    yep i heard it was because of the blue ray disk's capacity so they could store different laungages on it and to reduce the number of consoles being modded

    Does that work for movies too? Because they are gonna be in 3 regions for blu-ray and having the first affordable player (the ps3) not having region-coding would sort of kill that idea from the off

    Sorry, they're still using region coded Blu-Ray discs (looks like we'll have to wait for region free players to come out again...).

    But not all movie companies r gonna want to make their dvd's blueray compatible, don't u think? Or even make seperate discs especially for blueray technology.
