The only way this happens under normal conditions is if you have bought games online and they are from another country like Europe or Asia they use PAL to scan The US and a few other small countrys use NTSC.

Here is a list of the countrys www.terrascope.org/NTSCvsPAL.html

This is your best bet either that or the system you have bought is PAL which would make US games not work.

If this doesnt solve the problem i would contact MS to see what you need to do in order to fix this as i have never encountered this before under normal working conditions. Hope this helps.

put your to off position, then put it on, then enter your regional code of your country (ex: united state that is 1001)( the philippines is 003 or 004) I"m not sure but this is the pruceedure.

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!

I put a game in and it said wrong region code for this console? Help?


Region codes are so the console can only pay discs in the same area. For the US the region code is NTSC, Japan is NTSC-J and for UK it is PAL. Be sure to check your disc label to make sure you are trying to play a game with the matching region for your console.

The region code is wrong,x-box 360


go to the settings menu and if you dont see region right away go to system settings. It will either say region or locale, depending on if you have the new xbox experience or not. if you never had xbox live on it and you bought it new you have the old version.
