Is the PS3 as a blu ray player region locked as i have a PAL PS3 but would like to watch blu ray movies from other regions. I have seen info about the games being region free but what about the player?

As chancer said, Blu-Ray, DVD and PS2/1 games are all region locked, only PS3 games are not.

contains that list. check it before you buy because if the movie is a different region code it will not work. The ones tested as region free on the list should be fine

This is the main reason I prefer HDDVD over BluRay, they just made it into another restricted media all over again.
