Default Multi-Region PS3

Seeing that the PS3 is multi-region, could I play import (US and Japanese) Blu-Ray films on a UK PS3?

The PS3 is region-free in terms of gaming only. BD movies are still region-coded. UK is a different region from Japan or the US. Although there are many BD movies out right now that aren't even region-coded.

Sorry for being challenged, so one gets a Japan version PS3, it would be able to play BD movies from US? That's really all I would use it for. No importing BD titles for me.

Japan and North America share the same BD-movie region (region A). You should have no worries.

The only way to play an american Blu-ray disc on a UK PS3 is for the disc to be region free. Some discs are region free while some are not. Casino Royale is a disc that is not.

Its a bit of a joke that the european(at least spanish) version of casino royale was a BD-25 and was actually region free
