hi anyone know what games are region free?
i know call of duty 2
far cry
gun
tonyhawk
ghost recon
and a few others are but which are they?
i think this would help people that import games as it sometimes works out cheaper for games plus you get some games quicker
i use to import for a few other consoles with getting my consoles modified
but since ive not had my 360 long and ive got the extended warranty
i fear ill miss out on some bargins
so any help compiling this region free list would be great help to me and other game importers
:D

I think this has been discussed before, but the region free games are:

Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII
Call of Duty 2
Condemned: Criminal Origins
Dead or Alive 4
Far Cry: Instincts Predator
Full Auto
Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
Gun
Hitman: Blood Money
Moto GP 2006
Quake 4
Ridge Racer 6
Rockstar Games Table Tennis
The Outfit
Tomb Raider: Legend
Tony Hawk's American Wasteland
X-Men: The Official Game

I've purchased all those in NTSC and worked perfectly on my PAL box :)

Does anyone know if any newer games are region free, I'll be going to the USA in a couple of weeks and intend to make the most of it. I'll also be oout there for the PS3 release, trying to decide if I should bring one back for EBay
reckon I could double my money on that.:drunk

Any 360 game from THQ, Ubisoft, Eidos & Activision have region free Asian versions up to and including Splinter Cell Double Agent. Also pretty much every 2K Games game is region free other than Oblivion. I'd preorder R6: Vegas to save $15-20 but I think Play Asia is already backordered and I don't know anyone else that sells the Asian/Chinese versions now that Lik Sang is out of business.

It's not 'confirmed' but every single Ubisoft game so far has been region free.

yes-asia is okey as well but I checked and they only have the US version of Rainbow 6. They have a fair few Asian games though if you want to import region free games. Although I just use play-asia normally.

I made a list of Asian and European games that work on NTSC Consoles, so you don't have to look at that ugly chart.

So will NTSC versions of those games work on European PAL?

I was hoping the Cabela games would be seeing as they apparently aren't on sale here.

Check Play-Asia's site. It tells you which game works on which console though from what I've seen, most region free games DO work on PAL systems.

I'm told that there are some titles that can be played on the NTSC consoles. One title, is Football Manager 2006.

Is there any validity to this? Can other titles be played on the NTSC 360?

I know a lot of people with NTSC playing Football Manager 06, Krazie even came 2nd in the site tournament :p

OCFP from these here forums has played 07 as well, so I'm guessing that it works too.

Those are the only ones I am currently aware of.

There is already a thread posted somewhere where I compiled a pretty comprehensive list updated to Christmas, with all regions to work on US consoles.

Webb, I'm sure you could merge or something.

If I had a link to said thread I could merge ;)
