    I know on the Wii there are different methods to get a different regions game to work on your console, but does anything exist for the 360?

    i cant see GTA4 not being region free either which will really suck for either us or the americans depending who gets it first.

    I'd love a early pal region locked release ,simply because it just seems every time there is a early ntsc release it's region locked , but every time it's a early pal it's region free. Could just be me being paranoid though or only noticing the locked ntsc as I can't play them .

    It'll be region-free ... the simultaneous world-wide releases pretty much guarantees that ...

    Hopefully , long as I can play I'll be happy [​IMG] . Just have a horrible feeling that if ntsc gets an early release for once , it'll be locked.

    If the language isn't universal (e.g. Japanese) it'll probably be region locked.
    If the western publisher doesn't like Asian pirates (e.g. Rockstar) it'll probably be region locked.

    I don't think GTA4 will be region free, even Australia might get its own region GTA4 instead of US/EU versions.
