    As per the title, does anyone know if any discs so far have utilized region coding?

    Cheers,

    Like Marek stated they've already divided up the regions for Blu-ray but since there are no players or software yet in a different region (like in Europe) I honestly don't know if it's been implimented on the current movies. I guess once they release in Europe we'll be able to find out.

    All current Sony releases, at the very least, have the Region A logo on the back of the art, so it has been implemented on those.

    Every BluRay disc press starting this fall get's the region encoding....

    Some may already have it....

    HD has yet to follow the region program... but time will tell...

    Yes, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the disc itself was pressed with region-encoding. Every game for Sony's PSP has a region logo on the back of the case, but none of those have any region-lock whatsoever.

    They could be printing those just to say that the discs are intended for the Region A market.

    Jeff there is really nothing new in that article concerning region coding for HD DVD. We all know that most studios want region coding. It's already known that the DVD Forum was studying region coding for HD DVDs and that it might be implimented in the future.

    I'm not trying to be agrumentative so please excuse me if my tone is so. Just busy at work.
