Demo_disk is almost correct,
but i have a HK NTSC PS3 and i can play both USA and UK Blu ray dvds, it depends if they are Region A/B/C
USA/ Japan / and Hong Kong (NOT China) use region A
European and Australasian PS3's use region B,

alot of the blu ray dvd's are region ABC so it doesn't matter, so just check the back of the case.

ALL PS3 GAMES are REGION FREE

Hi all

I just read through the thread and I'm not all happy
On page two wrote somebody that with software 1.6 should all DVDs start to work, a few posts later it was again a No.
So, now with todays firmware and an american PS3, what will work in europe and what not? (not in France ;) )

thanks,
pato
