The disc's region code is incorrect for this console


There are two types of Xbox, NTSC and PAL. Games sold at U.S. play in NTSC consoles, games from europe and some other countries play in PAL, the only thing you can do is buy that game for NTSC consoles (buy the game inside u.s.). Try to sell the one you have on ebay to people at other countries.

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.

I cannot play most of the games due to region code....I have an Xbox 360 pal as well as Xbox 360 ntsc console....the latter has burnt up but its DVD ROM is alright....if i change the DVD ROM of pal to ntsc...


Interesting question.

Yes you can do that but you don't need to replace the DVD Rom.
You need 2 tools: PAL-to-NTSC converter box and a voltage converter. Don't know where to buy these though. Sorry.

If you manage to get those tools then you need to refer to a guide. Here's a detailed one from e How:

Hope you get it working.

Where can i find the region code for a wii console bought in saudi arabia?


On the setup page (the wrench) There should be a number with a letter on the top right corner. The number is your firmware version and the letter is your Region code.

U=USA NTSC, P=PAL, J=Japan NTSC.

Good luck!

Cant play NTSC games


If you can't play NTSC games then that means your xbox is probably a PAL version. There's not really much you can do about this except to buy PAL version games :(

BTW, NTSC and PAL refer to different regions. NTSC Is north america, while PAL is usually europe.

When i play the game gears of war2 on my xbox360 an error ocurrs your xbox360 region code does not match


you need a new one.no other solution for that.
but this time becareful when you buying because YOU MUST KNOW YOUR XBOX IS IN WITCH REGION.
on the game title uper right side you will see like
PAL or NTSC or UC or *** or REGION FREE written on it.
if you dont know any thing then just buy region free games.(by telling the shop keeper)or if your console is pal then only pal if ntsc then only ntsc if ..bla bla bla

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. =]

I purchased my XBox 360 from overseas (chipped) & some of the games is asking for a code before it can start. Do you know what code they are asking?


Well if you bought it from overseas it is a PAL system and here in the USA we use the NTSC version. You might need to buy your games overseas or just MOD it to play burnt games and DL them off the net.
