    I have two PS3s so technically 2x BDPs (3 if you count the Wii U but it doesn't actually play normal Blu-rays) but problem being they're region locked to Region B and I'd like to have access to Region A to play Blu-rays limited to that region only.

    I've seen that there's a Toshiba on eBay for £125 region free Blu-rays and DVDs but I wouldn't give it a whole lot of use so seems to be a bit too much for it.

    So what're my options?

    my dad works for nintendo.
    related note. i remember seeing options about dvd regions on windows, you could only change the region 5 times on a dvd reader :(
    this is still the case? and is that lock really effective?

    However there could be a third party way to play any region but I don't know.(also using Linux could maybe work)

    But most DVD players it seems limit the changes :(

    You can change it up to X amount of times or try to look up for a modified firmware. There's still laptops which have this stupid region lock.
