    Google has returned nothing but vague answers and stupidity.

    Just wondering if anyone has intimate knowledge of the region workings of the PS3 (60GB model). From what I can tell it's not possible to play a NTSC region PS2 game on a PAL PS3. It also seems as though the PS3's DVD playback is region locked. PS3 games are region free. Bluray is about 70% region free but Australia and the UK are in the same region. It seems as though you should be able to play any PAL region PS2 game on any PAL PS3 console. Just looking for some verification on this.

    PAL is PAL. It will be fine.
