so you can buy asian / japanese or us games and they will work on a UK spec (march launch) console then?

are the asian/ japanes mainstream booklets in english? I know from buying 360asian games from play-asia that they are.

Outstanding experiences with Videogames +.

Good experiences with dvdpacific and yes asia.

Bad experiences with Movietyme.

So far all PS3 games have been region free so they will work on any PS3 anywhere in the world.

As for the booklets, Asian releases might have English packaging/booklets but Japanese releases wont.

Well seeing as the UK PS3 isnt released until March there is no way to be 100% certain but the games are region free so yes they should work.

agree completely but it will be interesting to see what happens with the £ being so strong against the $. will sony sell any software at all in europe if things continue as they are for a sustained period.

it won't look very good if they don't make it into the games charts with any of their titles. i really don't know what they will do about it but if there is no region coding on the disks then there is no region coding on the disks so they don't have any option but to bite their bottom lip and wait for the value of the £ to drop a bit.

Is it the games that are definatly region free or the consoles? I'm a bit confused because the American version of 'Resistance' says Region 1, and not 'region free'...I'm reluctant to remove the wrapper until March unless I know it'll work lol.

PSP games also show the region 1 or 2 symbol on them and it doesn't mean anything other than the territory it was released in.

As Indiana said though, the UK PS3 is not out yet so we can't say for sure what it'll be capable of.
