    [Answered] Changing the PS3's general region?

    So I was hoping to find out how to run PS2 imports on my PS3 without dropping money on the Swap Magic and was exploring the xRegistry.sys file when I noticed something.


    Now, I'm not very tech-savy, to be honest, which is why I'm asking this: would changing this change your PS3 region? Like, make it think that it's a Japanese PS3 as opposed to a US one, therefore allowing the play of Japanese games, DVDs, online in PS3 imports, etcetera?

    If not, is there a way to do this? Or a way to run PS2 imports on a PS3? I'm on a 60GB PS3 CECHA01, by the way.

    The Playstation 3 system is regions free. That means you could play games from all regions regardless of where your system was intended to be sold in.

    it is region free but only for ps3 games. ps1 and ps2 games are still region locked so jap ps2/ps1 games won't play on a us ps3.

    Use PS3 Registry xRegistry.sys File Editor and edit it with that tool.
