PS3 question - 09-24-2007, 03:01 AM

Will a imported Japanese game work on the American PS3?
Cause I'm importing the International versions of FFX, FFX-2, and FFXII...
And if it won't, how would I go about making it do so?

I know that the Blu-Ray Regions for America and japan are the same, so in theory, wouldn't they have shipped the same version of the console to America and Japan, so wouldn't the system have to be compatable with both region 1 and region 2 PS2 games?

None of the Playstation systems are compatable with different country-code games.

You must mod your PS3 to make it compatible... which isn't something I would recommend. The best way to play Japanese games in the US is to buy a Japanese PS3.

Well, that's not entirely true, the Blu-Ray regions for Japan and America are the same, look it up...
That's why I'm not bitching that Advent Children Complete is only planned for a Japanese release, because it's been confirmed that it will have an English audio option, so I can just have it imported because America and Japan have the same region when it comes to to Blu-Ray....

I am finding that "in theory" the PS3 should be region-free in gaming, but this is all 2005 speculation...

Hmmm...

This article says that it is region-free.

Never heard that before. That's some good news...

no, Tekken has not come out in Japan... anyways, if it came out in Japan it would be out here cause they can release the same version in both countries.
It's region free when it comes to blu-ray media, I'm just not sure about PS2 media..
