Hi All,

Sorry if this has been covered - did a search and didn't come up with the info i was after.

Basically, i'm in australia - and i dont want the censored version (more because it offends me that our country does this stuff than for want of content). But due to the region lock, buying a US copy is out of the question.

Does anyone know how strict the region lock is, is it like DVD's - where i could get say a copy from singapore or something and it will work?

basically i'm looking for a way around it, anyone know one?

Would the UK edition not work? I don't think the regions for X360 games are the same as those for DVDs... Wouldn't any PAL version of the game work in an Aus console?

Not sure if this helps any, but us UK folk import alot of titles from play-asia (ones that work!) that are supposedly region free and they are fine online.

Infact my copy of Crackdown is the asian one covered in foreign writing and I have played that online no bother.

My Halo 3 isn't a UK edition either. I don't know where it was from but it has Aisan writing on the cover art and is PAL format. It also worked fine online. I don't think ou'll have any problems at all.
