    Default Blu Ray from abroad..will they work?

    Does anyone know if Blu Ray discs from the states will work over here, or are they region coded like DVD's and you have to get an unlocked Blu Ray player. I use my PS3 which is great but don't want to buy any and find out I can't play them, thanks

    Looking at it the last one is the best one as it names each film and weather or not its region free or not

    Nice one, looks like you can't make the PS3 multi region. I was hoping to get some Blu Ray from the US before they're released over here in about 200 years, we are so slow at releasing movies.

    They aren't - I have loads from the US (and a Jap one) that work perfect - they may have PAL on them, but they aren't region locked.
