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 just purchased a 360 elite while in the UK now I cant play us games or movies. What can be done?


Nothing, sorry. You're dealing with two incomaptible video formats and regions (US - NTSC, Region 1, UK - PAL, Region 2). I'm assuming that the 360 is like the PS3 in that you have the option for either PAL or NTSC output in the settings but you can't change what the console reads. I'm very sorry.

Which uk ps3 games are region free to play in usa system


Hi,

I believe all PS3 games are region free.
The region coding would be applicable for the blu-ray side of things, but the games should work on all consoles, providing they are original/official games.
After Reading various Forums on this Topic, it appears That All games from all regions Will Work On any PS3. ( this does not include PS1-PS2 Games )
I gues the only way to find out, is to try 1.

Playing uk dvd's on region 3 PS3


No you can't. At this time it's not possible. You could always make the discs you bought region free by copying them with dvdshrink or another program but as of now there is no hack for the PS3 and probably won't be one for another year.

You could try dual booting the ps3 with linux, but it's probably not worth all the effort.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Best of luck!

UK PS3 Compatability in Australia


Most (I say about 90%) of Bluray games are region free. Which means they will play on any PS3. However, sometimes updates or extra content, can cause problems. Because you have to get the updates from the region in which the game is from.

As for Blurays, some are region free and some aren't Hollywood is a lot more picky about copyright. I have heard that most are region free, and have also heard that they are the same as DVD. So don't have a direct answer for you regards to Bluray.
