There haven't been any region-specific PS3 games released yet, but you may have problems if playing out-of-region games on an SD (i.e. non hi-def) telly. This is fairly well documented. Stroller.

Some games won't be supported since they are region specific. And if it's a PS2 game then it may not have the patch needed to play it. Here in the states about 200 PS1 and PS2 games are not recognized by the PS3. And if it's not an American region game, then we have to have a mod chip for it to work.

How to play xbox games on a new xbox360 slim 4gb


I am assuming you are referring to playing original Xbox games on your new 360. Halo was the only game from the box that you can play directly without needing to download the patch to play but supposed newer systems have the capability to play more directly out of the box.

Other backwards compatable games can be played but you will need a samll patch for each game. The game if playable will automatically attepmt to download the patch from xbox live. So you will need to have your Xbox 360 conected to live or have a patch disk. (which is available via the Xbox Magazine disk or can be downloaded online and burned to a disk)

Here is a link for Xbox games that are playable on the 360: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360

"You can play some original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console, if you have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive and the latest console software.

Information about how to update your console software is available on our Xbox support website:
support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-360/how-to/update-xbox-360/system-updates.aspx "

May I download games I have purchased from CD.. So that I can play without using the disc. Howdychar@aol.com


i am assuming you are talking about computer games. there are programs called cracks that you can download that allow you to play an installed game without the disc, but these are illegal so i cant tell you where to find them. *cough gamecopyworld cough* to install said cracks, or no-cd fixes as they are also known. you must 1) have the game installed on your hard drive 2)have the most recent version patch (most games automatically update) 3) download the crack 4) go to the folder where your installed games files are and replace the exe. file with the one you get from the crack download. i would suggest making another copy of the installed file first just in case.
hope this helps.

We bought three Playstation 2 games in the US, and now find we are unable to play them in Australia due to the region code. Is there any way to fix this?


By getting the console modded to play any region games. May also be a compatibility issue with games I assume Aussie TVs are PAL like NZ. USA games may run in NSTC. Some TVs can allow this but don't know if it effects the console though

Japanese Ps3 not playing American games


It's because your trying to play american games on a japanese system. See the japanese system is different because of not only how much Power it needs to function (I'd be wary about that btw) as well that a Japanese PS3 can only play Japanese PS3 games. American games wont work for it.

MY japoneese ps3


The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.
