I have just bought an French Xbox 360 from a French friend with 30 French games. Can I use this console back in the UK on Xbox Live? Can I use the games on an English console? What will my limitations be?
Judging from this page I found during my quick search, it seems what regions a 360 game is compatible with vary depending on the game. However, the UK and France are both considered to be in the PAL territory. Worst case scenario is you may be unable to play certain games against English-speaking people on Xbox Live, however I'm not sure.
