    As title suggests, can anyone tell me which current and upcoming games are region free for the 360?

    My mother in law wants to buy me a game and she lives in the states :eek: so I want something that will work on my UK machine.

    Do a search.....but this once....

    it seems that the only way to tell is by waiting for it to be released- as a side note- EA games have never been region free so if its EA then I'd pretty much say it isnt going to work.

    Alot of forum members use movietyme as they test US games on a UK 360 and highlight the ones that work.

    It's a shame that it looks like College Hoops doesn't work, there's no way they are going to release that one outside of the US.

    Does anyone know if the Japanese version of Quake 4 supports English text?

    None of the Japanese games are region free so it probably wouldn't make any difference unless you had a Japanese console in the first place.
