What Region Is My PlayStation?

BY 2K Mike



If you are traveling (or moving) to a different country and decide to buy a 2K title for your PlayStation, you should make sure that the disc will actually work with your console while abroad. 

Sony's consoles (and games) generally fall under one of many regional groups: SIEA (Sony Interactive Entertainment of America) and SIEE (Sony Interactive Entertainment of Europe) are two of the largest. Technically, the PS isn't a region-locked device. That said, Sony recommends your discs and consoles be from the same region for the best performance. Additionally, when you create a PSN Online ID, it is generally tied to the region of your PlayStation console.

Now: If you have a game that's made for a different region than your PS or PSN Online ID, there's a chance it might work fine. But there's also a good chance that you might experience some kind of unforeseen issue. 

For almost all 2K games, PSN online and DLC functionality will not work if you play one region’s disc in another region’s PS. This is because even though PlayStation games aren't region-locked, DLC is tied to your regional store, and PSN Online IDs from other regions may not be able to log in to the PSN properly if you are abroad. 

If you're having problems playing your game and are unsure you have a region mismatch, go to the in-game store. If you can't see anything to purchase, then you likely have a region issue.

Please consult the lists below for more information about what region your country falls under. If you have more questions about your PS and region compatibility, please reach out to PlayStation Support.
