    Based on what has been said about the various cartridge elements that have been announced, I assume that the disc-based systems like PS1 will also be region-free, but I haven’t seen anything about this explicitly. Any word on whether I’ll be able to play my Japanese PS1 games on the retroblox?

    Yep, they mentioned all regions will work on it for PS1

    Region-free ok,
    But does it mean that the system will be able to read games that include security that checks the console chip before lauching ?
    Like Metal Gear Solid Integrale,  BioHazard 3 : Last Escape or Seiken Densetsu: Legend of Mana ?

     

    I own those games and i know that if you try to run them in a modified console,
    This screen will appears > http://sound.jp/art/cg/end.gif

    Same result if you tried to run them with an Action-Replay or an emulator like Xebra.

    So if it’s really region-free, it will be insterresting to know if all games are really playable or not.
