    If I can play multiregion movies on a PS2, would I also be able to play games from different regions?
    Are games released everywhere at the same time in different regions?
    Would the remote also work in different player versions (US/Oz)?
    thanks.

    There are two sets of region protections in the PS2 unfortunately - DVD & games. They're seperate - there are solutions available for DVD, but not for game protection.
    So, a multiregion DVD PS2 will not necessarily play foreign games.

    And for the most part, games are released in different regions at different times, and some games are not released everywhere.

    DO NOT trust the chips that claim to mod PS2 for game playing. that are out there right now. They do NOT work properly, and I've heard of systems frying because of them.
    Sony may actually have come up with a system that works this time. I just wish that they'd be able to make some games Region 0, stuff that will never make it out of Japan could be played on all systems that way
