"Those lucky Japanese gamers can play a handful of US Xbox 360 games right now

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.usWe still long for the day when we can pick up a handful of games from Japan and play them on our home consoles, without the life risks associated with dodgy voltage step-downs. With the Xbox 360, it looks like we could be moving closer to our dream.

Although we haven't been able to get hold of any US games ourselves, word from Japan says that a handful of American Xbox 360 titles do not have a region lock, and work fine on a Japanese region console.

The supposed region-free titles discovered include Call of Duty 2, Condemned: Criminal Origins, Gun and Tony Hawk: American Wasteland, suggesting that the console's stance on region locking is the same as on the original Xbox, leaving the decision up to the publisher.

There's no news yet on whether any foreign region games work on a PAL Xbox 360, but we'll be sure to let you know as soon as we get our hands on some US titles." [link]
