The PS3 is Region Free (for the mean time anyway ).
I have a Hong Kong PS3 (BluRay Region A, Game Region 3, DVD Region 3).
My Hong Kong version of Genji 2 is Region 3. WORKS
My Japanese version of Sonic is Region 2. WORKS.
The NTSC PS3s will play ALL NTSC games (US, JAP, HK, etc). It won't play PAL/SECAM games/DVDs, because it does not currently support PAL/SECAM signals (tested by me with a Region 0 PAL DVD).
By the looks of it, PAL PS3 games are going to play PAL games only (they announced that PAL regions will be locked to PAL games, as PAL/NTSC signals are different).
BTW Maj. Jaq@ss, here in the UK, there ARE PAL HD signals (720p/50, 1080i/50 and 1080p/50). 480i/p is NTSC (60) and 576i/p is PAL/SECAM (50).
Hope this clears up any confusion...
