Looking into ordering a few DVD's that I want, and can't get on Blu-Ray, and was wondering if the Ps3 is multi-region on DVD play back? I know that Blu-Rays discs are region coded and games aren't.
This topic is locked from further discussion.
If you mean can it play DVD's and Blu-Ray movies that have a different region than the PS3, No. It can't. The only multi-region playback it does is PS3 games. WalterPeck
Boo! As I want to order South Park season 8 and 9 and they're not region 2. So that's out the window then! I know that the games aren't coded and that Blu-ray disc's are I just thought that regular DVD's from the USA etc might work. Oh well!
As far as i know it works like this:
PS3 Games: Region Free
PS2 Games: Region Locked
PS1 Games: Region Locked
Bluray Movies: Region Locked
DVD Movies: Region Free
I know this cause ive ordered and played several games from the US for PS3 and also some Region 1 DVDs (just watched Evangelion 1.0 which is region 1 and worked fine)
Hmmm... It would be sweet if my North American PS3 plays Region 3 DVD, I used to have a region unlock for my original PS2 and I used to buy Godzilla films from Hong Kong because they were English subtitled without the horrid dubbing (for awhile, it was the only way to get copies of certain G films). I shall have to try them when I get home. I would be VERY happy if they can be played. I never even thought to try!
