It's been plugged in and switched on to test that it all works, I have set it to english language and it's had the lastest firmware update done and downloaded the GT HD, F1 and Motorstorm demos, so it's all ready to go.

In the box is the console, 1 six axis control pad, 1 AV lead (hdmi leads are not included with them), Jap Power lead (you need to get a kettle or pc monitor power lead with a 3amp fuse, it has a universal power supply so doesn't need any step down converter). 1 lan cable and a usb lead to charge the wireless controller with.

Being the 60gb version it has WiFi and memory card / stick readers built in aswell as a 60gb hard drive. You don't need a HDTV to use this, but obviously if you have an HDTV then you will get a far better picture from it.

You all know that the PS3 games are region free so it doesn't matter which version of the console you buy it will play all the games anyway.

It will only play US or Jap Blueray films tho, don't know if it will play uk dvd's but does it really matter if it doesn't ?

Anyway the machine is in the UK and collection is prefered, your more than welcome to see it running before you part with any of your hard earned cash.

It's all setup and ready to go and with the demo's on there they will keep you going untill you find some games for it.

Alternatively if you rather I can set it back to factory settings, so you can have the excitement of setting it up yourself.

OFFERS

Oh nearly forgot the reason for selling it so soon is that I asked a friend to get me 1 while he was on holiday in the states, and he told me he couldn't find any over there.

So I bought this, he got back last night and rang me to say he managed to get a couple so he has 1 for me.

So as I don't need 2 of them (read as can't afford 2 of them). This 1 is for sale.


Oh and I am in gloucestershire.

usually all consoles are region prototected and need a chip? odd that sony have done that, or is it a software upgrade that allows region free?

Playstation 3 will be region free

It has confirmed


By Nick Farrell: Thursday 23 March 2006, 13:41

SONY has confirmed that its next generation Playstation three will be region free, at least for gaming.
The outfit had hinted that the move was possible some months ago but it was only officially confirmed yesterday.

Ironically the move is designed to combat piracy. If game players can’t play imported games they tend to chip their consoles, which in turn allows pirates to release illegal copies. Illegal games also run better on chipped consoles.

The move would also enable games makers to do world-wide launches of games, particularly as Blu-Ray will mean that multiple languages can be stored on each disk.

I've accepted an offer from a member on here, and I am just off to meet him with it now.

Cheers for all the interest.

The Blu-ray player is region protected though, so you won't be able to watch UK films on it.

all blue ray dvds are multi language anyway plus its cheaper to buy them online from japan and they are relased earlier than in the uk....

personally i think it was an ok price, when they are released in the uk they will run out in the stores just as fast as the nintendo wii and then people will be paying 8-900 quid a go !

To be honest if they do go for a March launch in the UK i can`t see that many people wanting to pay stupid money for them like a Xmas launch when parents are under pressure from kids to have the latest thing. They will just wait till more are in stock. I wouldn`t mind betting a price drop in 360`s just before the PS3 launch aswell !!
