I wouldn't be too shocked if nintendo tried to sue, it's basically wii motion plus and a nunchuk.

@Jeust: I have the uk version which doesn't work on my on my uk 360. Listed under backwards compatible on microsoft.com for uk 360's it says "silent hill 2: Dreams" which is the american title. the uk version is not listed in this section, so before i lay down cash and excess shipping costs i just want to know if the american xbox version will work in my uk 360.

@Jeust: Just wanna know if anyone has tried the u.s. version on a uk 360 as thats the only reason i can fathom why microsoft would list it under backwards compatible in the UK section.

@Jeust: Yeah but silent hill2: restless dreams is on the uk compatibility list but that is the title of the american version. 
Anybody actually tried this?

@Jeust: done and done. Not compatible
 
Anyone tried the american version in a uk 360?

Definitely compatibility. I assumed that it would work because it's a pal console. Does this mean that the american version will work on a PAL 360? Anybody tried this?

@timay: it did indeed, I can hear the menus moving but the "signed in to xbox live" message is statically frozen on the bottom of the screen.

Just bought a copy of silent hill 2 for Xbox because microsoft claimed it was backwards compatible for 360 on their website. Just put it in and I'm getting sound and no picture. Any Ideas?

When you weigh all the pros and cons of getting one at launch, it definitely makes all the sense in the world to wait; launch lineups are usually weak, launch consoles are usually buggy, and launch lines/campouts can be hell. But for whatever reason, the systems I got at launch are the ones I remember the best. Not that they were even the best systems, it's just that bringing home a shiny new, acrid smelling console that hardly anyone on your continent has lain hands on is always an experience. That always turns into an all-nighter, even if it's with a shitty launch game.

This was pretty much my experience with the Dreamcast and Sonic Adventure, it's amazing how one can will oneself into enjoying a game just because your caught up in the delerium of a sleepless night combined with the culmination of a year of anticipation.
