Rep for anyone that helps to answer these...

1. Yep, just use a UK kettle lead

2. Yep, you can set up multiple accounts (I've got UK, US and HK on my UK PS3).

3. I believe its the game that determins this, so if you have a UK game, you'll be fine..

4. Don't know, but wouldn't have thought so

5. Never bought from there, so can't comment.

Just be careful that you'll have no warranty, and if you have any problems you'll have to send it back to Japan or HK (at your cost) to be fixed

Thats cool. But remember you will get charged at least 17.5% ontop of the £263 the console is selling for on the site.

Thanks REP added...!
on 3 thanks Unhappy on 3, so will still HAVE to buy UK game for UK friends (or start up a JAP HOT DEALS website to meet new persons)

And also ya may be charged for import duty and VAT at 17.5%..which could hike the cost of the PS3 more...I would honestly just buy a UK model.

yeah, why not just pay £17 extra for the UK model. You'll make that back when you come to sell it as jap ones have a far lower resale value?

Not to mention the lack of warranty and the chance of getting stung by import duty and VAT which will add about £80 to the price :w00t:
