You cannot play games purchased from other regions on your Xbox 360 without hacking the firmware. It is programmed to disallow this to combat piracy, unfortunately.

I would strongly recommend NOT hacking the firmware, because it comes with many, many disadvantages. The firmware is the code that runs the device, like an OS.

- With some firmware hacks you cannot go on Xbox Live.
- You can be banned permanently from Xbox Live, your console AND your gamertag.
- Your warranty will automatically devoid.
- You can mess up your entire console, with no help because of no warranty as mentioned above.
- Sometimes, there's no going back from a hacked firmware.

If you would still like to hack your firmware, make sure you do your research, and make sure you get it from a place you absolutely trust with lots of people saying it works and was easy. Some mean people have released fake firmware hacks that destroy your console.

Hi we brought wii games from thailand is there anyway they will play on our australian WII


(If you just want to keep your Wii system normal) Nintendo games are put onto DVD-ROM discs, Australia's and Thailand's DVD region codes are different, so it would not be compatible. Austrailia is in Region 4, Thailand is in region 3.
(If you want to Mod your Wii) However, you could Mod your Wii, most mod chips are able to circumvent region coding and copy protection, which will let you play games created in different regions.

Here are some Pros and Cons of modding your system with a mod chip.
PROS:
You can play back up copy's of your games. You can play games from different regions (Such as you want to) You can play homebrew games. (User created Wii games)

CONS: 1.This WILL void your warranty 2.Some updates may try and Brick your Wii (Make system inoperable, you will have to buy a new one.), always read what people say about the new update before you update if you have a modded system.
3.Keeping your Wii up to date is very important especially when you are playing out of Region disc games, you could brick your system if you don't be careful.

How to play incorrect region games?


you cant make the xbox multiregion. The only way to play other region discs is to flash the firmware of the dvd drive and then the xbox gets instantly banned, plus you will only be allowed to play that regions games. So if you flashed a european xbox with say japanese then you could only play japanese games not european. If you jtagged the xbox then you can play any region no problems, but again it would get banned , only older xboxes can be jtagged and they are hard to find and not cheap to buy

Best bet is to buy an original xbox for whatever region to play the games

XBOX games are region locked.

You cannot play the disc from other regions.

For example, in USA we cannot play games from United Kingdom or Japan.

It is like DVD Movies, which are region locked.

The PS3 Games are not, you can play them from any region.

Try to contact XBOX to see if they can send you a replacement for your original xbox for your region.

God Bless You!

I have a Sony PSP model PSP-3004 VB, which supports region 2 discs. How can I make it play discs of any region ?


What i have heard is that games are not region restricted. However videos are. You can play any game you want, but movies that are not from your region may not play.
There are some PSPs that have no region restriction that can play anything and everything, but that isn't what you have.

Wont play on my xbox 360 new hour of victory game says wrong region wont play


This sadly means the game and Xbox 360 console aren't the same region. (Rather the game is region locked, meaning unless you have a Xbox 360 that plays those regions, the game is non-playable because the console can't read the disc.) There really isn't any solutions for this, other than take the game back to the store and ask for your money back because the region of the game doesn't play on your Xbox 360. Always make sure when buying Xbox 360 games that it's the right region code. (Or that it's a region free coded game) There are a few games like that out, one being Borderlands for example.

If it says PAL on the cover of the game for example, the game covers most of Asia, Africa, South America, Australia, New Zealand, and most of Western Europe. (List of common PAL regions can be found here.)
There are a few other region codes for games, so you better make sure you are buying the ones for your region.
Hope this was of some help.

Xbox region 1 game will not play on original console,(region 4).


Hi, yes you will have to modify the console, which in turn will allow you to play multi region games. If you dont want to modify, I suggest you buy a region 1 console. All game console manufacturers have these region locks on so that you buy consoles and games to match where you are located (USA-ntsc-region 1, Au/NZ-pal-region 4, and so forth) Hope this provides a solution
