There's apparently (commercial) software which enables this called
"freeloader". I gather it was intended mostly for playing U.S. games in
europe: I don't know if there are problems with other region
There's also a hardware mod you can make to add a switch for switching
between U.S. and Japanese mode (the hardware is identical except for a
single connection on the motherboard). I think various companies offer
a mod service for those who aren't skillful with that sort of thing.
