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?
Silent hill 2 backwards compatibility
Lists it and says that only the us version works.
The only version of the game that works on the xbox 360 is the american version of the game, according to wikipedia. The uk version doesn't work.
" @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: 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. http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/games/backwardcompatibilitygameslist.htm "ah but if doesn't work on yours, don't get your hopes high. :(
Ah! i looked for it, but couldn't found nothing special, but some references made me doubt that.
" @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.
