I'm currently serving out of country & an opportunity has come up to buy an American PS4 console. I've read that games are region free but DVDs/Blu rays aren't.
However, the question is how does the PS4 know what region it's in? I'm currently out in the Middle East but I want it to work as normal as a UK PS4 when I return. I've read that the console doesn't know what region it's in until you connect it to the web, which would be perfect as I won't connect it to the internet until I return to the UK. But if it's a manufacturing feature then I imagine only games will work.
Anybody have any idea? Thanks in advance.

If a particular batch of PS4 consoles is destined for say the UK and European market, they will be programmed to a certain code.
