Sweet, just need to find a cheap copy somewhere :>

Is this just for American NTSC or the English language version NTSC J

Only US version since the Japanese version IS region locked.

However Im not sure whether it is 100% working. Maybe the DVD decrypter is not recognizing the region lock.

I hope though since I live in Europe and I just Imported the game for lots of money :(

I might get it on the 27th. I will post if it works

Well i also checked Person 3 FES, Persona 3, KH 2, and a few dvds to check it, and they were all correct, unless 360 games region locks are massivly different I don't see why it would read otherwise.

Region 8: Special international venues (airplanes, cruise ships, etc.)

Fasten your seat belt and enjoy Star Ocean 4!

I live in Europe aswell, so if i order this from the States it will work here?

laaakokaracha3553d ago

As HarukoHex said, it wouldnt really make sense if it doesnt work.

Im pretty much convinced it should work. Thats why I ordered it.

I should get it in a couple of days so I will post if it works.

Once again, thanks HarukoHex for testing this!
