Default Xbox 360 region free games

Hello

I read on the xbox-scene forums that some of the games are region free for the Xbox 360. The list is here.

Has anyone played any of these games on non-UK 360s, or vice versa to see that it actually works before I start ordering games from the US !!

I ordered Call Of Duty 3 from Play-Asia. The copy that arrived was Australian PAL and works fine. Only took around 4 days too.

I can confirm that the US version of Viva Pinata works.

Seems to have gone up now. Just checked back on my order and it was £23.88 plus £1.65 postage, so £25.53 all in. So I was a little out on my recollection.

COD3 seems to have gone up in price on there, but there are plenty for £23.92 or less. The prices seem to change day to day, perhaps due to exchange rates.
