    just got a "ccclx" eternal sonata ntsc release. burnt it to disk, but my ntsc x360 says it's the wrong region.

    is there a specific patch for this game?
    are ntsc games divided into sub regions?

    American Eternal sonata is region locked to ntsc/u only (American systems). Japanese , and Asian systems are also ntsc. So you'll have to get the relevant release , either the Asian version or Japanese. No idea if they will include English and the Pal version is locked to Pal only , so can't use that either.

    this was in the nfo of the game that didn't run:

    Title: Eternal Sonata
    Date: 9/18/07
    System: XBOX360
    Region: NTSC/U


    i'm not sure whether my x360 is originally from japan or hongkong.

    for japan i'm guessing i need NTSC/J
    but whats the asian/ HK version? NTSC/A?

    Far as I know Asian 360 games are ntsc/j as well , so will run fine on either. Easy enough to tell if your 360 is Japanese or Asian , if it came with 220V power supply and a uk style plug , it's Asian , if it didn't , it's Japanese. Not that it really matters as they will both run ntsc-j games.

    According to play-asia , there is a English language Asian version , so I'd be hunting for that.
