PS3 from Japan. . .
  • Hey, I'm going to Japan in 1 weeks, I need an answer asap please... I was thinking in buy a PlayStation 3 80GB and lot of games... but a friends told me that it will only works with Japanese Games... is this truth?... if so, can 'hack' it or something to play with USA Games and the Japanese ones? ...
    Thanks for reading...
  • PS3 games are region free so you have no problems there. Your friend is right in regards to playing PSOne games, those would still be region-specific.

    To be honest, you would not save any cash by doing that (may actually be more expensive) plus you would need to use the Japanese store DLC for those imported games if planning to use add ons- the downloadable content in the PlayStation Stores is all specific to the region it is offered for. As an example, the Call of Duty 4 map packs in the US store are just for the North American release of the game. Save your money and buy a PS3 locally- no hassle with getting the thing through customs, either. ;)
