I see this has been getting decent reviews, I know it's on a timed exclusive to PS3 but I've heard rumours the 360 version is region free, can anyone here verify that or not? as playasia shows up as not tested.

Yep, its region free, I haven't personally tested it but I've read a number of news posts/reviews/etc that say its free and Dungeon Crawl (an import games shop down here) has the imported 360 version for sale, saying that its region free.

they said on Good Game that it was region free, so it must be, but also that Atari Australia had said the 360 version will be here before end of year.

Games consoles have been region locked forever. This generation of consoles was the first to not have mandatory region locking.

About 1/3 of 360 games are region locked I think. Most places that do trade-ins wont accept games that wont boot on a local console. As long as the game is PAL, you'll be fine. Most NTSC should work, but if it doesn't, there's nothing stopping you from returning the game to the store.

Someone needs to bump this thread again in about a month, just to keep the pattern going.
