Xbox DVD's bought from India not played in Xbox bought from USA!

Hi Folks

I bought an Xbox 360 with kinnect and couple of DVD's from US. It plays well from my console. Downloaded 'Gears of Wars' from the Xbox games and works well. 

When I recently went to a Game shop in Sandton, SA for Buying Gears of Wars-Judgement with the wireless controller bundle. The guy from Xbox sales and support adviced me that games wouldn't run in my console if I get it from SA. Please advice.

Regards, Manjunath

Sorry to hear about your problem.

 

But, the guy from Xbox sales is correct.  This is due to video incompatibilities.  India uses PAL video format and the U.S. uses NTSC.

 

You cannot play the opposite video DVD or game disk on the opposing console.

 

Sorry, but there is no other option aside from returning the disk.
