Japan and US to have the same Blu-Ray reigon code
This would be oh so awsome if this stayed true for not just BLu-Ray'd movies but games as well. According to IT Media and GamersReports, Japan, the US and East Asia will share the same Blu-Ray reigon code. Meaning that you won't have to do any kind of tom foolery to get your Aisan imported media to play on your US device, and vice versa. While the Playstation 3 doesn't get mentioned specifically, I would think it would be safe to assume that since the Playstation 3 will be a Blu-Ray console, you would be able to play only-released-in-Japan Playstation 3 games on your US bought Playstation 3 console. I would think it would be safe to assume that, but then again, I'm no fortune teller. We'll see how this pans out but it would be pretty cool if my assumptions were correct. As for Europe? You guys get the shaft...again. You'll share the same reigon code as Africa but a different one that the big three that were previously metioned (see above and quit skipping thru articles moron).
