Blu-Ray Region Codes

DQ reader Jesse Leimkuehler sent me this interesting bit of information:
The new region codes for the PS3 and Blu-Ray discs are now as follows:

Region 1: North America, South America, East Asia except for China (India, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia etc.)
Region 2: Europe and Africa
Region 3: China, Russia and other countries

This means the PS3 will be able to play Japanese import releases, and vice-versa. Also good news for Anime fans, as Blu-Ray players will be able to play Japanese anime directly on US machines.

That is a great, great idea, and long overdue.
