Viva Piñata is region-free

(And filled with fun.)

"It's horse party time!" is the cry that's going out as we discover that our US copy of Viva Piñata works fine on a PAL Xbox 360. We thought you'd want to know.

That puts it in good company of course, with Gears of War having been confirmed as region-free last week too. Except in Viva's case, the wait for the PAL version would otherwise be longer - now you can nab it from the US without having to hang around until 1st December.

Anyway, time to go and make some gardens! Look out for our review soon. [And yes, we think his behaviour's been a bit sinister lately, too - Ed]
