    So if you have a Japanese PS3 and a US game (like Resisstance for example) you would get gore on the screen.
    But a japanese version on the US PS3 would run too, but without gore.

    Am I right?
    No ! I have a Jap PS3 and a Jap game. With a US save game you get the gore.

    As far as I recall the probem (with PS2 anyway) playing PAL DVDs on NTSC consoles (movies that is) was that the buffer used to play the movies only supports 480 lines on NTSC consoles whereas PAL consoles support upto 576 lines to playback the PAL standard. As the NTSC console's buffer isnt big enough to draw 576 lines it failes to play any PAL movies.

    You could (if you have the hardware) simply run it through DVD Shrink and make the disk region free. If its simply a matter of locking out the region # then this will take both the PS3 and the movie disk itself out of the equation leaving your TV as the sole remaining factor.

    ^^^ i wondered about that, simply removing the region code doesn't automatically make a PAL DVD turn into NTSC though, so it would still be in the PAL format for us NTSC PS3 owners (talking about regular DVDs, not games)

    If its the same as the PS2 then region codes arent the problem even using ARMax or GameShark a NTSC PS2 cannot play PAL DVDs due to the frame buffer.

    If this is the same on PS3 then no region meddling will fix this.

    Correct. The video output won't be changed. But there are some tools to convert them into NTSC or PAL. But if you don't want to copy the disc and try to convert them, than you gonna need a TV which supports NTSC and PAL as well.

    But about that region code, that depends on your DVDPlayer. On PS2 you can use something like swapdisc or what they're named or if you have an exploited PS2 you can use a software to bypass it :-)

    But with the PS3, i'm not sure yet (don't have it yet) But I think there are some programs to bypass the region code via Linux

    Well i'm planning to import a PS3 from Asia (Hong Kong, but I think they sell Japanese versions) But i'm afraid about those regioncodes security on games (in the future, maybe?). So far that I know is that the games aren't locked, but BR-films does. Is it better to wait EU release or Import it? ( I don't wanna import games later, wanna play games from EU then)

    but this was not previously stated - my XBOX plays both PAL and NTSC, but i didn't know the 360 does as well.... something M$ certainly has the advantage over $ONY at the moment!!! i'm really looking forward to get down to just one system, but unfortunately, it doesn't look like i'll be void of my XBOX any time soon....

    It's because Underworld 2 is a region free Bluray movie. I did a search on the net and is one of the movies that's not region locked. been meaning to buy the Australian release for use on my Japanese PS3.
