Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Regional Restriction I'm in the States. For ChristmasI got Gaelic games (Football and Hurling) for my playstation 3. They are playstation 2 games and (now) obviously only intended for irish customers. They are region restricted. Am I out of luck. I don't think there is anyway to get a US version of gaelic games. Help!

Re: Regional Restriction

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

Baught my PS3 in the sates dont wanna play south african dvds and games

Please go through the booklet provided with your PS3. It will show you what type of DVDs it can play. Make sure that the South African DVDs you are playing are compatible with the one listed in the booklet. Best is to play Blue ray DVD which are slightly expansive but are regional code free. They can be played on PS3 without any hitch.
