NTSC ps3 with pal
If i buy a ps3 from US i get a price difference of ~25%
But in India there are PAL tvs, dvds etc.
Is it possible to flash the ps3 after jailbreaking it so as to change the region or enable it to play PAL dvds.
Also will i be able to connect it to my PAL tv using HDMI (hdmi doesn't depend on ntsc or pal, no?)
I know that games are region free. I want to know if it will work with pal tvs and dvds.
Please answer my question fast as i have to decide whether to buy from us or India :D :-pray:
Thank you very much for your reply.
Would you suggest getting it from us (as it is 25% less cost) and forsaking dvd playback(and maybe other issues)
or getting it from india at 135$ more
ordered psjb dongle off holidaycarts on the 2/12 still got nothing off them . hong kong tracking states it left hong kong on the 6/12 for uk .. this was the 99$ one.
anyone else had long delays/no item off holidaycarts???
Whats the full price in India and the price in the US ? what about costums ? dont you need to pay some % of the product cost in taxes and you got shipping, will probably be abit.
Like in Norway, we have to pay 25% in tax if the price of the product is over 35$ if we order out side of our country
I tried to order a car audio amplifier from US once, cheapest shipping with UPS was 80$ if i remember correctly. But live far up north in Norway with polar bears and shit (im lying about polar bears)
So you have to consider the shipping prices and if you must pay costums. and add up how cheap it really gets.
In INR the price in india is Rs.25389(with a navigation controller)
in us the price is Rs.19316
In that price difference i can get a ps2 here!
The custom duty is 10% (~Rs.2000)
So I will still save Rs. 4000, but it is no use if it won't work on my tv.
Shipping including the price or ? It aint free if they are shipping it overseas keep in mind that. You probably know that.
Also, you might need a power converter as well for your US playstation 3. The US PS3 will work on HDtv, but not SD so yes it will work.
EU dvd's and blu-ray will not work on it. But games are region free and will work ofc
I live in england and I bought a Launch USA PS3, because getting it with a HDMI cable, extra controller, 3 games and a 120GB hard drive PLUS importing it was the same price as buying JUST a console over here in england.

You will not be able to play your DVD's. You cannot region-hack the PS3 at this time. So if you want to use it as a DVD and Blu-Ray player, you'll have to import your discs from the USA. Also, if you stream media from your PC to the PS3, it must be in NTSC format (standard definition only) or the PS3 will not play it (or at least mine didn't). HDMI content streamed to the PS3 is fine.
Hope that helps.
Thank you for your reply
If it can't be region hacked to play pal dvds, then maybe i won't get it from us.
Thanks a lot for the help :D
