If its in a region lock, its impossible to be played on a American PS2, if your PS2 is modded it will read any region locked discs, the only possible solution is to buy a Japanese Version PS2

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

Unlock uk ps3 region coding please


you can't unlock the region coding in your ps3.

All the PS3 games are region free. That means it dosent matter where you bought the console, or where you buy your games, they will all be compatible.

There are a few things to be aware of though.

First the games still exist in PAL, or NTSC versions. That means if your are using and older TV witch does not have HDMI support, some games will not work correct, you may experience off colors, or black white screen or other odd things. If you use a new TV with HDMI there is nothing to worry about. since using HDMI signals there is no suchs things as PAL, or NTSC. (this i got while surfing the net...don't know if its true)

if you import a game from another region. You must also buy DLC from that region. meaning if you bought a japanese game you'll have to buy a japanese dlc. if you buy an american dlc or any other dlc it won't work. so buying other region games almost guarantees that you won't be playing any dlc for that game unless you know how to set up psn account in those regions. that part is easy but setting up an account so that you can buy is not since it'll ask for credit card info and it has to match with your billing address....i.e. you are setting up a japanese account but using a uk address for credit card billing... wont work

Third. Some games have region locked online play. witch means if you import a US game, you will only be able to play online with other people who have the US version.

finally The bluray movies are still region locked. you will be able to find some that are not. so unless you find those that are not region locked you will not be able to watch US movies on your UK PS3. of course this goes for dvd too since they are all region coded

Japanese version to english


No, the Wii is region locked. Unless you get a mod chip to play out of region games. But I don't think there is a way to change the menu language.

Hi,

Your Japanese PS3 can only play Japanese PS2 games. It's not region free like the PS3 games. Sorry...

Japanese 60gb ps3


PS2 games and DVD movies are still region encoded. Your Japanese PS3 will not play them.

It will play Blu-ray games from any region or and Region 1 blu-ray movie.

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.
