I'm confused. If you bought a USA PS3 because USA BDs are cheaper... where's the problem?

And that second paragraph, per forum rules, isn't something allowed to be discussed here.

First thing you will need is a very small screwdriver - the kind you get for eyeglasses.

Next, you forcefully insert the screwdriver into.....oh wait sorry. I'm thinking of something else.

I don't believe it has been done yet.

I think he wants to make it region free for standard DVDs. He has Region 2 SD DVDs, but he can't play them in a Region 1 player. The Blu-rays wouldn't be an issue really because very few have region encoding enabled.
