I am going to NY next month and am thinking of buying a PS3 while over there. Does anyone know if they are fully compatible with the games, blu-ray discs and hardware over here?

Thanks in advance for your help

As far as I am aware the games are region free, but the blue ray movies are region encoded.

Yes, blu-ray games are compatable.

blu-ray disc films are not.

PS2 games will not be compatable unless they are NTSC games.

all other hardware should be fine.

Yes...

need to check your voltage as well. The US operates off 110v system, so the power unit will need a European transformer to go with it.

*Sigh* The PS3 has an auto-switching power supply (I use a jap one in the UK) so no transformer is required. Over 60% of blu-rays have no region encoding on them, but I buy all my Blu-rays from america anyway, as they are much cheeper.
Unless you want to play uk ps2 games (and the new ps3's can't play ps2 games anyway...) an american ps3 would be a good idea. :thumbsup:

I am assuming all games are blu-ray then, yes?

About 60% of US blu-Rays are region free, and therefore cheeper to import than to buy here (for thos with a UK Ps3. People with a Jap/US Ps3 can buy ANY bluray from amerca/japan.

PS3 games from ANY region will work on ANY Ps3 console. Clear?
