Does anyone here think it will be possible later for people to crack the region coding and make the PS3 completely region free where it plays everything dvds, blu ray etc. Also is it possible to buy a completely region free console now? When i say completely region free i mean completely region free not just for the games as that is available now as games are region free!!

Thanks: colors1

i believe it will be done as soon as the firmware updates start to settle.

Similar to the PSP - lots of things were done as soon as 'modders' knew exactly which areas to concentrate on.

VLC (movie player) apparently works on the PS3 therefore the PS3 is completely region free (VLC plays the DVD and blu-ray movies through a Linux install on the PS3)

The only problem you would have with regions is the frame rate on the tvs unless you have a new hd one you will be ok. All it takes is a moddded firmware to come out. Seeing how Sony dont wnat to change there encryption keys on the psp firmwares i can see it happening.
