Before anyone buys a Jap PS3 be aware that some Asian and US games (supposedly region free) are not working on it.
There have also been problems with the power supply when a transformer is used. There have been a lot of early adopters with Jap PS3's trying to get units fixed at Sony over the past week. Sony has now put up large signs on the doors of service centers stating that "Parallel/Gray Market PS 3's Carry No Warranty & Will Not Be Serviced Even For A Fee"
I recommend waiting for the March '07 launch and buying a local model. If you are really impatient and must have one consider a Asian (HK/Taiwan/Sing) model instead.
the prcies are not worth it. and it still does not have a killer app.. if u really wanna buy it.. wait till it get hacked beacsue the online content isnt that great so i doubt pl will be using iy 2 much for online.. or other option wait till march april when the real kiler apps like tekken and eight days are released
