PS3 Plays US and Japan

As reported by Gamer Scan, Sony has announced that the Blu-Ray player in the PlayStation 3 will put North America and Japan into the same region code for movies, effectively giving viewers from one region the ability to watch movies from the other without requiring special hardware. It's still uncertain as to whether or not the loosened restrictions on movies will equate to a similar change for games, though Nintendo has set a precedent by eliminating regional codes altogether on DS titles. HD DVD players are also rumored to see restrictions lifted in the near future.
