Bypass region lock on ps2

Is it true that there is some sort of software that can let you bypass the region lock on the ps2? If so what kind of software would it be, and where could I get it? Or if not is there any way to bypass the region lock, because I have a US ps2 and ps3 and wanted to play some japanese games.

    Ya I heard that too, iI aslo read in some other forums/threads, is that there's a disc called Swap Magic, but I don't know what is better, a modchip or swap magic?

  • mlcn2012 May 07, 2008

    I just bought Swap Magic for the Playstation 2. The tool that came with the discs to slde the disc tray out doesn't seem to work. The Drive Door gets in the way. I've seen a video on the net about how to work the swap tool, and the console that they used had no drive door. Can someone tell me if I need to take the door off, and how to do it without taking my PS2 apart?

SEE IF THIS HELPFUL , what I heard about is that you need to change a chip inside the PLAYSTATION that will allow you to play these games . AJ

I have a PS2 Slim and it won't read discs. Every time I put a disc in it won't spin it will just go to the screen that says browser and system configuration. Please help me!!


Causes:

1. DVD has lots of scratches
2. Regional Settings
3. Incorrect DVD settings for PS2
4. No/Incorrect Disc

Remedy:

1. Clean your discs well and avoid incurring scratches. Place it in
its box after use.
2. DVDs have encoding. They are encoded by regions. Thus, you cannot
play region 2 DVDs on a US Playstation mainly because the US
Playstation 2 can only read DVD that are encoded in Region 1 or
those DVDs that are encoded for all regions. Again, US PS2 are
region 1 capable. Japanese PS2s are Region 2 Capable.
3. There are a number of settings for the DVD playback of your
PS2. First is the rating of the DVD. If you want to watch a
rated R movie, make sure your PS2 allows viewing of R movies.
You'll be setting this during the first time that you'll be
watching a DVD. It's just the same as real theaters. It is also
protected with password so you need the person who set it up
the first time in order to bypass the rating settings.
4. Put in a DVD first and make sure that it is a Movie. And,
check #2.

Ps2 action replay wont work on 60gb ps3


The Playstation (R) 3 has most likely been patched. I find it knocks back not only Action Replay but XPLODER also (The EU version of Gameshark) both for PS2 it is likely that SONY has blocked it out to stop consumers playing region locked dvd movies. So if you in UK you can only play Region 2 PAL dvd's, if you in the us, you can only play Region 1 NTSC dvds. If in AUS, you can only play Region 4 Dvd Disc....etc.... AR Max had a feature to bypass this problem, thus why sony has probably patched against it. As for a solution I am also searching for one, truth be told, I don't think there is one.

You should boot up your codes on your PS2, then the game.
Save your game.
Then copy your save game to your PS3.

Hope this helps.
