Re: region code

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

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.

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!

I amin india and i bought a xbox 360. my xbox i can play pirated disc. However for some games i am getting the message disc code is incorrect for this region. what should i do to make those disc...

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.

Will not play dvd' says the region code is not correct!! but games are fine

This is not a problem with your PS3. DVD's come with a region code lock that won't allow the disc to be played if it's in the wrong region. This is a common occurrence when movies are bought off the internet from different countries. There is nothing you can do about it that I know of, save for returning the discs for a different region code. Thanks.

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.

This is because you bought the ps3 from america, it will not let you play anything you buy from europe, i had this problem when i was in germany too i had bought the ps3 in michigan and tried to play in germany and got the same exact error code. i just ordered all my games from amazon. but eventually bought a new ps3 from their region. i dont know why sony does this i personally think it is to stop illegal burning via the internet.

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.
