    US account

    Hey everyone.

    I'm planning on getting the DLC trophies for uncharted 2, but i can't seem to download the DLC's. I know some of my american friends are able to, and i was wondering if i would be able to make a US account, download the content, and use it on my EU account?

    Is this possible at all?

    The disc and DLC regions need to match ie USA DLC only works with USA disc.

    The disc will indicate the region, just buy the DLC from the correct PSN account (US, UK etc) and it'll work on all other PS3 accounts.

    I managed to play US LA Noire DLC on a Japanese disk. I guess regions 1 and 3 are compatible in some games.

    Are sure bout that? You should start a thread about what games can pull this off. That Japanese version of L.A Noire playing US DLC's...makes me wonder.

    Why not just buy the EU DLC if you've already got the EU disc?

    Otherwise, yes.

    Regions 2 and 4 are compatible for most games (PAL regions), I haven't heard of any compatibility between 1 and 3 before (NTSC regions).

    i would do just that because if you were to buy the DLC's for another version and your not happy because it will not play, then it's your fault. Even if there is 1 trophy list, it's best to be safe then sorry.

    To sum up: With a US disc and a US account i can download the DLC, and i'll be able to use the DLC on my EU account...
    Will it just work automatically with my EU version then?

    Sorry for all the questions i just want to be sure before i buy anything
