Hi,

Your Japanese PS3 can only play Japanese PS2 games. It's not region free like the PS3 games. Sorry...

I live in South Africa and bought a PS3 Baseball game. It works in my PS2 but not in the PS3, because of the zone code. What is the correct zone code


I assume you bought a PS2 game that works on your PS2 system but not on your PS3 system since a PS3 game will never work on a PS2.

Since not all PS3 systems can play PS2 games, you need to first check the model number of your PS3 system. If you look at the back of your PS3, there should be a serial number somewhere that starts with "CECH", followed by one more letter and a couple numbers (e.g. "CECHC02"). Unless the model number starts with "CECHA", "CECHB", "CECHC", or "CECHE", you won't be able to play PS2 games on your PS3.

If your PS3 can play PS2 games, then you need to make sure that the region of the PS2 game matches the region of your PS3. The region of the PS2 game can be found in the upper-right corner of the front of the box the game came in. The four regions are: "NTSC U/C", "NTSC J", "NTSC C", and "PAL".

Once you know the model number of the PS3 and the region of the PS2 game, you can tell if the PS2 game should work on the PS3. Use the following chart to determine if your game and system are compatible:

Last two digits of your PS3 model number: Playable PS2 game region
00: NTSC J
01: NTSC U/C
02: PAL
03: PAL
04: PAL
05: NTSC J
06: NTSC J
07: NTSC J
08: PAL
09: NTSC C
11: NTSC U/C
12: NTSC J

Japanese game wont play on ps2 slimline!


if its in a region lock, its impossible to be played on a American PS2, if your PS2 is modded it will read any region locked discs, the only possible solution is to buy a Japanese Version PS2

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.

Japanese 60gb ps3


PS2 games and DVD movies are still region encoded. Your Japanese PS3 will not play them.

It will play Blu-ray games from any region or and Region 1 blu-ray movie.

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.

Games not supported


Some games won't be supported since they are region specific. And if it's a PS2 game then it may not have the patch needed to play it. Here in the states about 200 PS1 and PS2 games are not recognized by the PS3. And if it's not an American region game, then we have to have a mod chip for it to work.

Just purchased a TTX Tech wireless PS3 controller that comes with a USB key fob that connects to one of the front USB ports of my PS3 console. I have successfully synced it to my PS3 only issue I'm having is how drastically different the configuration is from the usual sixaxis controllers. I noticed between the 2 controllers there are 2 clear differences amongst them. 1 being the trigger buttons are not the same and that the circular circumference for the analog sticks are alittle bit different in size. Basically comparing the size of a 25cent coin to a 5cent coin. I'm assuming because of the analog having less of a left to right and or a up and down travelling distance due to the difference of having a smaller analog circle that it could very well change the sensitivity aspects in the game of choice (COD Black ops 2) but I mean the difference between the two controllers is beyond noticeable I've experimented with lowering the sensitivity level from what was set when using the sixaxis controller compared to when using the TTX Tech controller. For example using the sixaxis I'm set to 13 for my sensitivity but when switching to the TTX Tech to become even close to having the same feel and view while using it in comparison to the sixaxis i have had to lower my sensitivity level to an 11 or a 10 instead of the 13 and yet it still is quite noticeably different from my sixaxis controller. Also I've found that the right analog for the TTX Tech is extremely sensitive gently applying upward downward and also side to side pressure on the analog causes a significantly noticeable jump or jolt that seems to never differ in speed regardless as to what has been set for the sensitivity level in game settings. In a nut shell basically I'm asking if anyone else has noticed these things I'm experiencing and if there may be a configuration manual or program that could some how configure the TTX Tech controller to act more as if it were a sixaxis controller in the aspects of the analog sensitivities and responding timing. Yes of course a new controller with a different shape and or feel will make for a "getting used to it" experience which does generally occur after a time period of using said controller more and more often. I am more or less meaning whether or not the smoothness and or the rythem you would have with one controller be more similar with one another. If anyone is a gamer and has gone from using a normal typical original PS3 controller and unfortunately having it be no longer able to be used to play games and switching to the TTX Tech controller immediately afterwards I'm sure will know exactly what I am trying to explain. Appreciate any insight and or knowledge towards my inquiry. Thank you kindly for the assistance and of course take it easy or take it any way you can get it :)
