    1- Blu-ray movies are region coded, the reason being that movie companies don't want their product to be shown in other areas before they official release it there.

    2- Same answer as 1.

    3- Even though PS3 games don't have a region code, PS2 games still do and will only play on PS3 systems from the same region.


    As of right now, I don't think there is a way to remove the region format of PS3 systems; please correct me if I'm wrong. I apologize if anyone here made you believe that the PS3 was completely region free, but at least you got a gaming system at a good price.
