Small rant upcoming. So, I purchased a PS3 in Panama for use in Costa Rica (my other PS3 will not play NTSC encoded discs), and then purchased a couple of DVDs (The Social Network and 300). I get home and eagerly install the equipment only to discover that the DVD player is encoded to Region 4, and that it won’t play the Regiuon 1 DVDs I just purchased.
Dear film industry,
Cumbersome and illogical region encoding encourages piracy.
