Default Buying USA blu-ray discs

Was just wondering if I brought a blu-ray disc(s) via amazon.com, if this would play in my PS3 in Australia? Hoping someone can help before I buy.

Many, but by no means all, Blu-rays are region-locked. The US is region A, Australia is region B (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blu-ray_Disc). To avoid frustration, make sure the disc will play on your set-up by consulting this first:

Hope that helps.

My pleasure. Unfortunately, there's no reliable rule of thumb, except that Warner releases are always cool (hope it stays that way) whereas Fox are the useless pricks they've alwas been.
