NTSC disc on PAL console

I've just bought this game on eBay for 5 for my brother, but when it arrived it was an NTSC disc, which I am sure won't play on my PAL console. Wasn't noted on the description, and the seller was from the UK.

I have messaged the seller and I'm awaiting reply, but in the meantime I am in loggerheads whether I should try the disc or not. What are the risks? If I play an NTSC disc on a PAL console, do I risked doing damage to my TV or Xbox, or even risk being BANNED from Xbox Live (both account and console)? Truthfully I have no idea if the console is modded or not as it was bought second hand on eBay.

i don't think putting an NTSC disc in a PAL console will be damaging, it just won't work. i've never tried it, but i imagine you'd just get a message pop up saying that it is unreadable or something.

you can't be banned for doing this either, but obviously that doesn't apply considering you can't use it anyway. just wait for the seller to get back to you, and at the very worst, you're a fiver down. take your revenge with a strongly worded 80 character negative feedback review

Nevermind mate, I discovered on play-asia.com that NTSC US version works on PAL, so I tested it myself and worked to perfection.
