Hey guys, I bought some blu rays from the amazon UK store since they were filthy cheap. I threw the disc in and got a "Mismatch between disc and player region codes. See packaging for details"
Will I be able to play them on my PS4? I'm in North America (Canada) and really don't wanna be screwed here lol.
Does a PS3 play these kinds of blu rays?
Thanks in advance for the help.

PS4 Blu Ray Playback Region Locked?
Yes, it is region locked for Blu-ray movies.

Was it region locked last gen?
Didn't know that. The more you know. lol
The kicker is the region coding for the discs though. You can have a disc that will play on a region A, B, C, or all three, etc.

I have a Harry Potter 8-Film collection on Blu Ray that I got from Amazon UK and it ran perfectly on my PS3, have yet to try on my PS4 though.
There's just too many variables to deal with really. Even IF you buy a Region A bluray movie, it might be coded to play on any freakin' bluray player lol. Just never know really.
Thanks for all the help guys, ended up working out for me for the most part. Purchased the Breaking Bad Barrel from the UK store and the 2 hour documentary disc didnt work, but all other discs are loading completely fine. Strange that only the one disc stops me from watching but overall it works thank goodness
Just a couple quick comments.
1.) Every BluRay device/player is required to be region locked period for the playback of BDs (sure you can break the region locking with FW on some, but I'm just stating the requirment agreement to be a BluRay player.) Sony's not going to break this. Many aren't region locked from the factory, but you select your region the first time you attempt to play a BD. Some allow for the region to be changed (usually up to a maximum of 5 times to prevent people from just changing it back and forth forever.)
2.) As mentioned it's up to the maker of the BD's as to what region locking (if any) they do. And often times they don't actually region lock them.
Yeah, I imported a few copies of Transformers The Movie on BD and that was region free. Very nice transfer. I have no movies explicitly Region B to test though.
