Blu-Ray Region Coding

This is annoying…

The region codes for Blu-Ray have been announced (you can ignore the comment about PS3 games at the bottom because it’s not gonna happen) and Japan has been changed to a region 1 territory, the same as North America, as opposed to the region 2 that it was for DVD. That means for now the only imports that we’re going to be doing are from Africa, that great cinematic paradise.

While American anime fans are no doubt rejoicing, we’re probably going to be heading back to the dark days where piracy was the only way to get hold of all but the least obscure stuff. Here’s hoping that Blu-Ray region codes are as easy to bypass as DVD ones.
