Not sure how much postage is, maybe someone who has ordered from here before can enlighten us. Seems a good price to me though.

Edit, Just seen that it says postage is $3.40 so ~ £1.70. Not sure if this is the price for delivery to the UK though.

?? Why the cold votes?? Good price and Play-Asia are a great company?

HOT

Hot price but resale value limited and i think it'll be available somewhere for less soon.

Fingers crossed.

Voted hot for the people who must have it now.

Very nice price. Voted Hot.

Are youy sure thats region free. I'm not so certain that is to be honest.

Normally they say "No region protection" Which this one doesn't.

Be very careful, playasia are a pain if you order the wrong thing.

In fact I'm pretty certain this is not region free. Have a look at the listing for Halo 3 which is region free, you can plainly see the difference. play-asia.com/paO…tml

Sorry just realised it's not region free. However it IS PAL compatible.

Sorry everyone, but I think GTA IV is "Region Locked", so be careful and double check before you order.
I may be wrong but I've read it on a number of sites.

Haven't voted either way, just wanted to let people know.

Yeah, you wont be able to play this on a UK 360.

The thing is, it won't really come 'now' from Playasia - probably take a week or two to arrive.............

Sorry, this is region locked so a no go on a UK 360. Voted cold I'm afraid.

Ah my bad. I thought because it was PAL compatible then it would work. Seems the majority of people know it's region locked. Think I'll expire this if I can. Cheers for the info everyone.

But the site clearly states it works on PAL machines, or am I missing something here? Have they made a mistake?

It looks like the only region it won't work on is the USA.

PAL is just the video format. Has nothing to do with it.

If the console is region 2 say, and the game is region 1, it wont matter if they are both PAL, it wont work.

Its a bit like Australian DVD's, they are PAL too, but if the disc is region 4 only, it wont work on our region 2 DVD players.

Does video format have anything to do with their compatibility guide? Looks to me that the big green tick (=works on the specified system) shows that it works on PAL systems. It's not region free, but it will work on two out of the three 360 regions.

Apologies if I've got the wrong end of the stick here.

What about Lost Odyseey? play-asia.com/paO…tml

Wouldn't work on a PAL system?

Not sure why my posts keep getting deleted here, hope they don't all show up at once. Anyway once again - according to play asia this will work on PAL 360 systems (nothing to do with video formats). Looks like a good deal.

Actually maybe I am wrong, seems there are only 3 360 regions, PAL, NTSC-j and NTSC-U/A.

Play asia are definately saying its compatible with the PAL region.

But I cant find anyone who actually has said they have the NTSC-J version and has can confirm it works on a UK machine.

I do know play-asia are gits when it comes to ordering the wrong version though so......

Even so, I thought unless it originated from the UK then multiplayer won't work. I have read that on a couple of sites. Even so, its only £4 more on game and you will get it tomorrow.

A number of games work on the 2 out of the 3 regions, but aren't obviously region free. The Japanese version of Lost Odessey for example is another that works on PAL machines, but not US.

So a good deal if you want to save a few quid.

Maybe, but thats not the issue really, seems we may be doing the opening poster a dis-service.

Shame it's now been put so cold no one will look at it. Never mind someone might of got a bargain if it works. TO me it looks like it would, just whether someone is going to take the risk.
Could a mod please edit the title, as we have established it is not region free, but should work on UK consoles.
