No way to do this reasonably. It is in the Coding of the Motherboard. You will need a different motherboard. Now, you have an intersting situation. Your Japanese Version PS3 is Valuable. You can advertise it on ebay and get more for it. Then turn around and buy yourself a NTSC-U/C version. I know it takes time, but that is your best option.

Can i use PS3 europe in the philippine, that have different region and system


Yes, the PS3's region doesn't matter since PS3 games and Blu-Ray movies are REGION-FREE meaning they can be played on any system from any country. I, for one, am a PS3 owner from the Philippines. My system is from Japan but I have and can play games from US, Europe, and Asia. You can even run imported games such as Japan exclusive games and play them with no problem.

My PS3 plays some movies but some say my region code is not correct so I was wondering how to fix it.


Your region code is based off of where you got your PS3, the regions are US(NTSC), Japan(NTSC-J), and Europe(PAL). The only way to fix this is to reburn your DvD's after converting them with dvdShrink

PS3 region 1 (usa) can you change this console to play region 2 games


Not legally... the region codes are there to regulate where you buy your games (so that you don't buy the game in Japan and play it in the U.S. or Canada before everybody else). It also forces you to re-buy games you bought in other countries.

My Sony Blu ray can't play normal DVDs in my region - Africa. How do I change the region coding just for DVDs?


It's not possible to change the region code in the Blu-ray Player.

BD media does have region codes. But, unlike current DVD players, the region codes for BD media use letters instead of numbers to indicate a particular zone or region where the discs can be played.

The BD region codes are as follows:
Region A: North America, South America, U.S. Territories, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia

Region B: Europe, Africa, Middle East, Australia, and New Zealand.

Region C: Asia (except for Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and other areas of Southeast Asia)

PS3 80gb from Singapore will not play ps2 games Wrong region displayed


I,m pretty sure that the region settings on PS3s are factory set.
Your only option is to buy japanese games, or NTSJ.
I,d try to re-sell it back to someone in Singapore or Japan, and buy a UK Version.

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.
