i brought a ps3 console with me from the mid east to the states, but recently i figured out that most blu ray movies are region locked .. now if i buy a new blu ray drive would it make any difference or does the region locking thing depends solely on the console ??

It is probably both. The games should be region locked as well.

If it is just for watching BD movies, a standalone BD player will probably cheaper (and consumes less power) than buy another BD drive which may or may not be possible to fix the region lock.
