Okay, so I have two american region games which work on my 360 (UK region), so I'm wondering... these games actually work in my console, does this mean Region 1 (US region) DVDs will work on my console or not?

Not every game is region locked. I would say 7/10 games are region free and can be played on any console. The exception is Japan games which are always region locked.

So it all depends if the game is region locked.

I mean DVDs, movies. :)

Similar to Xbox 360 games, there are some that are region-free and there are those that are region-locked.

It's just a matter of checking the DVD region code prior to purchase.

Just look to see if they are locked to only work on NTSC devices. Should say on the back if they only work on NTSC electronics. Why not just buy the DVD in your format.

Well not every DVD is available in your own format or country.

For instance, I had to import Don't Be a Menace to South Central because it wasn't available in Australia.

It works out cheaper at times also. :p
