Well the thing is it usually goes by NTSC standards(i.e.Western hemisphere) while you probably purchased it in a PAL zone, but i'm sure Bethesda customer services will take care of it, unless warranty has run out. But good luck.

I also have a US PS3 and am having the same problem with my UK copy of Oblivion it looks as though it only runs in HD, so if you are trying it on an SD TV you'll need to buy a HD TV and a HDMI cable. Good News is that it will then work, as I have tried it on a HD TV with HDMI. Bad News though is that it will set you back a least another £200 and thats if you buy a tiny 19" HDTV!

If any one has any other solutions please let us know!

Supposedly games arent region encoded. In fact my brother has an american ps3 and a Resistance: FOM bought in Spain and its working fine. Yesterday I bought a Dream Theater DVD encoded for zones 3, 4 and 6 and it didnt play in my PS3 (Zone 1) so in fact the zone issue can be the problem. Regards

This is irritating but you have to wait a lot of game days until it pops up... for the profit make sure you have asked rumours around Anvil or another city. If you are in Anvil exit and come back in and he shall be in between Benirus Manor and The Chapel

Oblivion elder scrolls xbox360 push buttons wont work


The game is very buggy, especially the 360 version. Unfortunately the Live updates for the game don't seem to do much either. Developers have started getting into the habbit of releasing buggy games just to save money. If you have Xbox live, you can download any game updates by connecting then playing the game and it will update automatically. If the problem persists then e-mail the developers and complain, stating the issues you have with the game.
There isn't much else i'm afraid...
