Ps3 regions –
I have a Ps3 CECH 2006A. I read somewhere thats the ntsc J version.
Does that mean if I have a ntsc E or Ntsc U game I cant download DLCs?
How does PSN work?
And someone explain to me the regions. Which one is region 1 or 2 or 3?

Anyone can spot their region by reading of the last Two Digits of their CECH Code. The first Two give the Model Nr. (i.e a 20xx Slim) the last Two the Region it was sold in. The A or B at the end indicates the HDD Size 120Gb or 250Gb. Although I marked your SEA (06) as not being Japan. It more then likely IS compatible with Japanese NTSC DLC...
I can only guess that your inquiring about DLC, as any fule kno the PS3 doesn't use Region restrictions on their Games. Unless your Atlas, and the Game you want to play is Persona Arena, and you live in Europe. Then thats another story.
As for NTSC-E THERE IS NO SUCH A THING. Europe uses PAL or in parts of it SECAM (Mostly France & Russia).
If you have an outta region Game that needs to be updated or you want to get DLC for it, you need to setup a new PSN account for that Region. So you can then access it. You should also find a place to get valid PSN Gift Cards too. So you can actually purchase stuff.
As DLC can ONLY work with the same region Game.
One last thing about Region Codes, THEY DO NOT REFLECT BLUERAY CODES! Those are different, and are only used for BlueRay Movies.
thank you very much ichi. My one is from south east asia it seems. I was wondering if there would be any problem in updating my games. I have metal gear solid Hd collection BLES 01419. I registered an account at PlayStation® : PS4. Thats the NTSC - U region right? But My game is BLES, which I think is the European region. How was I able to update my game even though BLES mean european? Isn't my account US?
