Even among Multi-region players there are some that can play ALL region and some that can play MOST region so it is worth a check with the sales guy.
I just recently bought a Philips DVP3880K which the sales guy claim can play ALL regions. So far I've played Region 1, 2, 3 and 6 without any problem.
The companies you mentioned will only sell region specific players... that is how it works.
I believe I bough all together like up to 10 dvd players from HN, courts and such and with one exception all of them were region free. They are hacked locally and aparently it is a part of the sales package even for the retail chains like these.
