question - can japanese games play on any console? or are these consoles on some type of region setting like dvd players?

i was wondering because ive noticed a few games that have little to no achievements, and i assume their easy (minus not being able to read japanese) lol :p

You need a chip to convert it to play Japanese games. The only system that is region free is the DS/Gameboy.

Yeah i was thinking the same thing. It really wouldn't be worth it unless you know how to speak japanese.

There's no way to play other region games on Xbox360. And, that's not true. PSP, NDS, PS3 are also region-free :)

Unfortunately they don't have chips as of yet.... I know I looked lol, especially due to the federal government cracking down and setting out sting operations and shutting down most of the big mod chip companies. I am sure they are workin on a chip though but you may wind up having to send your unit out to get it done. I wound up buying a japanese console so i could play some of these games though it really is difficult not knowing how to read japanese at least you can set the console menus to english though... but instead of plot i let the gameplay speak for itself for these games.

Of course you can play Asian region games on NTSC-J console ;)
You can get it for 399$ HERE (http://www.play-asia.com/SOap-23-83-3clh-71-bq-77-1-49-en-15-xbox360-84-j-70-2c1t-43-99.html)
but shipping costs are high.

I think it cost me about 200 ish for each of my Japanese machines, this includes postage and import tax which is more than you'd expect :(

I'll pay about 400 for the console, Tales of Vesperia, Silent Hill, shipping and customs duty.
