DAVS500 & region coding



Guys, I'm confused.

I ordered r2 spiderman from CD-WOW and they sent the r4 version, my DAVS500 is not chipped & won't play r1 but it seems to play r4 OK (checked briefly before I left for work), is this normal ? Will I be able to play all r4 releases ?

Also, is there any difference between r2 & r4 in terms of quality/content ?

Many thanks to anyone who can shed some light.

Yes mate thats normal.
R2 and R4 are both PAL.You do still find some R4 disc's will not play,but there's not many.The other good thing about R4 is they are nearly half the price of R2 and dont come in snapper cases.

There is a site somewhere listing the compatible disc's.

Hope this helps.
