    hey guys, i bought a ps3 recently whilst in hong kong and i wanna play ps2 games final fantasy 12 , god of war etc, my ps3 is ntsc so i cant play the uk versions. what i wanna know is if i can play back any ntsc version of the game or if it has to be the specific hong kong version. so the main thing is can i play U.S discs? as they will be in english.

    cheers.

    You won't be able to play US PS2 (NTSC/U ) games on it I'm afraid. I'm not 100% certain but I suspect the only PS2 games compatible with it will be the Asian ones and probably Japanese ones ( both NTSC/J ). These will all be in Japanese. Someone else with an HK machine may be able to confirm this. I know on the PS2 that's the way it is and most likely it's the same on the PS3.
