Nothing for me right now as I have the games I'd want from that list, but if this keeps up it could be damn useful in the future.

This thread should be stickied and updated with new releases that are not region encoded.

just a look ahead.
Splinter Cell 4 is up on that list, and it is unknown if it will be US compatible right now.
However, it is 40 dollars and the preorder could always be canceled...

The cheapest way to order one game (that I have found) is to add a pack of tissues to your order.
Do a search for "Tempo petit" and add them along with any of the 360 games to your cart.
Use the $5 off paypal coupon posted earlier in this thread.
My total came out to be: $38.69 including s/h.
If you have found a cheaper way, please post!

Now I have to figure out what to do with the tissues...:mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Can anyone who ordered from them tell me about shipping? How were the items sent out and what were they packaged in?

I've got my eyes on Condemned, but it's sold out. Not a big deal, I've got a stack of games and have not played them much at all since I got Oblivion.

Anyway, am I the only one who did not care for Far Cry? I did not play the multiplayer though. I just played single player, so is the multiplayer good?

When I ordered from them I think there was five options for shipping. I ordered 3 games, cheapest shipping was in a bubble mailer, just under $10 no tracking but with insurance 7-10 days. The next choice was a box, standard delivery speed just under $11 no tracking but with insurance 3-6 days (if I remember right). That is what I selected. The other choices increased the speed of delivery but the cost went up pretty fast and included tracking as well as insurance.

Definately hold off on Fight Night Round 3, cause the asian version wont work on a US Xbox 360.

It's ALL english on my Far Cry 360 disc. The manual, the disc, the case insert. Only diff is the UPC says 'Made in Singapore' instead of 'Proof of Purchase' (but the UPC code is the same).

I'd also like to know this, as well as if there are any kind of gameplay/system differences (XBL, etc.)

I'd definitely drop $40 on Tomb Raider.

Is it confirmed that Tomb Raider will work on US systems? It seems like speculation, so just wanted to be sure before I place an order...

No, it wasn't, unless you are looking at something different than I am.
Both the list and product page still show it as compatible with US 360s.

Actually Cheapy i just checked and it says this
Tomb Raider: Legend US$ 39.90

or
save for later Eidos Interactive
Compatible with Xbox360™
Asia, NTSC J / Action Adventure

Then again i could be wrong since the compatibility guide says different.

Goto Xbox 360 click region free games

Tomb Raider isn't on the list anymore and it's been changed to just , J like said above

Hopefully it's just a typo, guess we'll find out soon when the orders start coming in

Just to be sure, I'll call them tomorrow and find out. I ordered a copy a couple days ago so I want to be sure. If not, I guess I have an excuse to go buy it tomorrow (apparently my copy wouldn't ship until May 2nd anyway).

Was it always on that list before? I ask because technically it's not region free unless it works on all NTSC region AND PAL, so far it's just listed as working in NTSC regions (here and Asia/Japan) so in theory it's not a confirmed region free game.
