Gamers Reports announces region coding for Blu-ray games

Posted at 29 December 2005 14:28 CEST by Crabbyappleton
It is impossible to verify and only one site is reporting this news. In addition, the page IT Media, is in Japanese. However, if we can believe this translation from Gamers Reports, we will see a bit of region coding for Blu-ray discs. IT Media has announced some details on the Blu-Ray region coding and it holds a nice surprise. Japan, North America, and East Asia will all be sharing one region code. This potentially means that American gamers will be able to import Japanese PS3 Blu-Ray games, and will definately be able to import Japanese Blu-Ray Anime/Movie titles without any hassle. Europe unfortunately will be sharing a region code with Africa so likely not much cross-gaming there. Sorry Europe, looks like you will be getting the gaming bone again.   Masakazu Honda @ ITMedia reports about the final review version of the AACS contents management system for HD formats such as Blu-ray Disc and HD-DVD. AACS LA consists of IBM, Sony, Toshiba, Warner, Intel, Microsoft, Matsushita, and Disney. This seems too bad that the Blu-ray camp may decide to use region coding. Such measures were hoped to be left out of this next generation of software. Source: Gamers Reports
