Will American PlayStation games work on a UK PlayStation?

"Yes, the playstation is 'region free' on games. This means American games (region 1) can be played on a UK console (region 2). The playstation is only 'region locked' on movies." This is wrong, PS1 and 2 are not region free on games, for a UK system you must have a PAL formatted disc for it to play, American and canadiam disc and consoles are formatted differently therefor you will not be able to play them. The PS3 however, sony decided to make region free games but it is still region locked on DVD's.

No, the games are region locked. Like the games I bought in the US have the number 1 on the side, so your PS3 would have to be region code 1.This answer is infact, wrong. The PS3 is region free. Meaning games from all around the world can be played on it. The only things which wont work on your ps3 because of a region lock are PS1 games, PS2 games and Blu-ray films.Sources: I have been abroad numerous times and bought PS3 games. They have all worked.
