    I'm keen on purchasing a Concert DVD from CD Baby and it stated its region free but mentioned its in NTSC (for european customers information). Will I have any issues with this. My plasma is okay with NTSC.

    I'm pretty sure a UK PS3 won't play NTSC DVDs. I did some research a little while ago on how to get a PS3 that would cross the boundaries, but the only thing you can really do is play some UK BDs on a US PS3. Other options for flexibility seem to be lost, sadly. Lots of DVD players don't have this option either.

    Yes it plays (region free or region 2) NTSC DVDs.

    Don't forget that Japan is region 2 and NTSC, so all our DVD players have to play NTSC as well.

    Mine doesn't :confused: or didn't! I need to try again.

    I purchased a Japanese unit on first release last year..I have plenty of 0 & NTSC discs. I replaced my Japanese player for a UK one on the European release only to find it wouldn't play my NTSC discs

    yet if you're in Japan, a region 2 player shoudl in theory also play PAL discs but generally they don't.
