There is a multi regional hack for the Xbox 360. I have not had to do it. I would try and Google to find it.
Or if the game is not opened buy it in your region and return the other one.

Wil XBOX live canada pre paid codes work with United States xbox live accounts?


You can try it and see but I would guess not. I used to have a japanese 360 and I could not use United States or Japanese codes. Had something to do with it being detected as being in the United states so it was running off of US servers but a japanese 360. But with Canada it might because they are both region coded for NTSC. So try it and see.

Well i bought a game called 2k8 basketball here in philippines, but i bought my xbox on australia, then i tryed my game and it said, ( The disc's region code is incorrect for this consol ) so how can i...


Sorry you can't fix it. Most games are Region specific meaning that they are playable only on Xbox 360 systems from the specific region that you have. If you bought your Xbox 360 in Australia then it is likely PAL system and can only play Pal games.

"Determine whether the game disc is from the same region as the region where you purchased the Xbox console. To determine the region, view the back of the game package. Look for one of the following codes:

* NTSC: North America and South America (United States, Canada, Mexico, Chile, and Brazil)
* NTSC-J: Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan)
* PAL: Europe, South Africa, India, Australia, and New Zealand"

If the game you have doesn't match with your Xbox 360 Region then you won't be able to play it. (but a few games are playable on multiple regions, check list below)

Check out this site prior to buying games to help identify which games that aren't PAL might be still playable on your system.: http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-00-3-xbox360_compatibility_guide-49-en-84-t.html

Notice that NBA 2K8 US version is not compatible with PAL system. If you had bought the US version of NBA 2K9 then it would have worked.

My son bought a xbox game in florida how can he get it to work here in ireland????


In North America we us a different TV format. We use NTSC and in Ireland you use PAL. The game may be region locked. You can look up the game and see if it is locked. If it is, you can't play it.

I have an xbox 360 from the US and am now living in Ireland. Is there a plug that I can order to get power here and are the games purchased in Ireland compatable with the US console?


Games bought in Ireland are not compatible with your US console. So rather than buying a converter plug, you're better off buying a new Xbox 360 console. (Of course if you have brought games with you from the US these will ONLY work on your US console, meaning you need a plug. You should be able to find a converter in an electronics store.)
But do not forget that certain games are region free (meaning any console can play it, regardless of where the console was bought.
Just to warn you so you don't buy the same game for both your consoles, when you may not need to.
You can find a list of compatible games vs consoles here:
Region Free Xbox 360 Games

NTSC-U/C - US + Canada

NTSC/U - USA

PAL - Europe

NTSC/J - Japan

Hope this helps. =]

Weird lines and shapes when playing Grand theft auto 4


I have the basic 360 that came with nothing. Um this actually did happen with me a few times when I first bought the game. Exept my problem was a little different. 30 or so minutes into playing the game it would come over the side the game was unreadable or dirty. I had just bought the thing from wal-mart so I knew it was neighter. I just went out and bought one from game stop. Game stop seems like the best place to buy games anymore.
