Getting the Japanese version of Ape Escape on Japanese PSN

#1Moondoggie35Posted 12/4/2012 9:35:01 AM
I have a US PS3, I know there isn't region locking (99.9% of the time) or anything (I own more Japanese imports then US games at this point I think) and I also have a Japanese PSN account to download DLC and what not, but I'm not sure if there is some issue with Japanese ps1 games. Anyone bought one? Bushido Blade 1 and 2 might be fun to play again as well.

All the content purchased from any region PSN will work on any region PS3.

The only two things that you have to keep in mind are :
- DLC for one region will only work with a copy of the game from the same region
- Your TV has to support PAL and 50Hz resolution if you're going to download PAL PS1/PS2 titles.

so even if I don't have a Tv that auto shifts to PAL (I think mine does), I don't need to worry unless I'm purchasing from the EU store since Japanese ps1 and ps2 games are NTSC-J correct?

Absolutely nothing to worry about where PS1 titles are concerned. I got Ape Escape myself a few years ago.

I can confirm that you cannot play Pal games on NTSC-J TV`s
