    some friends who live in new zealand have just bought an xbox and found the games to be a little more expensive than they thought. i mentioned that pre owned ones here were a few £. so when i next post them they asked if i could get a few games.

    but im not sure if they would work. i think australia would be compatible but ive no idea about new zealand.

    cheers.

    Hi, The Format for UK, Europe, Australia & New Zealand are all PAL, so uk games should work fine on an xbox in New Zealand.

    You could say to them to softmod the xb so then they can run everything.

    thanks for the replies.

    i will pass on the info about soft modding, might be something they can do.

    but ill pick up some pre owned games to send to them.

    cheers.
