Question about Nintendo DS Lite - Onyx

1 Answer

I have this game which is imported from japan. I just read that it us region locked, so it cant be played on the european or us dsi. I have searched on the internet to see if there is a solution. Alot of people said that It wont work on the dsi, But the Ds and Ds lite will not have this problem (it can play imported stuff). Is this true? Thank you!

From Wiki:

"The immediate successor to the Nintendo DS, the Nintendo DSi, is region-locked, but only in terms of its downloadable games. Physical DS game carts will play on it regardless of region of origin (DSi-only and even DSi-enhanced games are region-locked though)."

Can i use PS3 europe in the philippine, that have different region and system


Yes, the PS3's region doesn't matter since PS3 games and Blu-Ray movies are REGION-FREE meaning they can be played on any system from any country. I, for one, am a PS3 owner from the Philippines. My system is from Japan but I have and can play games from US, Europe, and Asia. You can even run imported games such as Japan exclusive games and play them with no problem.

How to play incorrect region games?


you cant make the xbox multiregion. The only way to play other region discs is to flash the firmware of the dvd drive and then the xbox gets instantly banned, plus you will only be allowed to play that regions games. So if you flashed a european xbox with say japanese then you could only play japanese games not european. If you jtagged the xbox then you can play any region no problems, but again it would get banned , only older xboxes can be jtagged and they are hard to find and not cheap to buy

Best bet is to buy an original xbox for whatever region to play the games

Some ds games do not work on my ds but will work on my sisters and there are other games that will work on my ds. Is the problem with the ds or the game


it might be because you have a DSi, and your sister has a DS or DS lite

if so you cannot play some games because DSi are region locked, basically an US DSi can only play US games, a japanese DSi can only play japanese games etc etc,

DS and DS lite are not region locked and can play any game

Is there already a english converter for japanese dsi?


The DSi has not been hacked as of yet, so currently changing the region is not possible. However, if you can guess your way through the settings (I can't help here as my DSi was stolen) then I think you can change the language. Other than that you can't do much else.

MY japoneese ps3


The pal ps2 games and dvds will not play on a Japanese ps3 due to region coding. You can play all ps3 games and blu ray films because they do not use region coding. Some games will also play differently on a ps3, for example, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (I highly recommend the game) will not have any blood on a Japanese ps3. The region coding feature can not be changed/modified. I would recommend returning Japanese ps3 and purchasing a European model instead if that is possible. Bon chance.

Playing a european PAL game on a canadian NTSC console


Go to a search engine like www.metacrawler.com and search for "Swap Magic".  The Emotion Engine processor that is reading the data from the game is told not to read certain Discs if the region code does not match the conoles country code. It mayl save a game to the memory card but not play the game or run the movie.
