    Is it possible to play U.K pal games in high definition on an imported U.S XBox?

    Depends on the game. I assume you mean progressive scan.

    Xbox games are region encoded through software so some games can be played over other regions.

    Yes Elitedono, progressive scan (480p - 720p) is what I'm after. I've looked back at the previous posts about modded U.K XBoxes etc. etc. but can't seem to find a definitive answer to my question.

    Does anybody know which games (if any) will work on a U.S XBox.

    Thanks, Wireman.

    Yep... well I have a US xbox and I have Mech Assult, Unreal Championship and Rainbow Six 3 (Pal versions) and they run ok. I know there are a few more games that are not region encoded but I can't remember. Sorry.

    Thanks for your input. I think I'll get it anyway and import some games from the U.S, especially as the exchange rate is so good at the moment. Now to find a good reliable company to imprt from.
