Will UK games work on a Canadian PS3?

7 Replies 1,844 Views Created 29-05-2008

I have been given a gift voucher for a UK online store.

 

If I buy MGS4 when it is released, will it play on my North American 60GB Playstation 3?

 

Thanks

Yes, ALL ps3 games are region free and the places you bought games /ps3s from does not matter,

 

the only problem poeple have is if they have say, a USA version of guitar hero 3, and they have a psn account set for the UK, the downloadable content (dlc) will not be compatible 

 

so if you buy the game from the uk, and want dlc for MGO, you will need a UK psn, which is the only problem

 

hope that helps

 

p.s. ignore the post above mine, you can play online fine

How would you know, because some games only work on the servers they came from.

Re: Will UK games work on a Canadian PS3?

I just found the email address for Sony help and asked them the same question

 

Their reply:



Thank you for your recent correspondence.



Although the PlayStation 3 is able to play games from multiple regions
it is restricted when it comes to playing downloadable content. If you
have an American copy of a game but have downloaded additional content
from the European PlayStation Store, you will not be able to load the
additional content.



The correct game packs are available on the PlayStation Store that
corresponds to the region from which the game was purchased. However,
you will require a PSN account that is linked to an American
Residential Address.



I hope that this information is helpful, but if you should have any
further queries, then please call the Network Gaming Careline on 08702
422 299 (national rate) where a member of our team will be happy to
help you further.

 Thanks again for your time. I guess I'll just have to get the US version.

On the MGO BETA I played loads of yanks and a few Japanese players so am guessing the MGO is region free.
