If you look at the forthcoming release section at play247.com you'll notice an increase in region 1 RCE discs. Yes, Warner now seems to have joined Columbia Tristar in adopting this facility. Not only obvious new releases such as "Driven" and "Exit Wounds" are affected, but classic re-releases like "Gremlins" and "Ghandhi". Will this spread to region 4? Luckily (from my point of view) my modified Pioneer DVL 919, can manually accept region code changes (as well as autochange) thus negating the problem. I'm sure this greater proliferation of RCE discs is going to impact on a lot of end users, who are not so fortunate to have compatible hardware.
