    As per thread title really guys.

    Only they are currently doing the US 60gb machine for £360 delivered which is exactly what I'm after so I can play all those NTSC/U PS2 RPG's that were never released here & just wondered if anybody else has ordered one & recieved it ok??

    Also they say they give you a 30 day gaurantee which is only valid if you keep the same firmware it shipped with, how does the PS Store arrange update for firmware?
    Are they forced updates or can you choose??
    Only last thing I'd want is a forced update then the machine goes tits up & I cant return it because I was MADE to update from the shipped firmware by Sony.

    Just wanted to clarify before I start saving to buy one.

    Thanks in advance

    Neil

    Firmware updates are pretty much mandatory. You can't go online to play or download content unless your firmware is up to date. I would say that if you were to get a US machine then you can pretty much assume there is no warranty unless you're willing to ship it back to SCEA ( Sony US ) at your own expense.

    Thanks for that.

    It's pretty much what I expected I'm not too fussed about the warranty anyway just would have been nice to have the 30 day option incase.

    Will start the saving now then & get one ASAP :)

    Thanks again.
