Each game list is divided into 3 different parts:

2 - SERIAL: Every game when it was released got his own serial that difference him from the rest of versions that that game got in each region. For example in Japan there are games that got some re-releases and got a different serial for each release, or in PAL there are games that were released in different languages depending of the game serial.

This is important, since as I said in the SERIAL part some games got different releases depending of the language is important to say what language got each game release. In the Playstation Datacenter we're going to use this letters for each language:

IMPORTANT: When a game only got one of these letters that game serial only got that language, if a game serial got more than one letter, the game is multilanguage.
