    I own a UK PAL PS3 and having returned from the US with blueray discs i find they dont work and the PS3 states that they are the wrong region?

    am i just stupid or isn't it supposed to be region free.

    The games are region free but alot of movies are region locked

    if you do a search on google for

    region free blu ray movies

    or

    bluray liesinc

    they should be able to tell you whats region locked and whats not.

    these saved a mate of mine from wasting money buying the die hard boxset from america
