PSN zone restrictions

4 replies 205 views Edited Oct 6, 2011

I have a copy of Fifa Soccer 12 labeled zone 1 and my friend has a copy of the game labeled zone 2. Will we be able to play together online through Playstation Network? what restrictions should I be aware of when purchasing games from different zones?

You won't have a problem.  The only thing you need to worry about is getting proper DLC for the game should you decide to purchase some at some point.  The discs are region free, meaning that they can be played on any PS3, but the DLC must match the region of the disc in order for it to work.

If you aren't planning on buying any DLC you don't need to worry.

and is this true of all games? or some are restricted to online play divided by zones and some are region free? sorry if this is nagging it's just that i vaguely remember that PES 2011 for example, was restricted through it's regions. so you could only play online with people who have a copy with the same region as you. although my memory could be off.

If it's not true of all then it is true of the majority of games, I have family in based in three other countries & we all play online together fine, I don't thiunk you need to be to concerned.
