Default Will the US HDDVD Add-on work on a UK 360??

Hey all,

I'm from the UK and have a 360 with the add-on but i'm coming to New York in a month and am thinking about buying a US add on.

Why you ask? Well i have my ps3 also and i figured if i got a US 360 add-on then i could play my NTSC SD-DVDs on the 360 (upscale via VGA) and then use my PS3 to upscale my PAL SD-DVDs and play blurays.

But my fear is that the drive won't work on the PAL console. Any thoughts?

yeah it works fine, so you have no need to worry. I improted the HD-DVD drive when it first came out in the states to play on my UK xbox 360 and it works no problem. The only thing you need to watch out for is that the US drive comes with an adaptor for US wall sockets, so when you get back to the UK you will need to buy a UK adaptor for it...shouldn't cost you more than 5 for any electronics shop...I got mine from Maplins

Don't bother - If you buy an add-on from the States it will be identical to a UK one. The Region coding is done by the Xbox itself, NOT the HD Addon. If you wanted to play region 1 sd-dvds on an Xbox, you would have to buy a US Xbox.
