PS4 – Playing DVDs from other regions
A couple of weeks ago, I posted a video with the unboxing of my Playstation 4 (pt-BR audio only). I live in Brazil and as you may know, the official price of the console here is beyond absurd, so I did what most do and bought an imported one. The specific model is CUH-1115A; that’s the latest American model.
Some viewers asked questions in the comments about DVD playback. They wanted to know whether they’d be able to watch their Brazilian DVDs on the American PS4. We all know the PS4 is region-locked for movie media, be it Blu-Ray or DVD (thankfully, there’s no such locking for games).
I searched around the internet and could not find a definitive answer. In fact, all the information I found led me to believe it was not possible at all. However, I decided to try it out and found that, yes, you can indeed adjust the region code setting, which will allow you to play DVDs from a region other than your console’s original one. The one thing to keep in mind is that the number of changes is limited, so you can’t keep going back and forth indefinitely.
Even though I don’t use the PS4 to play DVD movies, I hope this video can help those who do. I also chose to record it in English so that it can be accessible to more people who might be wondering about this subject.
Aos brasileiros: estou preparando legendas em português para acompanhar o vídeo.
