    The games are region free - but I belive your TV would need to be NTSC compatable.

    The game will work on UK PS3, but you will need a converter so it will fit your screen and display properly.

    That is incorrect. Your system language will stay the same, it is only preset when your restore the settings and when you first turn it on.

    i have a question as well to do with this, i couldn't find any thing on the forum search. I have just bought fight night round in america and i have a uk ps3, now i research it before i bought knowing that it will work when i got home.
    My question being that will the online feature still work because it is ntsc?
    if someone could please help me out because if it does i will think about purchasing an other game!

    I believe most games are region-locked for online play, meaning if you bought Fight Night Round 3 from the USA, it can only be played in North America (NTSC U/C). So you'll probably need a UK version of the game to play it online. Im not sure though, because on Rainbow Six Vegas, I've been playing with people from all over the world.

    i dont think that its locked to certain country's, u play people from all over the world. But the reason i ask this is because on the ps2 when trying to play ntsc online on a pal system it does nt work, but if the games are region free i have a feeling it will work. If anyone else nows please help out!

    Currently researching look like it will work i not 100% sure yet though any input would be help full. thank in adavnce.
