USA games on UK PS3

19 Replies 486 Views Created 28-12-2011


Hi, I have a UK PS3 and am currently on holiday in the USA. If I was to buy Battlefield 3 from BestBuy in the USA, will it work fully in the UK, including the online services.

 


Thanks

This post features a suggestion and opinion.

 

If I were you, I wouldn't buy it, cos' you won't be able to get all the content in the box that specifies the pricing logic and any extra stuff e.g. freebies or updates that comes from America can't be used in Britiain along with the game.

if you have to use a code to be able to play online (which I think that does) then will that work?
For a single player game I'd go for it but with heavily mp I don't think I would risk it, especially to save what is apparently £2.

You will find that the online pass code won't work here in the UK. Like others have said, you can pick it up cheap here if you shop around plus the pass code and DLC will work.
