Personally, I owned the original playstation and after that's only had an Xbox and a 360. Now I am thinking of getting a PS4. I just want to play Japanese games and anime titles that don't come to the states.

Now I was wondering how do I do that? If I remember right the ps3 games are region free so I assume the 4 will be as well but if there anything special I have to do to be able to play the games?

Is there patches to download somewhere to make the Japanese game in English or would I have to play blind and guess I am picking the right options as I cannot read in Japanese?

I just want to know everything I would need to know how to do this cause this is really the only reason why I want a ps4. So the more information the better. Thanks in advance.


Feel free to ask your own questions as well.

They're in japanese, if they have english versions then they are ported over.
You just kinda pick and wonder what you picked, which is why I try to do the ones with as few dialogue options as possible.

Also occasionally you can find fan-sites that translate all the options and you just scroll through the pictures and then match up what option you wanna say with which bubble it is.

It's incredibly unlikely that they would provide you a translation in any way. The games they want in english get ported. So your options would be limited to website walkthroughs or learning Japanese.

Question Regarding the PS4:

How do you all feel about having to pay for PS+ to play online and does anyone know if they're still planning to do the whole "free games" thing for + members?

PlayStation Plus will cost less than $5 per month, and will also provide access to discounted games, cloud saves, automatic game updates and new games for free every month. A special edition of Driveclub will be provided to all PlayStation Plus members on the PlayStation 4 immediately, and those of you with PS Plus subscriptions on the PS3 will have those carry over to the PS4.


Hope that answered your question ^_^
And I don't really mind paying for playing online. The server costs money, the free games 'plan' costs money and even more things costs money.
I'm happy when I can play online and single player. $5 per month isn't that much either.

I don't care about playing online but the free games and discounts you get makes PS+ totally worth it and as long as they continue with that then I'm all for it.

Agreed. I hope now that there is a required subscription fee for Online play it will push Playstation to improve their servers and just service overall.

PS4 is region free, PS+ is the same price and will continue to give free PSN/PS3/PS Vita games in addition to PS4 content as well.
