    Generally, nope. What platform are we talking about? Most platforms have protection to prevent you from running European games, and additionally, you have the wrinkle of PAL games running in a different videoformat that most US TVs can't handle without an additional convertor.

    The XBox can handle converting PAL playback for a NTSC TV, but unfortunately the XBox is region protected to not let you play UK games on it.

    What's the game, if you don't mind me asking?
