1. Region 1 (United States of America)

Region 2 PS4

The first way to find out the region of the PlayStation 4 cassette is by looking at the front cover of the game cassette to see if the rating system is being used.

For the United States, they use the ESRB rating system which does not use an age number, only the usual categories that read Teen, Everyone and Adult only.

The code on the side of the game says CUSA or none, but only in the form of numbers and the back cover of the cassette reads number one (All).

2. Region 2 (Europe)

Region 1 PS4 1

To find out, this region 2 cassette game uses the PEGI rating system which reads the appropriate age for playing the cassette game.

On the side of the cassette, you can see the European region with the initials code CUSA and the numbers below it.

Region 2 uses game cassettes distributed from Japan and has a difference, namely for these cassette games to use Japanese, it can be seen from the cover and the language in the games.

3. Region 3 (asia)

Region 1

The next Region 3 is Asia, more precisely the State of Indonesia. The Indonesian region is marked with the number 3 on the back cover of the PS4 game cassette.

However, region 3 does not have a symbol and becomes an initial benchmark for determining a region in the game.

There are several problems in the case of regional 3 cassette games having covers like region 1 cassette games aka America.

To overcome this and find out, the way is to look at the side of the game cassette cover.

There is a code that reads PCAS and PLAS which indicates the code has the final letter AS, it can be ascertained that it is a region from Asia.

4. Region 4 (Others)

There are many cassette games with other regions outside the country, but rarely in Indonesia.

These include the following.

R4 – Australia, Central America, the Caribbean, Mexico, Oceania, South America.

R5 – Africa, Former Soviet Union, India, Mongolia, North Korea.

R6 – Mainland China.

The final word

What distinguishes the region from other regions? Considering that the devices on the PS4 use a region free system and can play cassette games in any region.

The difference you can see is that the PSN ID must be created by the owner to buy or download DLC (Download Content) games from the games being played. DLC can only be downloaded and used in games that match the region in the games.
