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 60gb ps3 that i got from singapore and when i try to play the red dead redemption game i got from ausralia on a standard panasonic tv, it says it cannot play due to the current video ouput setting...


it sounds like a version conflict to me ie a NTSC copy of the game with a pal PS3 or visa versa.
an excerpt from wikipedia
"Two of the seventh generation of video game consoles have regional lockout, so games imported from other countries cannot be played on foreign versions of those consoles without some form of alteration to bypass the lockout. However, a number of games for the Xbox 360 have been confirmed as region free and will play on a unit from any region, although it is up to the publisher if a game is region free or not. Like the CD-i and the Panasonic 3DO, the PlayStation 3 is one of the few home consoles to be advertised as region-free.[2][3] However, while region free for PS3 games, there is region locking for backwards compatible PS2 and PS1 games, as well as DVD and Blu-ray Disc movies. Additionally, some games separate online players per region, such as Metal Gear Solid 4 Online. A PSN store only contains content for its own country, for example the UK store will not supply usable map packs for an imported US copy of Call of Duty 4. The PS3 actually supports hardware region locking for PS3 games as well, based on Blu-ray regions,[4] but as of current it is unused and all current region lockouts and separations are about online services."

Perhaps checking the video setting and game settings under "settings" in the home menu might help.

I bought my grandson a used ps2 for xmas and it has a stored parental lock 4 diget code and he can't play anything except g movies. we tried the 7444 and it didn't work. can yo help me with this problem?


You must push select before entering 7444, this will change the text to Delete Password from Enter Password. Afterwards it will say password deleted, register password. If this now works you can change the level. I have come across this problem and was able to get 0000 to work although it was not the password. There is software you can use to bypass this as well.

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.

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.
