Default PS3 region free

Is the PS3 region free? If so could I order a blu-ray that is only available in Europe and be able to play it in the states without a problem? thanks for any help.

The PS3 is not technically region free. It uses a new region designation where North America and Japan now fall under "Region A" but most Blu-Ray movies don't actually enforce the region coding. There are a few exceptions to this, but for the most part, UK/European imports are generally safe. But check first to be sure that the movie you're interested in isn't one of the ones that actually uses region coding.

Try this site:

Though according to that site, you're safe with purchasing both, so fire away.

For PS3/PSN games, yeah.

For BD and DVD movies, PS1 & PS2 games, no.
