    I did have someone on my friends list from HK, deleted now as we hardly ever played. I think Could it be due to the time differential, about 11 hours.

    I have encountered a few aussies on XBL, and sometimes I end up in a all japanese room. Like people have said probably region/player matching, I always choose custom match in gears of war though so I can see what the network rating is like so, which has more choices than quick match so might be more likely to join groups which wouldnt normally get chosen
