Will US games work on UK PS3?
Yes they will work. PS2 games are still regionalised though so don’t buy any of them.
How much was PS3 when it first came out UK?
Hard done-by UK gamers were understandably unhappy at a price that compares unfavourably, to say the least, with US and Japanese prices of $599.99 and ¥60,000 – roughly £300 and £250 – respectively.
When did PS3 release UK?
March 23, 2007
The PlayStation 3 (PS3) is a home video game console developed by Sony Computer Entertainment. It is the successor to PlayStation 2, and is part of the PlayStation brand of consoles. It was first released on November 11, 2006, in Japan, November 17, 2006, in North America, and March 23, 2007, in Europe and Australia.
Are PS3 games zoned?
All PlayStation 3 games, except for Persona 4 Arena and Way of the Samurai 3, are region free. There is region locking for backwards-compatible PlayStation and PlayStation 2 games, as well as DVD and Blu-ray Disc movies.
How much does a PS3 cost in Ireland?
Which does, at least, explain why the PlayStation 3 will cost €629 (£415) in Ireland as opposed to €599 (£395) in continental Europe. But merely adding VAT of 17.5% to the US RRP would take us up to £352 – a still whopping £73 premium.
Is the PS4 the same as the EU?
Turkey’s not in the EU though. What @dominalien stated above is correct and applies to the PSP all the way up to the PS4. For the DLC to work from another country, it has to have the same (CUSA/BLES/PCSB/UCES – PS4/PS3/Vita/PSP) code to the base game whether it’s digital or retail. I think most UK and EU versions of games have the same codes.
Can a PS4 game be downloaded from another country?
For the DLC to work from another country, it has to have the same (CUSA/BLES/PCSB/UCES – PS4/PS3/Vita/PSP) code to the base game whether it’s digital or retail. I think most UK and EU versions of games have the same codes. Games from Germany can frequently be different as they sometimes have content removed.
Why are PS3 games different in North America?
All North American games are different because the starting 4 letters of the code is different to the UK (on PS3 the US has BLUS instead of BLES) and these codes are used to create folders on the HDD/Vita card/Memory stick which then holds the game data, dlc and save data.
