Now I'm pondering the thought on acquiring a NTSC/J Xbox 360 just so I can get these imports in the future.. But, my question is.. Are Japanese 360's just as easily prone to RRoD symptoms?? I'd hate to buy one off eBay and have no warranty.. and then the damn thing breaks down on me a few months later.. lol
EDIT: What are the chances of the 360 ever becoming region-free through new DVD firmware mods?? I know this question is in the wrong forum. Sorry.
Foreign consoles are just like any other console... so Japanese consoles would be just as "prone to RRoD" as any other.
As for a region free firmware update. Based on what I know of the Xbox 360's security system (which is very little) we wont see region free capabilities until we have homebrew capabilities. Though I could be wrong.
Judging by the fact that this is MS published title and almost all MS published titles up to this point have been region locked, My guess is that this game will be too.
