Best Answer

Games for disc-based consoles are region locked. You can't play a Japanese version of MGS4 on a American or European PS3, for example. Cartridge based consoles (especially portables) do not have region-locking.

So. Either get an NTSC PlayStation or scam someone else to get your money back.

(Can't believe that someone would not actually be aware of region-locking... sigh...)
