US and EU games are different formats (NTSC & PAL respectively) Shocka, so unless the game is region free it will not work here in the UK.

But if it did work I can see no reason why you would get banned, if the disc is a legitimate copy.

Did this solve your problem?

So according to wiki the NTSC/U version will work on a PAL console OP.
You should be good to go.:)

PAL and NTSC are display technologies and are a separate issue to region locking, you'd need to have very old equipment for it to be unable to handle both types of signals.

 

Not only is wikipedia a decent source to find out if a game is region free or not but a site called http://www.Play-Asia.com also mentions if a game is capable of running on different region consoles, though usually after release.
