Will American PlayStation 3 games work on a European PlayStation 3?
yes the ps3 is a universal system which means you can buy PS 3games from anywhere on this planet and they will play on any system, this was a new installment sony made when creating the ps3, because in the past the ps1 and ps2 are not universal
BEWARE!!! PS3 IS A REGION FREE CONSOLE BUT SOME GAME MANUFACTURERS MAY REGION LOCK THE DISCS. I'D LOOK IN TO IT FIRST BEFORE YOU MAKE ANY BIG BUYS.
Yes PlayStation 1 and 2 are region locked. This means if you have an American PS2 (or 1) you can only play American games, no European, Japanese, etc. The PS3 and PSP , on the other hand, are region free, this means if you have a European ps3 or psp, you can buy games from japan (if you want) and it will work.
"Yes, the playstation is 'region free' on games. This means American games (region 1) can be played on a UK console (region 2). The playstation is only 'region locked' on movies." This is wrong, PS1 and 2 are not region free on games, for a UK system you must have a PAL formatted disc for it to play, American and canadiam disc and consoles are formatted differently therefor you will not be able to play…
