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

How do you play ps2 games on a ps3


kevin123422

To be able to play PS2 games on your PS3 you have to have a system that supports this option. Not all PS3s will play PS2 games.

Let me know the model of you PS3 and I can tell you if your system support playing PS2 games. If it does then they would load link normal games. If not then you have a problem with the system.

My ps3 wont play ps3 games but it will play movies and ps2 games


If the movies are DVD (like ps2 games) It could be that the laser for your PS3 has issues-
Try using a lint-free lens cloth to clean the laser lens- if that does not work, you may need to contact Sony for an RMA to get your PS3 repaired

Will not play dvd's or ps2 games


Ps2 Games are not for the ps3.but the older ps3's will play them. With D.V.D.s this maybe a dust issues or the brand of dvd that your burning to. PS3 has less Ram then the Xbox360 but the PS3 has faster Ram. PC Are The Way to go cheap, fast and easy to fix.

My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games


You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

Ps3 supports over 1000 ps1 and ps2 titles. Make sure you hook your ps3 up to the internet and download the latest firmware updates. Odds are your system will be able to play all or most of your ps2 games once you update the ps3 online.
