    So I want to buy two Blu-ray discs from amazon.co.uk (because the damn things have no release date in the US yet). They are Region ABC, so I know that the region encoding isn't a problem. The problem is whether they encoded at 50hz or 60hz. I've Googled the hell out of this and the most up to date info I can find is from over a year ago. Some people report that 50hz won't play in their PS3, some say it works fine, and all agree is a firmware issue.

    Has anyone tried? Any info on this? If a disc is Region ABC, will it play in a US PS3 no matter what?

    I say order one and see if it works.
    PS3 is made to be region free, but wouldnt the 50 hz/60 hz have to do with the tv rather than the ps3?
    because AFAIK, the model of ps3 they release for different territories is identical.
