I wonder if this means NTSC and PAL formats as well.

Yes, it supports both NTSC and PAL, as do some other players; but it is the first to be region-free. I can't believe they got this past the BD licensing group. Right now most titles are region-free anyway; but that could change in the future.

The Oppo Digital DVD players have traditionally been Region-Free.....anyone know if the new BDP-83 blu-ray dvd player from Oppo will also be region-free? Gosh, I hope so. I'm anxious for it to be released to market hopefully later this month.

The new Oppo Blu-Ray player will not be region-free. In order to be licensed for Blu-Ray, they had to agree to not allow region-free playing on this unit. Momitsu, on the other hand, is a Chinese company and many of those companies ignore licensing issues.
