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!

    Thanks PJ. I just found these games online and had to get them. I'm from the states originally and since they were only available in ps2 format i figured no problem. is this mod chip something that is done often?

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
