NTSC J games on North American PS3, possible?

  1. hi there, im thinking on getting a couple of Japan-only games by the end of the year, but im not sure if its possible (the thread title is quite self-explanatory).

    I have the 60GB-$500 version, which I heard is the best one regarding backwards compatibility.

    [edit] sorry, forgot to mention, i want to play ntsc-j ps2 games

    I'm 99% sure that Japanese and American PS3 games are in the same region - the same goes for Bluray disks. You can't play Japanese PS2 or PS1 games in your American PS3 though.

    I believe Wikipedia told me that PS3 games are not region locked.
