    -SNIP- It is an issue with the game or the PS3. If it was region locked the game wouldn't start at all.

    Hey, I saw that you have pipo saru 2001 and I'm really behind an iso of this game would be possible to send me the iso or the link where you got it, I had the disk but I loaned it to my cousin who ended up selling the console Him with my game and I'm very keen to play it: /

    We can't share links to warez here unfortunately. It's against the rules.

    You could try making it into s "PS2 Classic" and see if it runs that way instead of from disc. All the PS2 games I've done that with have worked well (including jap region locked games). My PS3 is a slim so there's no official BC on it.

    yes i got an iso online with redump md5 and same thing, i even dumped my own iso and nope, im guessing this game just isnt compatible with the ps2 "emulator" fat ps3 uses.

    I think because your ps3 is playing an ntsc game on a pal ps2 mode? I know some games do work even in wrong video mode but some do freeze, forbiden siren 2 eu came in to my mind. No matter how you patch this pal game it will freeze on a ntsc ps2
