    Xbox 360 NTSC

    Hi guys,
    I have an old xbox 360 here which i have discovered is an NTSC US console after years of thinking it was broken......


    Does Microsoft offer some sort of region conversion program
    or
    Is there anyone who would be willing to ship some games over to the UK for me (fully paid)(new or preowned)

    Im not looking to get this thing chipped as i would like to go online AND because I have those uncrackable Liteon drives...

    If it's one of the older big black ones (not 360), you can only do a hardmod with it to switch regions. Even then you wouldn't be able to play on Live with it, because you would have to do so in a modded state.

    EDIT:

    If you have an HDTV, you can do component cables with it and be fine though, but still won't be able to play PAL games without any type of mod, hard or soft.

    it plays HALO3 PAL and a couple others

    It is the old White one, the premium.
    Live does work, only the PAL games dont (as expected)

    K. Yeah my knowledge of 360s are very slim. Sorry I can't help you further.

    I checked the shipping costs here:
    http://ircalc.usps.gov/
    It would be about $20 USD for me to ship you a small flat rate package, and I'm not sure if I'd be able to stuff a 360 game case inside of it properly, but if I can, it'd probably fit two of them.
    I think it would be more cost effective for you just to buy a PAL XBOX 360 for the long term and sell the NTSC 360 in your area as sort of a novelty thing to a collector, or something.

    Hey Bo$$,

    I had to write this here cause you have exceeded your private message limit....:laugh:

    Anyway, here is the message.

    New it would be about £28 and used about half that plus shipping which is pretty cheap from here.
