    Hi

    Can anyone tell me how much a PS3 costs in Australia?

    Also, can you play UK PS2 games on an Australian PS3?

    Cheers.:smashin:

    I will take a guess and say you can play UK games on an AUS PS3 - the reason I say this is RFOM has the option to play online either with AUS/NZ or EUROPE. So I presume this game and others are the same region for UK/AUS.

    Seach the WWW (e.g. Amazon) for prices


    SORRY: MISS READ QUESTION - you asked about PS2 games!

    PS3 retails for AU $999 (pretty much £400)

    I think you'll be OK playing UK PAL PS2 games on an Australian PS3 machine.

    Not sure if they still do this but..

    I bought my PS3 at EB. It traded my PS2 and 10 games and got it for $598. Deal of the century if you ask me!

    I hope this helps.
    Cheers

    Australia is the same region for console games so all UK games PS2 and PS1 will work. PS3 games are region free anyway but if they weren't then again UK games would still work. Just to add Australia is Region 4 for DVD's so UK DVD's will not work. For blu-ray it is region B just like the UK.

    There was a store here in Perth selling the 60GB PS3 for AU$799 up until yesterday. Not bad considering that is less than cost. As stated earlier most if not all current PS3 games are region free. Ps2 games will also work with it. Only thing not sure is SD DVD.
