    Unhappy [UnAnswered] PS3 NTSC to PAL

    Sponsored Links
    hi guys,

    i bought a ps3 from america a few months ago before it was released here in australia. i thought that i could get backwards capabilities with ps2 games but seems not, also cannot get pal dvds to play. was wondering if its possible in any way to change the format of the whole ps3 from ntsc to pal, either from servicing or one way or another? help needed

    thanks in advance

    exactly, Sony's not at fault here for you importing a system that wasn't designed for your region.... there is no fix, as there isn't a fix for us not being able to play PAL DVDs in our NTSC boxes.... only hope for you now is to dump it off on eBay for anyone in the NTSC region to pick it up then get one at the store in AU since they're now available!

    sometimes jumping the gun doesn't work! :hitw

    Do some reading over on the Linux board here. If you install linux as the OtherOS there is a programs called VLC that will play your PAL DVDs on the NTSC PS3.
