anyways, im thinking about buying a ps3, well my mind is made up and im making the jump, i've got a 360 elite and im using a samsung 22" hd widescreen tv and i want to use the ps3 primarily as a pc, using ubuntu and as a blu ray player as it is the best one out there are the cheapest, and the gaming to me is an extra bonus, especially when the really good games come out.
So my question is, the ps3 here in the uk, the best offer i have seen is the 40gb, 2 games (lair and rr7) for £299. Im not bothered with the size of the drive because i will be updating this and im not bothered about the backwards compatibility because im still keeping my ps2.
But if i were to get a ps3 from japan and save a lot of money, im not new to importing as my psp is an original japanese model (psp1000) and im happy with that, but i understand that games are region free for ps3?
But my main concern is will blu ray discs from the uk run on it?
ps. not only is the ps3 cheaper in japan, im loving the white console :P
