CDs in South Africa
« on: August 28, 2013, 08:05:45 AM »

Good day all.  I am at present staying with my son in Belgium, and want to purchase a PC Sim magazine which has a CD on Flight Simulator X add-ons on it.  My question is whether the CD will work in South Africa.  As it is probably a general thing, perhaps somebody will know the answer.  Can anybody advise me?  Cheers. Brian

Sega and the Xbox used to region lock their games, but other than that no games CD's are not region locked only DVD's and it is easy and to get around that.
