RUMOR: WRC 2 will be Region Free for Xbox 360

If hackers and message boards are to be believed, WRC 2 is region free for Xbox 360. A quick Google search of “WRC 2 region free” will show the wave of websites boasting its content. Early copies of WRC 2 are already floating around the Internet, and those who have released details of the WRC 2 Xbox 360 disc say it is region free. (Black Bean, Milestone, WRC 2 - The Official Game, WRC 2: FIA World Rally Championship, Xbox 360)

How can a game be region free when the console is not?
PirateThom  +   1584d ago
Even though the console is region locked, it's locked to a region's specfic discs. However, some discs are region free, they'll play on any console anywhere.

Ah I see, that's interesting. Thanks for clearing that up. I never knew.

I have a sneaking suspicion that PirateThom has already played WRC2....

I have not, certainly not through illegal means anyway.

I was very disappointed with the demo of the first game and can only hope this is better.

You can't trade in region free games at game stores though, I had MotoGP NTSC and it worked fine in my PAL console but I could not trade it

I don't think it matters nowadays, as the games come out mostly in the same week worldwide, with Tuesday for the states and Friday for UK. I remember years ago games would be months away in the UK. I bought and played Resident Evil a good 6 months from an import shop before it was released in UK, and that was.just wrong.

Well the matter here is that WRC 2 is only coming out in Europe. They are not releasing it in USA, Japan or any other territory. They have also not announced any digital distribution.

There you go then, that's why it's region free.

I hoped for dlc free.

I just wish it had the graphics and race-sim experience that we get from the likes of Dirt3, just to give the "real" official cars more cred.
