If it is possible then it will give us people a big opportunity to play games based upon different regions. And yeah, many of us want to play Japanese games!

Just need to figure out a way to make it blu-ray region free, then I can buy it in Hong Kong for half the price... Just like I did with ps3. XD

Blu-ray will definitely be locked, as required by all legit players. I assume DVD will be too.

It was one of the good things about HD-DVD, no region code support whatsoever

All the games, none of the DRM fat?

Very happy about the lack of region locking. Don't mind that it looks like a Foreman grill, I've not found any of the consoles to be particularly good looking since the smaller PSX and the original Xbox.

so if this is true legit then PS4 is going to be the main system i want with the xbox one being the second to come at some point, Region Free is amazing and would give me a good reason to get some FF imports and learn japanese

Import a cheap console while you're at it. I'm not sure where you live but to import a PS4 to the UK from the US will cost £255, a near £100 discount over it's £349 retail price.

Say £30 to ship it, then £60 import VAT and £10 handling, it'll cost you the same to just go buy a UK one.
