    I bought my PS3 console in Singapore along with a few games. I am based in India. Can I buy games being sold in India or elsewhere in the world, and use it in my console? Is the PS3 Console Region-free for Games? Any other solution? Thanks.

    So, can anybody answer the initial question about how to find the region setting for PS3? I'm having problems playing Region-Free DVD's and wondered if the PS3 requires that the DVD movies require an explicit region coding? TIA.

Yes you can.. Blu-ray discs are not region coded.. However if you trying to play a DVD or any other format disc then it would not be possible since these are region coded.. However the PS3 games are region free.. can be bought from anywhere and played anywhere..

Hope this helps!!

Most movies are regional coded even blu-ray. The USA code is 1 for dvds and A for Blu-ray. ConsoleSource.com makes mod chips and software for the many game console systems to bypass the regional codes. I have several systems which play multi regional becuase of them or other venders I have found.

Most of the Blu-Ray movies in Australia are region free, just look at the back of the cover.

When i try to play a dvd on my ps3 its telling me region code not found


hi there,
the ps3 will only play dvd's from your region(e.g. region 1 usa, 2 europe etc..) So depending on where you got your dvd, if it's not the region as your ps3, the ps3 will not play the dvd. however the ps3 will play blu-rays and games from anywhere in the world as it plays region-free blu-ray discs. I know it's a pain in the neck, but you will have to find a region free dvd player to play that dvd. Hope this helps.

Will not play dvd's...it says the region code is not correct!! but games are fine


This is not a problem with your PS3. DVD's come with a region code lock that won't allow the disc to be played if it's in the wrong region. This is a common occurrence when movies are bought off the internet from different countries. There is nothing you can do about it that I know of, save for returning the discs for a different region code. Thanks.

I want to play the dvds of animation like kungfu panda & madgascar etc.but the message that my ps3 displays is that region code does not match.I bought the ps3 and dvds in Delhi India & my location...


The DVD movie you are trying to play does not match the region code of your player which is your PS3. These movie discs might not be under the same region and you have to comly to the DVD region code settings to make it work. If it says region code does not match, it means that it is unsupported and not compatible with your PS3.

How can i unlock region coding


You cannot unlock the Blu-Ray region of the PS3. You should try and get Blu-Ray discs that are not region locked in the future.
