I am not sure if US format is the same thing as a region. If it is then you might want to ask son number 5 at Sim Lim if your DVD player is multi region - most of those sold in Singapore are.

most of the DVD players available at sin lim are multi region - that is, they play a dvd from any region - the chip has been changed - it's the first question I ask when buying a dvd player as I have a collection of Region 1 DVD's that I need to be able to play.
