    On play.com, every game advertised for the PS3 suggests that it will play on UK & European PS3s only!!!!

    Have been seeing other posts state, that it is completely region free for games???

    Can anyone put me straight?

    The machine is region free, but region locking of software is left up to the developers.

    according to sony's phil harrison... games will be region free for the ps3...

    http://games.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=06/03/23/0021243


    "IGN writes that "In a QA session following the platform keynote address at GDC 2006 this morning, Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President Phil Harrison confirmed what was heavily demanded for import gamers all over the world and yet previously thought unthinkable for a major corporation: the PS3 will be region-free for gaming." There's no chance that the MPAA members would allow the same for movies but at least it's a step in the right direction.
