    Okay so I've been looking around the web but I can't find a proper answer. How exactly is the system region locked? Would a US PS3 run EURO games? As for DVD's (and etc.) it logically doesn't work with different region apps (right?). Thanks for anyone who can give me conclusive answer [​IMG].

    I think that it *is* region locked, however, the areas that regions coverare different for blu-ray disk. For example, region one for Blu-ray disks includes the Americas and Asia (except for China), so people who import Japanese games can play them on their US PS3s.

    Hey mate,

    Ps3 games are no region locked. I have a Jap ps3 and can play Pal games.

    DVD's and Ps2 games however will be locked to thier specific region.

    Hope that helps.
