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?

Not allowed access to in game playstation store to purchase bonus packs


Most likely because the servers are down. A game like this, that game out 3 years ago, wouldn't have the store or multiplayer servers still running. You can try searching for DLC directly through PS store, but as far as through the in game menu, it's not going to happen.

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

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 :

Netgear won`t connect to ps3


He needs to go to a local best buy radio shack, office depot type store and get a cat-5 ethernet cable from his ps3 to his router, this will solve all his problems since wireless gaming always has drop spots that can get worse depending on the router type. Also if their are other computers make sure there not downloading or eating up bandwidth, this will not allow it to connet. Make sure the router settings allow the ps3 to connect, does the ps3 see the router but wont connect? you need the wep key.

I want to download pokemon games


if you guys are talking about a pc-gameboy emulator then yes Visual Boy Advance is your solution. it allows you to play gameboy games right on your computer and ther are many cracked games to make gameplay a lot easier http://vba.ngemu.com/ but, if you would like cracked games for your gameboy i am sure it is possible but you run a prety good risk of downloading viruses and such off of torrent websites. i would suggest actually buying those games. GL tell me how this works for you

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
