    I want to buy a ps3 from the usa but I will take it in Europe. I would like to know if the games are region free because they told me that are coded to region 1.What happens with ntsc and pal. Is there a converter or something

    Last I heard all PS3 games at the moment are region free, but blueray films are region coded.

    As far as NTSC and PAL is concerned, so long as your tv is reasonably new it should have no problem with either signal.

    Your main problem would be that the US is 110v and most of Europe including the UK are 240v supply. You would need a step down transformer to power a US machine on a 240v mains supply.
