Title: Original Xbox Ntsc On Xbox360 Pal?
Post by: Jayzee on January 17, 2012, 11:55:46 AM


I'm trying to get a few classic original Xbox1 games running on my system, but every time I try to load a game I get the dreaded X: 2689.0 B : 1884.0 error. To answer a few question in advance:While being connected to LIVE I'm trying to start my xbox1 games hoping that emulation profile should automatically be downloaded, but that never happens. I just get the original Xbox logo and message "This original Xbox game is not supported on your Xbox 360 console. An update to support this game may be available. For more info, go to X: 2689.0 B: 1884.0".

What I could find out only NTSC xbox1 games are supported. (Source: (

Question is: Will I be able to run NTSC versions of my games on my PAL console? Few games to mention are Conker: Live and Reloaded, Psychonauts, Simpsons: Hit and Run, Futurama ...

No idea, But given that its emulating functionality and the emulator should not be hardware restricted to pal, also that the 360 is fully capable of HD at 60hz then i dont see why it cant run ntsc xbox 1 games.
Never tried it my self. But like i said The hardware is capable of displaying the out put and the game is being emulated. so i dont see why not. unless they restricted the emulator to the format of whichever country the 360 is from but that dosent seem likley anymore with hd tv's being NTSC compatable.

The region protection exists for all original xbox games so the statement about NTSC region games being the only region supported is false.  I can attest to this for the fact that I purchase, and own original japanese xbox games, which are NTSC-J.  These wont work on my american console, which to be technical about the region compatibility is it's NTSC-U/C region (United States and Canada).  You're getting the error because you're games are out of region, and your console is looking for the PAL designation your copies would have imprinted on them.  Yes the game may be supported, but you need the proper region release of a particular B/C title.  Very few ways around that if you're playing actual disc copies.
