I bought doom 3 BFG edition PAL.

My console is PAL too but keeps telling me I have the wrong region.

I was told by support that installing the game to drive on my 360 S might solve this.
So i bought a hard drive...

But i'm still looking for the so called install button!!!
The game will not start and neither will dark souls "also PAL"

Yet 20 other games "PAL" work perfectly.

Suggestions?

To install a game with the game in the disk drive go to the main dashboard screen, highlight the disk, and hit I believe Y (the option should be at the bottom of the screen). Once you hit Y there will be an option to install the game.

Nope Y ejects the disc.

so the answer is... the games are not compatible with my region... when they very much should be.

According to microsoft i should return the games... when these games are for my region.

I was then asked to rather buy the games online....using my amazingly overprices internet that is not uncapped.

GG WP.

SO how do i know what PAL REGION GAMES play on my PAL REGION XBOX....

Something doesn't makes sense.

I spoke very kindly and was godlike calm and clear, but i got a crap answer and even worse bloody problem now.
Since i have a xbox bought in south africa and games also bought in south africa and now my limited edition of dark souls is a limited pile of ***.

Nice book, nice disc, nice console.... cant play.
Awaiting a less retarded resolve.

Can you list some of the games you actually purchased that also have the PAL designation on the disk and the game box? I'm curious to see if the games you purchased from SA are actually Region Free and not region locked. That's essentially the only real explanation why your other games would work even if they say "PAL" on the disc and the box.

Hi again,

So it seems that is actually the issue, the games you've listed are actually region free games. This means that they can be either NTSC/NTSC-J/PAL, and they will work on any of the consoles.

Bulletstorm
Bioshock Infinite
Alone In The Dark

It would seem that you have yourself an NTSC console or an NTSC-J console, and not a PAL one.

Nope sorry wrong.

Region free games perhaps...
But NTSC console... no not posible.

"repeating myself" It's a PAL console.

You can try this out if you can get your hands on an NTSC disc or an NTSC-J disc. There really isn't any other explanation for you, honestly.
