Blu-ray Region Code Workaround for Some Movie Titles?
Posted by XanTium | 26-1-2008 0:08 EST
I got a region A (American) copy of Shoot 'Em Up which is region locked (which i did'nt know about at the time).
After i put it into my UK PS3 and clicked onto the filmes icon (BDMV), the machine thought about it and a message came up in big letters saying REGION INCOMBATIBILITY. Then it goes back to the PS3 menues
Tried it a few times and it done the same over and over again.
So on the last try when the "region incombatibility" message came up i pressed the triangle on the controller, which brings up the pop-up menu and clicked on "TOP MENU" then BINGO the films menu came on .
Everything on the film works OK and the film plays all the way through.
I dont know if this would work on other titles?. But it works on this one
Other reported region A(region locked) titles that also work are (Which are all from New Line):
Rush Hour 3
Note: I have only 1 region locked Blu-ray title ... Die Hard 4 in Region B. I tried to boot it using this trick on a PS3 region A ... but it didn't work for me with this title.
