Can anyone tell me which region this is for? Is it compatible for region A?
On the majority of the Blu rays they actually bother to label they say "dvd region 2"
Can't amazon sort it out =(

It's a simple equation that applies to DVD also: if the retailer doesn't stipulate that it is from another country/region, then it is from wherever the retailer is based.

The confusion over the new region coding has nothing to do with They are supplied with BD's from the producers and they can safely assume they will play on region B. Whether the title is region-free or not is actually up to the studio (not Sony!) so blame the bigwigs. Sony asked if they wanted region encoding, some said yes, some said no, hence the split.

There are loads of sites to tell us which titles are region free so whether or not Amazon could post the information too or not remaines to be seen (legal issues?).

The best option is to buy a region free Blu-ray player. I've had one for about a month and it plays everything. I'm not at home at the moment, and I can't remember the name of the company I bought it from. If you want to know, leave a message at

I think you'll find most blu-ray players are multi-region, so it doesn't matter. I buy loads of US blu-ray titles. That's the beauty of blu-ray!

No they aren't. The disks are - not the players. Multi-region blu-ray players (blu-ray multiregion, not DVD) are still pretty rare and expensive because they require hardware tweaks.
HD-DVD was multiregion wholesale.
