Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

The playstation is not allowing my son to play his games.

We took it to a local gameboy store and the guy connected it, and it would not allow him access to the game either. He tried several games. What can we do? The guy says that the console is dead. This game is not even a year old, what can we do?

How do you connect the wii to a dsi


Can You Use Nintendo DS With Wii?


The portable Nintendo systems, Nintendo DS, DS Lite, and DSi, are connectible with the Nintendo Wii system, much like the compatibility between Nintendo's Gameboy Advance and Gamecube video game systems.

  1. Purpose
    • Connecting the Nintendo DS, DS Lite, or DSi to the Nintendo Wii allows owners of these systems to use them to their maximum potential, as they take advantage of the Nintendo Wi-Fi connectivity. This allows you to use the systems simultaneously with certain Nintendo DS games.
    Connecting
    • To connect the Nintendo DS, DS Lite or DSi to the Nintendo Wii, the Wii needs to be connected to the Internet wirelessly either through a router or by the Wii LAN adapter. These Nintendo systems share a Wi-Fi connection, and this allows the portable Nintendo systems to connect instantly to the Wii via the wireless signal shared by the Wii and the Internet.
    Function
    • Once you have your portable Nintendo system and Nintendo Wii connected, the DS will act as a controller and allow you to play the DS game through the Wii system while maintaining the touchscreen and microphone capabilities of the portable system. Another function of the connection is that the Wii is able to expand the portable Nintendo system's games.
    Games
    • There are only a handful of portable Nintendo games that allow you to connect to the Wii, including the Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl games, which allow players to use Pokemon accumulated via these DS titles to battle with in the Wii's Pokemon Battle Revolution game.
    Future
    • Nintendo has commented that there are plans of being able to download and play game demos to the portable Nintendo systems through the Wii's Nintendo Channel.

Cant play blue ray movie. wants to system update. how does this work


Hello,

There are some firmwares that support playing movies on the game, if the files are not complete, then the ps3 will not be able to play any movie, and some times it might affect game discs as well.

So when next your playstation 3 wants to system update, allow it, so it will automatically restore the files that are necessary to play a blue ray disc.

Systems update is done online, so you must have an internet connection either wireless or by connection for the playstation, and if it pops up the system update message next time, allow it. It will install new firmwares for the playstation 3 and you will be able to enjoy better services on the game.

Take care and good luck
Hope this was helpful

I got the 250g PS3 for my son for Christmas. Works great with Games, DVDs, etc. But, it will not play a Blue-Ray Disc. It keeps going back to (no source) after I insert it everytime! I am running an HDMI...


Well the most typical problem for something like this is that the Blu-ray software is either disabled on the Playstation console OR you need to update your Blu-ray software by allowing the Playstation to connect to an internet source

This will show you some general set-up settings to use :

This link literally in the first 30 seconds shows you how to allow your PS3 system to update the blu-ray player itself :

My son purchased a Playstation 2 game that's in Japanese. Do they make a format disk, so that my son can play the game on a U.S. Playstation 2 ?


you can either go to your local game store and ask if they have a copy or there some programs that create backup files of the game and than you can burn them on to a normal DVD of CD-Rom and play it on your playstation 2.

Regional Restriction


Hi,
Hows it going?
you say you got them for your ps 3, so you must be relying on backwards compatibility to play your playstation 2 games from ireland on your playstation 3, so you must need a chip for your playstation 3 to allow pal european games to be played, sounds tricky and really crappy to be honest, stupididy on Sony's part, I can't understand why they do that. I hope you can get it sorted. A mod chip should do it. I'd recommend going into your local specialist game store(not HMV or Virgin, go to a shop that only does games) and asking the geekiest guy you see behind the counter, because thats the only way i'd find out. Google hasn't been helping me.

I suppose there would have to be a way.

I'm in Ireland myself and came across your post when searching for when they will be releasing the two games for PS3.

Best of Luck
