I've been to few sites where they have HK movies, and usually there's also a lot of reg3 dvds.

What good is it in a reg3 disc?
Compared to reg0-1-2-...?

...ahh... Hong Kong is (in) Region 3:

http://www.laserrot.com/info/lrinfo/dvdmap.html

...however, many if not most Hong Kong DVDs are Region "0" - or Region "ALL", which is the same thing

...for instance, the DVDs of Kurosawa movies released by Mei Ah are Region ALL

...however I recently bought a series of (non-Kurosawa) Japanese movies on the Hong Kong Universe label, and these are all Region 3

...incidentally, all DVDs from Region 3 (even when labeled Region 0 or Region ALL) are NTSC

Simple, ain't it?!
