HD-DVD Drive, does it use the region of the 360?


Hi there, sorry for lazy question its just a quick one.

Basically, will an american HD-DVD drive play region 2 discs on a region 2 xbox 360?

I guess what I mean is, does the HD-DVD drive have its own region or just use the 360s....thereby meaning I can use an american drive with the xbox 360 with no drawbacks for DVDs....as HD-DVDs are region free anyway....

Ta. :smashin:

AFAIK there is no region encoding on HD DVD discs, as yet.
