A Really Simple Question
« on: 16 May 2008, 22:10 »

Alright, so this question might seem incredibly simple and stupid for a lot of you out there.....but I'm going to ask it anyways because I'd rather seem like an idiot than do the action and get burned for it.  I live in BC, Canada.  If I buy a PSP or a DS game from Europe or Japan or wherever....will it run on my PSP which I bought in Canada?

Yes. PSP games are region free, UMD movies are not, not like that matters anymore.

Nintendo DS are multi-regional, imported games from Japan/somewhere will work on a console you bought from where ever you live.

Both systems are completely free of region coding. However, that doesn't mean you can buy a game from Japan and it will magically translate itself into English or anything.

I would hope not.....Clearly games aren't going to magically translate themselves, I don't have a problem with that at all.

Since we're on the topic of seemingly simple questions (and since my question really doesn't merit its own thread), I don't suppose anyone knows whether the North American extra hard drives for the Xbox 360 will work on Australian machines?

I don't know for certain, but I would venture yes. I see no reason why the hardware accessories would be any different between regions.

I think you're jumping to conclusions on Bryan here, Emilio. While it seems obvious to some as common sense as far as the translations, assuming never works out. No offense to the original poster, but I'd err in favor of caution myself considering they didn't think to do a simple google search. For curiosity's sake, I ran the question through google and had an answer for both in under twenty seconds.

Apparently, yeup.  I did a quick google search and the implication I found was that XBox hardware is region free.
