    I have a question about playing a US bought game in the UK

    [quote user="Pinbot Fembot"]

    But it's not the TV that is the problem with PAL and NTSC, it's the Xbox. I have a PAL Xbox and it will NOT play most NTSC US games. Some are region free, but definitely not most. Believe me, I've tried. Check play-asia.com to see if your particular NTSC
    game is PAL compatible.

    [/quote]That is not strictly true.

    A 360 is capable of playing PAL and NTSC games and DVDs providing they are region free.

    The issue comes to whether the TV can handle the signals and any decent one of say the last 15 years will be able to.

    PAL and NTSC (no-one seems to remember Secam) might be used to describe regions but they are a separate issue to region locking.

    This is why they have to list NTSC/U and NTSC/J separately on Play-Asia and other sites.

    [/quote]PAL and NTSC are redundant standard definition formats (PAL=625i @ 25FPS / NTSC=525i @ 30FPS). These formats are no longer the standards, but the names of them are still used for the companies to region lock their product
    if they chose.

    uk game and us game

    NTSC games will work on a PAL console if that game is a region free game, I know because I have a NTSC game which plays perfectly well on my PAL console. Now if GTA V is a region free game then it will work on your PAL console, but if it isn't region free
    then it will not work on your PAL console.

    Cricket Game - Region restricted for US

    Sorry, that game is regional (only available in PAL regions and playable on PAL XBOX 360's). As far as I know they do not have region free games in regards to Cricket as there's really no support for the game in the USA.

    If you purchased your console in the United States your console is NTSC and can only play NTSC and Region Free games. Consoles purchased abroad are either NTSC-J (Japan), or PAL (EU). These cricket games are made strictly for PAL regions can they do not sell
    them in a region free format so it's not possible to play them on consoles purchased in the United States.

    Hopefully that clears up your concerns.

    Xbox in black and white

    You cant play U.S. games on a PAL console as the region is different.The only games you can play are NTSC or region free.

    As for your tv issue,sounds like it's an old tv that does not support NTSC playback.Modern HDTV's support both PAL & NTSC regions but older tv's tend not to.
