    Hey Guys,

    I own an American Xbox 360, but an currently living in Japan. I was wondering if there was a list of games that also specified if there were region locked or not. I am getting a bit annoyed buying Japanese games and then finding that they will not play on my system. So, if anyone knows of a place that can tell me what games are region locked and what games are region free, that would be awesome. Thanks so much.

    Most, if not all, Japanese version games are Japan only. Asian versions are mostly region free, but I don't think they're easy to come across inside Japan.

    This is another region compatibility list.

    I heard there was a shop in akiba (IIRC) that sells non-Japanese version games. Don't know the store name though.

    Cool, thanks for the info, Ill take a look. Almost all the akihabara import stores are crazy expensive though, so its usually cheaper to by online and get them shipped. Ah well, guess I will just have to make due.
