    Hi guys,

    Not sure if this has been asked before, i couldnt find anything in a search.

    Anyone know if anything is coming out to enable the 360 to be a multi Region DVD player rather than just region 2?? Something similiar to the region X on the PS2?? or a hack or something?

    My current player is quite old now (6 years!! :eek: ) and although top of the range at the time it is a bit outdated (no prog scan etc) so was wanting to pack it up and use the 360 but cant until i can get it to play all my Region 1 discs. :(

    Cheers Rob

    Currently, no. I think the general consensus (and my opinion too) is that the 360 is a bit ropey as a DVD player - it's a novelty feature rather than a serious dedicated-DVD-player-replacement.

    Well, an xbox with XBox Media Centre (XBMC) is arguably far more useful than any standalone DVD player but that's really going off-topic...
