Default Silly PS3 Question..

sorry I don't know the answer to this

I only ever imported HD-DVD's but I wanted to import a few BD titles and I wondered if they would play on my UK PS3?? Is it all reigon free just like HD-DVD??

If they wouldn't play on my PS3 is there anyway to unlock the PS3...like some kind of remote crack? just like they had on DVD players....

Nope, sorry.

The PS3 is only region free for games. For BD movie titles a new region coding is in effect. They've simplified it now to three regions. Generally speaking, Region A is the Americas, Southeast Asia, Japan, Taiwan, Korea and Hong Kong.

Region B is Europe, Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.

Region C is China, Russia and India.

And the PS3 hasn't been cracked yet. Though rapid progress of piracy in medium, it's probably a foregone conclusion that it'll happen.

Or actually, just follow the below advice. While Region coding is present in the PS3, not all studios necessarily follow it...

Check this site (http://bluray.liesinc.net/) to see if your desired titles play on your PS3. You're region B.
