    Im off to the States on Thursday and I have already learnt from this site today that I cant buy games there for use here but doest that rule apply to accessories?

    My 3 year old son has hidden one of the remotes and we know not where so if I buy one in the States will it be ok in the UK?

    Appreciate an answer.

    Many thanks.

    Excellent,I read on here that the games cant be used in the UK though,is that right??

    Be great if they did as im guessing they are a little cheaper.

    Great information though.

    Only the software, in other words, the games, are region locked, so you should be just fine if you purchase any accessories.
