    PS3 rocks people, New Zealand (PAL)got PS3 today the 23rd and I have a PS3 from Hong Kong (NTSC) the new download (1.60) allows me to play PAL and NTSC games with absolute no problems, Blue Ray is still zone locked (not that I have any movies but I have many movies that I have de-region coded and they work just fine

    it depends, the asian ones have the same plugs as us and all worldwide games work, so its simple, although there are only a few asian blu ray movies in the asian region, where as there are more movies in the japan version but you would have to purchase some kind of electric convertor. personally i would say the asian one

    got mine in Kuala Lumpur ,Malaysia its an NSTC/J (so I guess Japan) strange part is that it is a 220/240 volt unit (which I need in New Zealand) yet Japan is 110v so go figure...any who works great in PAL and NTSC

    Did you successfully download the update patch (1.60)? Did it work for you?

    Did you play PAL games on NTSC or Hong Kong PS3? Did it work?

    I have checked the update patch - it said it allow NTSC/HK PS3 to play DVD PAL. But it didn't say anything about game PAL though.

    Please let me know those. I'm considering to whether to buy UK or USA or HK PS3. I'm getting confused out there which one is best one .

    Thanks
    Diego
