Been trying to use my PS2 to play DVDs but where I am at the moment (Malta) seems only to sell region 1 DVDs and my PS2 will only play region 2. So I wondered if anyone could answer the following questions: Is it legal to sell region 1 DVDs in Europe? I thought they were for the US market only. How can I tell what region a DVD is for if it doesnt say so on the sleeve? I picked up a copy of Master And Commander which had no indication of what region it was for. When I asked the shopkeeper he informed me that it was region 1 because it was marked as NTSC format. Does the fact that its NTSC or PAL always indicate region 1 or 2 respectively? Does anyone know an easy way of converting my PS2 to a multi-region DVD player? Ive done several googles on this but they turn up pages for out of date products from when the PS2 first came out and nothing current.
