November 2008[edit]

Information.svg Welcome to Wikipedia! I am glad to see you are interested in discussing a topic. However, as a general rule, talk pages such as Talk:PlayStation 3 are for discussion related to improving the article, not general discussion about the topic. If you have specific questions about certain topics, consider visiting our reference desk and asking them there instead of on article talk pages. Thank you. I understand that this is a problem that actually merits replies and discussion, but Wikipedia is not the best place for that. Please find a forum somewhere else for such discussion. Personally, I am under the impressions that some games are region-free and some are not, depending on their content and who produced them, so you're better off buying a PS3 back home than here. If you buy in America and buy American games via the internet, you might have problems with internet connectivity and access to online play. Check out the blu-ray disc article to read up on the regions if you want to know more about that. KhalfaniKhaldun 11:17, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Reply concerning PS3[edit]

Adding a chip to do so is doubtful, and rather difficult anyway. If it's similar to the Wii, then the region compatibility is actually part of the hardware. If it's not then it is possible that someone could release custom firmware, I suppose, if the PS3 is hackable, but I haven't heard of anyone doing so. I know on the Wii you can actually just solder a couple nodes together and it will be region-free, but I've not heard of anyone doing this for the PS3, either. I'd be too scared to open mine up and play with its insides, anyway. =/

One thing you might want to look into is that you can install several versions of Linux on the PS3 on a separate partition. Assuming you could find a good PS3 emulator, then, it may be ale to work that way. You'd have to do some research about that first, though - I'm not entirely sure whether that would work or not.
