I realise this may be something already answered but, after checking for about 30 minutes on these forums, I couldn't find any identical situations which could give me an answer - my apologies if this has already been covered though!
Last week, my UK bought xbox360 (1st released version) finally died on me. However, because I was already in the process of moving to Japan due to work, I didn't really care that much. I bought a new Japanese xbox360 yesterday and, luckily, all my non-Electronic Arts games work fine.
However, I have 3 questions in relation to my situation:
1) Why don't EA games work on my Japanese xbox360 (I brought 23 games over with me and only the 3 EA games are refusing to play)? Is there a patch or way to make them work? I am not fluent in Japanese and don't really fancy forking out again for games that I have already purchased.
2) If I buy downloadable content (eg: gears of war 2 map packs), will I have problems? I am on a Japanese xbox360 which is tied to the Japanese xbox live marketplace. I have a UK version GOW2 and am not sure if the extra maps will work or not. I did NOT buy them before leaving England so I can't just try re-downloading unfortunately.
3) Will a UK points card work here in Japan? Not a huge issue as I only have 60 MSpoints right now but I have no idea where I can buy them from as the 4 games stores I entered had no idea what I was talking about (I don't yet have a Japanese credit card so I can't buy direct from Amazon or MS).
Thanks in advance for any help that can be given!
