I know there's site where you can buy games before the US dates what sites, and will they play in the US VERSION OF THE XBOX I OWN??

Mostly interested in special and limited edition games.

Your thinking of playasia, and no they won't play on your console. You'll need the console from where the game is from to play.

You've got an NTSC console. Unless the game you're buying is region free you won't be able to play it. The other region encodings are PAL (Europe) and NTSC-J (Japan). To play games with that region coding you need a console with that region coding,

Incase you don't realise it, most games are actually region free.
So you can do this.

Just expected to get raped by Import Tax unless it's marked as being a gift, (which is illegal btw, so large companies don't do it).

If there are games that you can only play due to your region how do people stack those games?
