I'm going to buy Assassins Creed 3 on amazon.com, but my friend told me if I buy it from there, I can't play because I have a PS3 from Iceland (where I live). It is true?

Does the PS3 have region locking that will prevent a US copy of Assassin's Creed 3 from playing on an Icelandic PS3?


As far as I know all PS3 games are infact region free. The same cannot be said about Blu-Ray movies though.

Source 3

and of course there's this question as pointed out by Colin.

However most of these are only forum posts. If I get chance will have a good search for some concrete evidence from Sony.

Happy gaming :)


Yes. the games are region free.
