Simple answer, you cant. Custom firmware has never been made available for the PS3 and it probably never will be. Besides that telling you how to do it if it were possible would be encouraging piracy :(

Unlock uk ps3 region coding please


you can't unlock the region coding in your ps3.

All the PS3 games are region free. That means it dosent matter where you bought the console, or where you buy your games, they will all be compatible.

There are a few things to be aware of though.

First the games still exist in PAL, or NTSC versions. That means if your are using and older TV witch does not have HDMI support, some games will not work correct, you may experience off colors, or black white screen or other odd things. If you use a new TV with HDMI there is nothing to worry about. since using HDMI signals there is no suchs things as PAL, or NTSC. (this i got while surfing the net...don't know if its true)

if you import a game from another region. You must also buy DLC from that region. meaning if you bought a japanese game you'll have to buy a japanese dlc. if you buy an american dlc or any other dlc it won't work. so buying other region games almost guarantees that you won't be playing any dlc for that game unless you know how to set up psn account in those regions. that part is easy but setting up an account so that you can buy is not since it'll ask for credit card info and it has to match with your billing address....i.e. you are setting up a japanese account but using a uk address for credit card billing... wont work

Third. Some games have region locked online play. witch means if you import a US game, you will only be able to play online with other people who have the US version.

finally The bluray movies are still region locked. you will be able to find some that are not. so unless you find those that are not region locked you will not be able to watch US movies on your UK PS3. of course this goes for dvd too since they are all region coded

Ps3 games dont play but films do please help :(


This is an interesting problem, usually games play but bluray movies don't (if thats what your playing film wise)

most common issue is to need to replace your Bluray optical drive or lens or board. Just depends on how much you want to take it apart and discect it. I for one would rather buy the new optical drive, install it and get back to playing!! Most drives run about $80 online. But if your Ps3 is under warranty seriously go to Sony and talk to them. Otherwise I can replace it for you.

PS3 will play games but not movies


Well if the regular dvd's dont work.. I would recommend you to buy Blu-Ray movies instead.. PS3 is the best known blu-ray player. buy at least one blu-ray movie and try that.

PS2 OR PS3


Um well it all depends on what you want!
I would say the ps3 is the best... only bc there is no internet charge added on and you dont need to buy a controller charger as well as the built in blu ray player and huge hd ...
360 you have to pay for internet, charger for the wireless controllers, buy a hd drive ect unless you get the elite..
I have both and have added linux to my ps3 which runs like a computer...
ALSO you can play ps 1/2/3 games on a ps3 if you buy a 60gb version.
In my personal choice id stick with ps3..
