    is it an american Ps2?
    if so, NO.
    why would you think that it could? they've never been able to play foreign games, and it is an "official" DVD player, so it has to have region lockout.
    you can probably mod it, but it's shady and this forum prolly shouldn't be used for such.

    PAL DVDs won't play on American PS2s.......PERIOD. They are only designed to output NTSC video signals.

    yes. always has been that way with consoles.
    there are NTSC/PAL issues AND Territorial lockouts.
    various regions have different combinations.

    i just read about an accessory in the latest Electronic Gaming Monthly that lets you play any region dvd's with the PS2. i forget what it was though, just that it only works with the older PS2s with the version 1.something drivers (not 2.something).
