How I Bought Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, the Asian version for the XBOX 360

Continued from Part 1:
How I Found Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, the Asian version for the XBOX 360

After I found Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box at Data Blitz at Park Square, I decided to buy it.  I waited a few days before I went back to Data Blitz the day before the start of the Holy Week break. I looked for the game and it was still there on the shelf. I brought it to the cash register to buy the game. I asked one last time just to make sure, if the game could play on a U.S. XBOX 360 console. This time the cashier checked and replied that she couldn't say for sure.

That stopped me cold. I asked her to verify that again so she checked and she said again that she really couldn't say for a fact that the game could play on a U.S. XBOX 360 console. My head was spinning. I was told that the game could play on a U.S. console and now they weren't so sure. Now I had my doubts whether the game was indeed region free.

How I Found Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, the Asian version for the XBOX 360

I had been looking to buy online, the Asian version of Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, but I was somewhat hesitant due to the combination of the prices and because I didn't know if it would play on my U.S. XBOX 360. I couldn't take the risk because I couldn't afford it.

Through a series of fortunate decisions and occurences, I was able to find the game locally and at a cheaper price. Even though I still wasn't 100% sure that the game could play on my XBOX 360, I put my faith on the information shown on Ebay and other online stores, took the risk, and bought the game.
