Some are region coded, not all. You need to be aware of region coding as well as the occasional 50hz content on non-US discs which some US players (like the PS3) will not play.

Certain studios, like Disney and their subsidiaries, always release their BDs region-locked. Warner, Paramount and Universal are not region-locked in my experience. Smaller disc companies like Criterion and Kino are also generally region-locked.

I was led to believe by some of my coworkers that PS3's can generally play any type of BD's and are the most flexible type of BluRay players available for consumers. Its true that they are primarily game consoles, but i occasionally try to use them for home entertainment as well.


Was my understanding incorrect about PS3's ?
