PEGI Xbox 360 game... in NTSC??
« on: March 29, 2019, 06:48:31 pm »
I just made the weirdest video game find of my life. I just bought this copy of Fallout 3 - Game Of The Year Edition for Xbox 360 and it's a NTSC version... but with PEGI ratings!

*surprised pikachu*

I've never seen anything like this before. Have you guys ever seen a NTSC game with PEGI ratings before?

Well your manual has an ESRB rating on it, so it's a piecemeal set of some kind... although I can't really offer much explanation for the case art. My first thought would be to pull it out & see if its a homemade insert.

These were often sold in Quebec for the French-speaking market located there.

The carton looks 100% genuine, even the discs are entirely in French.

For PC games, yes. But during the last 3-years of video game collecting I have never ever ever seen a CONSOLE game from here with PEGI ratings. This is absolutely unheard of for console games.

If this is one of the examples of a France game brought to Canada, and if it is localised into French, it would likely not get re-rated by ESRB. So the PEGI rating would be used instead.
