Aussie...region4dvd...ACCC?--->reviewing?
« on: December 25, 2000, 07:32:48 AM »
Is there any aussie here? i heard some where in the news on TV couples of days ago that ACCC is reviewing the region4dvd system....i heard that it might be abolished...

If it happened, will sony offered us a free mods for the ps2...? well it\'s unlikely?

Haven\'t heard that one before but I believe it would not be possible . There are that many DVD players out there that only support region 4 .So if it were true ,the ACCC board would be fired and a new board would bring region 4 straight back .
It would be a consumer nightmare . The ACCC couldn\'t possibly be that dumb .

On web pages selling the ps2 in Oz, it states that the PS2\'s DvD firmware is upgradeable. So it looks like they can improve on it.

If so they could just release a firmware update on cd and correct the region issues.

That would be sweet.
I met him 15 years ago, I was told there was nothing left, no reason, no concious, no understanding and even the most rudamentory sense of life or death, good or evil, right or wrong, I met this 6 year old child with this blang pale emotionless face and, the blackest eyes, the devils eyes, I spent 8 years trying to reach him, and then another 7 trying to keep him locked up because I realised what was living behind that boys eyes was purly and simply evil.

well, if i\'m not mistaken, i just remember that i heard the news from "Sky News Australia(Foxtel)"...it said something about paying extra money...and it is not fair...cause most of  everyone that bought dvd get it modified...
and also it was mention something not fair for dvd movies collector...

well...if the dvd firmware is upgradable...it will be a big relief... :D
