GTA IV middle eastern version - will this work on XBOX live?

Hi all,
I finally received GTA IV today from shopto.net... and it is a copy that is in english packaging but with arabic (i think) on it., which also says that it's for sale only in middle eastern countries. Before i unwrap it and play it, can anyone tell me if this version will work fully on xbox live and that i won't get locked out or something?

If you're XBOX can play the disc, then you are fine.

They can't detect which version you are playing on XBOX Live, and as a result are unable to ban people, or restrict features.

Enjoy :)

Hire it out for one night and then swap it at your local dvd rental shop. :thumbsup:

shop.to are one of the worst companies out there for using any region games. they're bound by UK laws to supply a UK version of the game... they buy from dirt cheap and sell here for more profit... scum

ask for a refund as its lost a lot of resale value! Unless it was advertised as being from a different region of course

Not bothered about resale, i never trade games in and this is one i'll want to keep! but fwiw, i don't think they specified either way about what region it would be.

I don't care what it is, as long as it works on XBL!

Seems shopto have hit a all time low. I would ring them up and complain.Im going to stop using them as i have received a few European games that state "Not for sale in the UK"

I got the same here. I used to think they were a great company (normally 24 hours delivery etc) but having received a game which says "Not for supply in the UK" I'm not so sure.

Didn't get a free xbox live voucher either! Humph.

i got a copy from shopto.net also , just noticed the same, surely they breaking trade descriptions etc, as this is also advertised on their website as a PAL edition.

They say they're not, and are just sending out the copies that the publisher sends them. I'm not so sure though, I paid the same amount as anyone else who bought it from the site, and got a different product...
