Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
Unfortunately, the problem that you're encountering is most likely the difference in broadcasting standards between Europe and North America/Japan. North American and Japanese PS3's and games are made to be NTSC-format complaint, as that is the broadcasting standard used in those areas. In Europe however, the PAL format is used instead, so PS3's and games sold there are generally PAL-compliant. In order for a game to function correctly on any console, it should be in the same format as the console itself.
Please keep in mind that while PS3 games may be “region-free,” Sony does not currently provide official support for NTSC/PAL conversion on PS3 consoles.
Hope this helps you out.
