No you cannot.. The ps3 is the only system so far that plays any region game...You would need to buy a mod chip online and install it.. or check out some software that will let you do so..
The chip can be soft or hard
Soft meaning attatches on
Hard means you need to solder it on.
Hope this helps..
PS: just type in ps2 mod chip and any of the stores will have a list of chips!

I bought a ps2 game on ebay and it wont work, the seller is from japan, how can i tell if my game can only be played on japan ps2


The disc only works within certain regions. There is no specific way that you can tell unless the language on the disc is in Japanese. Otherwise you will have to resell it or get a Japanese PS2

Can you play PS2 games on a PS3?


If you bought the original PS3 when it first came out and purchased the expensive one with the larger hard drive, it will be able to play *some* PS2 games. If you bought the cheaper one with the smaller hard drive or purchased your PS3 once the prices started dropping, it will have no capabilities of playing PS2 games, as Sony has decided to not continue making the system semi-backwards-compatible.

My ps2 will not play france games


The systems have region codes, since it was purchased in France you need your code to only run France games, its the same thing if you purchase a movie over there or from other countries they have there own region code.

Hey buddy FORMAT DISC means PAL games or NTSC games format.

There are 2 formats dics in this world for the PS1,PS2,PSP,Wii,Gamecube.etc

They are [NTSC] and [PAL]

[NTSC] is for North America and Japan ONLY. [NTSC] is Original games.

[PAL] is for Asia Only. Which is copied games form the Originals.

I need to know were did you bought PS2 Console from ?

If you bought it in North America or Japan then you have to buy and play Original games from North America Only.

If you bought your PS2 in Asia then you can play copied games.

It is most likely your PS2 is a NTSC, your PS2 cant read any PAL games so it will say format dics.

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.

If your playstation is chipped (modified) for playing fake (copy) games then only it is possible to play US games on japanese console suuppose if it is not chipped you can't play US games on it and you have to play only japanese games and that also originals.
