'region code') it was made for.

In order to play games from any region/country, especially from EBay or copied, you will need to get your XBOX 360 MODified: this service (e.g. Hardware Electronic modification) is offered by many technicians that can often be found at week-end computer fairs or Computer repairs shops. Make sure you get a quote before proceeding as the cost can vary enormously!

Hope it helps!

Hi my xbox 360 slim plays most dvd's but some it not play and it says wrong regan code what do i do


There isn't anything you cab really do without opening the xbox up.
ll DVD's have what is called a region code. this is a code that is specific to 5 regions. in North America, we are region 1, and Japan, they would be region 5. If the Xbox is purchased in North America, the DVD drive in the Xbox, is imprinted with region code 1. This mean it will only play region code 1 movies, and games.

The only thing you can do is to either mod your xbox, or replace the DVD drive with a drive from a different region, but this will make it so you can play dvds from your region.

XBOX games are region locked.

You cannot play the disc from other regions.

For example, in USA we cannot play games from United Kingdom or Japan.

It is like DVD Movies, which are region locked.

The PS3 Games are not, you can play them from any region.

Try to contact XBOX to see if they can send you a replacement for your original xbox for your region.

God Bless You!

Xbox 360 wont play certain new release dvds.all else ok.whats up?


This is 99% always the case when your dvd drive is going out. You can find a replacement on ebay for under $15. Video tutorials can be found on youtube just by typing "xbox 360 laser replacement" Replace the laser and you won't have this problem anymore.

Region codes


PSP is a region free device that it is capable of playing media purchased anywhere in the world. However, the decision to make games and movies region specific is made by the publisher of each title and as a result some Universal Media Discs may not work on a PSP purchased in a different country.
Please ensure that you check each piece of software and UMD films for compatibility with your PSP before purchase.
