Can I play Battlefield 3 PAL on NTSC-U XBox 360?

Is it region free or locked? Does anyone have a hands-on experience doing this? I tried finding information, but didn't find any so far.

I have found one source that says that it works fine, and a few posts on this EA Forum also say that it works fine. Unfortunately I cannot confirm this myself as I have a PAL console.

Good to hear. Thanks for posting the outcome, Sandeep. – Nathan Dries Feb 24 '12 at 21:59

I found a chart that says the PAL version should work fine with an NTSC/U Xbox 360, unless you bought a PAL version intended for sale in Germany, Poland, or Russia:

Note that games sold in and intended for use in Germany, Poland and Russia are very likely to be region-locked even though other PAL-country versions of the same game are not.

Note also that the same source says that it won't work with an NTSC/J Xbox 360.
