Was just wondering if anyone have tried to use the same gametag on two 360's?
I have a PAL box already and was thinking of getting a NTSC version as well since the releases are so incredible slow here.
I.eg NHL 2k6. It's not released until 31 March. What's up with that?

The boxes will of course not be signed on at the same time, but was wondering maybe there could be an issue like gamecards are tied to the 360 serial number or something like that.

Is it btw possible to get the premium system without paying a million on ebay? Over here it's impossible to get a 360 (except the core one).

yeah not a problem dude, wont take me more than about 3 hours lol

on the harddrives tho, shouldnt they be identical, just the dvd drives will be stup to use different regions???

but the hard drives should have some sort of region encoding on them, to tell them to work on a specific region (ntsc, pal) idk im not gonna send my hard drive across the pond though, you will have to find someone else willing to do that

i think GT is right about the hdd having region codes on it, but i dont know who a pal/ntsc working at the same time would be, i dont thnk it would work it would see you loged on two places or somesht....i dunno

that would be bad, either across the us then the pond, or hte pacific and then asia, and then eastern europe, neither sound good,

but scoob will go for it

You can play the NTSC Ridge Racer 6 on a PAL Xbox360. I don't know if this counts for all games, a friend of mine said it was.

I would say the best way to use one account on to systems would be to save the account on a memory stick and just plug that in to the console you want

I seriously doubt there is any region coding on the hard drive. I've never heard of such a thing. What kind of content would you be locking down by region anyway? Saved games? What's the point?

No, I'd be willing to bet a hard drive from a premium 360 sold in the US would work on a 360 from Japan or Europe. At least, there is no logical reason why it should not.
