I have a 60 gig bought from hong kong-it plays ps2 but only region 1 ps3?Is that right,should it not play all regions?Cheers


This is correct, the PS3 will only play games and movies from its home region. Note I have some anime that is multi region disks that will not play in my PS3.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

My ps3 is not playing any original dvds code 3 and code 2 what should i do?

PS3's are dvd region specific meaning that if it was made in north america it will only play dvd's in region one. The dvds in these region codes are not compatible with a region 1 device which your ps3 is. 2 Europe (except Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus), Middle East, Egypt, Japan, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, French overseas territories, Greenland 3 Southeast Asia, South Korea, Republic of China (Taiwan), Hong Kong, MacauAlso the reason they have these codes is so that they can limit what goes out to each region, so certain content can be viewable in what is legal in that region. My recommendation is to sadly, repurchase the dvds anywhere in North America and they'll compatible.

Playing uk dvd's on region 3 PS3

No you can't. At this time it's not possible. You could always make the discs you bought region free by copying them with dvdshrink or another program but as of now there is no hack for the PS3 and probably won't be one for another year.

You could try dual booting the ps3 with linux, but it's probably not worth all the effort.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!
