You can modify an Xbox such that it will play copied games, non region games (ie. in North America will play PAL games) and also install a hard drive that lets you copy games right to the hard disc and play them right from there (you get a big, computer harddrive).
so in THEORY you COULD rent a game, copy it and then return it.Â It'll stay on your system.
Of course I'd never do ANYTHING like that.
No, of course you wouldn't But no, don't have that stuff. Which reminds me, if I wanted a game that was not released in the U.S. or North America, can I still play that game on my PS2 or do I have to have something done to it? Seeing as how I'm interested in getting Rugby League 2 and perhaps the upcoming Cricket and Aussie Rules Football games from Ea, not being compatible with my PS2 would be a real annoyance.
They are not compatible. Those games normally aren't released in North America.
North American games (and dvd movies I think) work on NTSC I think... it's called Region 1 at any rate.
Europe and Oceania use the PAL system for games.
Thus and alas the games not released in North America are likely not going to play in your PS2 unless you get it modded to accept both burned and out of region games. If you live in a big city it shouldn't be that hard to find someone to do it.
Of course using burned games is only legal if one owns a copy of the game... the burned disc is a backup in case the original breaks. It is illegal to use burned games if you don't own the actual game. It is also illegal to exceed the speed limit when driving
It is good to support the makers of games you like though. Rugby 2005 was released and I picked it up straight away cause I want the sales figures to reflect the fact that we want EA to continue to release rugby games on a yearly basis. [/b]
