    *Very* heavy.

    It's too big with the box to go in hand luggage.

    All the innards are cardboard though, so you can flat pack it in your suitcase with the controller and leads. Then wrap the PS3 in a towel and pop it into your hand luggage. Keep your hands on it at all time! Put it under the seat in front of you.

    Exactly the way that I did it when I brought it home from Florida last year.

    Just weighed the console on its own and it is 5.1kg :eek:

    The cables and controller won't add much.

    In regards to bringing the console through as hand luggage, do you need to take it out the bag when you put it through the x-ray machines?

    I noticed when I flew to Birmingham recently that they said all large electronics like laptops needed ot be put through out of the bags.

    Thats going to be a pain as i have to do some connecting flights which means probably going back through security again.

    I didn't. It was scanned at Florida going out - guard opened the bag and took a quick look, said fine.

    No checks at Manchester whatsoever.
