PS3 is region-free, but there's a hi-def catch

Though the PlayStation 3 is not locked by any particular region, meaning a Japanese PS3 should play European titles, there is one caveat as far as technology is concerned.

The story is too old to be commented.

This actually relieves me. At first I was under the impression that I would need a PAL tv to play ANY PAL game. That would blow!

I can't believe joystiq made a story out of this!
And they call themselves a gaming site...
Sony or MS should buy the idiots and can all their butts!
And trying to screw with Jaffe, thats just stupid! lol

Well I didn't know.

I'm still using an old TV..actually most my friends are too.
We're waiting for our old TV's to die or until Feb 2009.

also lotsa movies ARE region locked, and ALL PS2 and PS1 titles are region locked (in case you want to play the old games ;) )

and then you have to add toll and taxes and shipping ontop .. not a bargain in my view, cause you also have no one to turn your warranty in in a rare case of a defect ....
