Can't play FIFA 10. Different region.

Hi.

I just bought FIFA 10 in a recent visit to USA but can’t play it. An error message appears that says "different region". I’m from Portugal (Europe). Any help?

Hello, this is because it's a region mismatch. If your console is a European console that means you need to purchase games that say PAL on them and are from your region. That copy of FIFA 2010 is in NTSC format for United States/Canada. Unfortunately you will not be able to play the game because of the region lock on the XBOX 360 console. You will have to purchase FIFA 2010 for PAL.

You are right that FIFA 10 is region locked but it is not because it is NTSC. The NTSC/J version of FIFA 10 will work on a PAL console for example.

PAL and NTSC are display technologies, region locking is a separate issue. Any equipment of the last 15 years or more should be able to handle both PAL and NTSC signals.

I live in the UK and have a UK console. I also have several NTSC games which I've imported and they work without issue. Ghostbusters and Assassins Creed II being just a couple of them.

A couple of sites worth checking out about region free games are Region Free Xbox 360 Games and Play-Asia.com.
