If I sign in to a Xbox 360 UK-bought box, will I be able to use my US games?

Hi all,

Since Xbox has decided to skimp on the power system of my US Xbox (making it impossible to use here in the UK which I just moved to) without buying a step-down transformer, I'd like to buy a new Xbox 360 here in the UK, but continue to use my US GamerTag (where I have 30K points and 3,500 Microsoft points) to play US-titles (which I'll be getting shipped to me from time to time).  Will I be able to do this or will the UK box require UK games?

You'll be able to use your US account on the UK bought Xbox, though you'll find some trouble downloading DLC because of region locks.

As to whether the games will work that would depend on if they are region free or not but as a general rule it would be better to buy the games from the UK if you are going to be playing them on a UK 360.

Here are a couple of handy sites about which games will play in what regions. http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-00-3-xbox360_compatibility_guide-49-en.html and http://gaming.wikia.com/wiki/Region_Free_Xbox_360_Games
