    hi, as the ps3 hits the uk in march is anyone intending to buy from usa?
    i think the price will fall for the usa console (especially on ebay!)!
    the choice of bd films from usa is much wider and the best titles come out a lot earlier.
    also the pq is supposed to be better!
    if so anyone know of any companies where you can buy a usa player from?

    :thumbsup:

    my budget for blu ray is £300!:(

    You will find that once the UK release there consoles ps3`s from the US will increase in price on ebay too. Its looking more like a later release date than march but we will have to wait for sonys official announcement.

    I have a jap PS3 right now. To be honest Im a bit dissappointed with it, I have resistance of man and jap motorstorm hmmm its good but no better than a 360, I would presume the games will get better but anyway I digress....friend of mine works for Sony development and he said to me that it looks like Europe will be delayed again until Septemeber due to supply problems and glitches found in the PS3 hmm sounds encouraging NOT...not official of course but probably sometime in february we may get the bad news.

    dvdboxoffice.com
    playusa.com
    movietyme.com
    dvdworldusa.com

    Playusa and Movietyme are probably the cheapest and most reliable. I haven't used DVDworldusa before so can't comment on them.

    If that is true then Sony Europe's management team may as well all line up
    at Trafalgar square naked with Xbox 360 controllers up their Jacksies!

    I'm happy with my 360 but surely Sony can't fail to deliver in March, the customer can only be pushed too far, their credibility in Europe* would disappear for the next 10 years maybe?

    I think the UK release might actually be earlier than many think, but that is really down to the poor demand / sales compared with predictions. More inteested in US model personally.

    I'm only going to get a PS3 if I can get a US one from somewhere. I'm after on more for R-A BD playback than for games, so a UK one wouldn't interest me.
