I know there is region free BR consumer player (yes there is), but not for computer.

Anyway for computer, the OS also comes into play, unless you have a BR player program that does not require the drive to be set to a region and can skip the checking of region like what VLC can do for DVDs... As far as I know VLC don't do very well with BRs.

PS3 is also region coded, usually its region1 for local set. Same as USA & Japan.

You can see the BD region guide line before purchase any BD.
Singapore consider region A same as US.
http://www.blurayregioncodes.com

Europe & Australia consider region B.
If you bought the PS3 in spore only can play BD with region A.
You can read more at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blu-ray_Disc

For normally BD player not sure if can play region A,B,C :think:

TS... are you looking for a BluRay Player (for TV in the livingroom) or BluRay Rom (put inside PC) ?? :think:

If its for the PC.... get any one you could afford, use AnyDvD HD to hack the software that sets the region on the PC.

I am looking for both actually, anyone that can be region free.

Games are region free, movies are not.

get the oppo bdp-83, not sold locally officially but there's one shop in SLS that import and sell them, there's also recurrent MO at xtremeplace

but its a bit pricey though, if you want something cheaper can try the sherwood bdp-5004 from amazon us http://www.amazon.com/Sherwood-BDP-5004-Blu-ray-Player-Black/dp/B002AQ51VK which is what Im using right now

need to use vpost/borderlink/tarazz though since they dont ship directly to SG

Thanks sandyph on the Sherwood, looks good! I knew about the Oppo one but the crazy price really put me off.

Well, they do have another lower version BDP-80. I believe SLT is the distributor here, so it should be considered official - no?!?. As far as i know the 2 companies are in contact with each other, especially in terms of support as well.
