You can still play games that you've downloaded, but not any games that require use of the drive.

Why won't my console play blu-ray movies


The Wii doesnt play Blue-Ray "BD" Movies, only the PS3 does, also the Wii doesn't play DVD's.
You can get the Wii to play DVD's by cracking the system by placing files on a SD Card, but your Wii will never play Blue-Ray movie because the system doesn't have the blue laser in the cd drive, sorry.

Have a nice day

Ps3 blue ray will not play. how do i correct this?


first, try to play other blue ray discs. if the other discs work then its just the disk. if its still doesn't work then it should be something internal and you will need to call sony about that.

Won't load blue ray game


The blue-ray inside your ps3 could be dead. I suggest try playing a DVD-Movie. If this doesn't work than it is dead. To replace it you would either need to call Sony or open the ps3 (This will void your warranty), locate the blue-ray, and find out the model and look in ebay to replace it.

Tried to get internet


hi...please verify:
  • your dvd disc region (must be region free or 1 - for USA)
  • playing blue-ray MOVIES disc, to check a possible problem with your reader .
if the blue ray movie doesn't work, you have got a possible problem with your blue ray dvd reader .
then, take it to an assistance center for hardware repair ..

Why does the ps3 box say you cannot play ps2 games


the reason why ps2 games won't work is bacause the lasers are different. the ps3 has a blue-ray laser while the ps2 hasn an infrared laser.
i don't want to get too technical, but basically the wavelenghts of the lasers are different, the blue-ray has a shorter wavelenght than the other, so it can't play the ps2 games and the ps3 games use a different type of disk.
