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?
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?
"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.
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."

For the 360 launch I actually gave the guy an extra $40 at the end of the deal because it was freezing ass cold and raining for 24 hours straight. I brought him food and coffee and stuff while he was waiting, so it worked out for both of us. "" Yes...and my strategy will be the same as always. Pay a bum $50 to wait in line for me all day and all night. Rip the $50 in half, he gets the other half when I show up to take his place. Worked like a charm for both the PSP and Xbox 360 launches.
