Dont forget shipping, that is extra plus you would have thought they would have realised by now that all PS3's have the same PSU so will work worldwide, you dont have to buy the HK version.

Been looking on ebay and the prices seem to have dropped. 20gb systems are going for about £350 delivered, which I don't think is bad. Main problem is finding someone who will take it back if it's DOA. A lot of people are saying they wouldn't want to know !

I've said as much but been called "arrogant", they may care when you get a "chargeback" with your credit card company for the item being "not fit for purpose".

to be honest best thing seller can do is test out the console for 5 minutes so he is sure he doesnt send you a dead ps3.

Hey there, bought a PSP and some accessories from them a while back, haven't really checked recently, but they were reasonably quick. I am not trusting the US PS3 for now, thinking if I am investing a few hundred pounds, I may as well get the 220V to be sure.... just my thoughts.

Why do you want a 220v so much.

It doesnt matter cause im selling a jpn version with a UK power lead and the games are redion free so it really doesnt matter.

Invest the money and have an amazing time playing it.

As soon as it arrives on your door step it puts a huge grin on your face:D and you wanna play it all day and night and for the following few weeks after.:thumbsup:

I'm the same....may be missing out on a few games, but with 360's and Wii's crashing all over the place with firmware updates, it's only a matter of time before the same problem happens with the PS3. I haven't got the money to risk it at the moment & I'm sure trying to send a non-uk spec machine back to Sony will be a laugh.

That's not to say I wouldn't risk it if I could afford the gamble.
