    I have tried the European physical copies of xbox one games such as rugby 15 on NTSC xbox one and it was stackable but never tried the PAL or JP ver of 360 games (physical copy -compatible) on xbox one. my question is if I buy a physical copy of JP ver of Mafia II, can I play it on NTSC xbox one and get new achievements ?

    How I understand it: as long as it's not a Chinese Xbone, it's region free. And all backwards compatible games are therefore region free as well.

    I don't remember if it was the Japanese Oblivion and/or Dragon Age: Origins. But I remember reading that one or both games had troubles at first but they were eventually ironed out. You can just go to the forums posts for either games to read up on that.

    I'm missing the War Hero Pack and the Made Man Pack in my ready to install list. I'm 100% sure I've bought them years ago. Other packs I've bought are showing up. Who do I contact for this? MS or 2K?
