Wow, so we found six versions of Scene It? Bright Lights, Big Screen today. Two are in English, two in French, one German and one Spanish. We're going to add one of the English versions to the site for now, but keep an eye out for people playing any of those, I don't want to add them without knowing for sure they're real.

Hmmm 6k huh...

2x English [1 NTSC + 1 PAL]
2x French [1 NTSC [Canada Possibly] + 1 PAL]
1x German [1 PAL]
1x Spanish [I wonder if its Middle/South America or is it Spain/Portugal]

So by my estimate if it is stackable 2-3 will be NTSC and 3-4 will be PAL... I wonder if it will be a straight translation [everything is translated] / region specific [regional movies included] / all in english but just different versions / or something totally different.

I for one think it will be straight translations as adding region specific movies / questions would be too much of a hassle with licensing issues. But then again why would they need so many versions oh well I guess we'll soon find out either way...

As usual there is more than one version of PES this year, so far only two but I'm sure an NA version will pop up like the last three years.

Ebay.uk is where I get mine. That and friends overseas help a bunch. Game.com doesn't ship to the states, neither does amazon.uk.

Okay, I have a question. It might have been answered but I didn't see it so I wanted to ask.

Do I have to buy a whole new xbox 360 that is compatible with the said game to get the achievements? Like do I have to have a NTCS-J xbox 360 to play Asia games because of the regional protection OR can I just get the region free asia games and play them on my xbox and still get the achievements?

I'm sorry if it's already been asked and answered, but I really would like to make sure before I started getting games.

NTSC-J games will require a Japanese console.
NTSC games will require an American console.
PAL games will require a European console.

Region free games will play on any of those consoles but they aren't stackable, every stackable game as far as I'm aware is specific to a region or country (Japan, Korea, Germany, etc).

Only RF stackable game is Turning Point FR/DE, all the others require a PAL/NTSC-U/NTSC-J console.

Yes, though you do not necessarily need to buy them from Asia. Ebay.com sometimes has NTSC-J consoles for sale.

No you could just get ONE for both of those. You don't need a Korean and Japanese you just need a NTSC-J for either.

I'm thinking the Australian version of L4D2 will stack, anyone else thinking this too? They've removed a lot of gore like what happened with SOF Payback.

Stackable games are never region free (excluding Turning Point FR/DE and the PC games.)

Actually, you are only thinking from the point of view of NTSC/U (American) gamer. If your Xbox 360 is a NTSC/J or PAL there is a lot of stackable games to be played even if you own just one system.

For example,
- Dynasty Warriors 6: 3 times on NTSC/J machine
- BioShock: 3 times on NTSC/J machine, 2 times on PAL machine
- Almost every game that stacks with German or Japanese can be played at least two times if you have a PAL machine or NTSC/J machine

As far as stackable games go, NTSC/U is the only region that absolutely cannot play other regions without the need to purchase another console from another region. (With the only exception being Turning Point FR/DE as you have already mentioned)

Wow... I didn't think PAL would stack as well. I have Japanese and Korean version now and waiting for USA version. I don't have PAL Xbox so I will skip that but that is interesting.
