I just got my uncharted 3 copy and it says it's region FREE!

Does it mean that i could get dlc from all around the world?? Any Psn Store would work?

All PS3 titles are region free.  Thats means you can play any game you purchased from Japan/EU on your US PS3.

You should be able to sign on to any PSN account (either Japan or EU) and purchase extra contents, and they should be compatible with your copy of Uncharted 3.

All of them?

Most of my games are region 1, exclusively North America, Central and South, so i think being region free would work just fine with all of the other regions...

anyway thanks !!

Yes, all of them.  Even BD movies.  Nothing is region locked.  Even if you want to, you can't, since the specs do not let you have region locking.  Unlike Xbox or Wii.

Even if the games says "region 1", you still can play it on all PS3 consoles from any region.

Region free means you can play it on any PS3 console regardless of its region code, but DLC is restricted to the region code of your account.

If your UC3 is region 3, you can't redeem codes / download DLC using your US account.

Hey but...for example, i redeemed my online pass in the us store and it worked just fine, so it means that if i buy dlc from the us store it'll also work?

Thank you

I haven't tryed it yet.  But won't you be able to open an EU PSN account, sign in, and redeem your code on the EU PSN?  Once you've downloaded the new content, play your US version of the game with EU version of DLC?  Of course, this is assuming the EU PSN will let you use the US redeem code.

Well anyway, as i'm interested in getting dlc from the Us Store, i think there won't be any problem although it's worth checking if it's gonna work with the EU Store.

Thank you all ;D!

What's the region code of Uncharted 3? If its R1, (means US), then your good.

If it's another region, then it's kind of odd you were able to redeem codes in the US store.

There is no region lock for any PS3 game.  All PS3 games are region free.

Redeeming the code from one market zone and apply that code in a PSN account in a different zone, thats a different matter.
