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!
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
Region Code: 0xFFFFFFFF Region Free have a friend who had the same problem this is what he did to fix it.some nice fellows over at X-Box Headquarters forums have figured out a way to change the values on the DVD region code on hypervisor exploitable X-Box 360s.
Since the region code is directly tied in with the CPU key, for now this will only work on X-Box units with kernel 4532 and 4548. You'll also have to read/flash the flash chip in order for it to work. this might not be the best thing to do if you don't want to void the warranty though. i hope this helps you and have a nice day
yes, try changing region to region 1 as it is possible the umd (disk you bought) is designed not to run unless the region matches. you'll probably have to change it again if you want to read disks from different regions.
my kids have the psps on their holidays at the moment back tomorrow, i will check the restore menus tomorrow for you and see if there is any other changes possibley needed,
also it is worth a try but try changing xmd to umd disk ( eventhough this is for access to memeory usually for usb connection, although it could be something to do with ver 3.71) note youl have to change it back to enter usb mode from your computer.
is yours the PSP slim version or standard version, ?
the wii is region dependent, meaning that pal games require a pal console and ntsc games require an ntsc console, somewhere on the front or back of the game case it should say what region the game is. you probably just have the wrong region game disk, if so i would advise selling it and buying one for your region, if you have a lot of trouble finding the region code, or anything else, i would advise calling nintendos help line, they are very helpful and will almost always solvee your problem, they sent me a free power supply when mine stoped working. hope this at least helps a little, good luck.
