..... at an work event in Hong Kong.

Rented three games.

Two didn't work.

Bloody region locking :(

Don't need an answer, just venting/whining about it.

Another case of stupid copyright. Why region lock games? Or any other content type for that matter.

The worst thing about Xbox region locking is that there's no way to tell whether a given title is locked by looking at the packaging. I have a handful of games that claim to be US region only, but work on an NZ console. Fortunately Play-Asia has a list of tested games.
