Default Eureka--US made PS3 works in India!!

I heaved a huge sigh of releif when I connected my US-made PS3 to my plug socket in India and switched it on.

It worked perfectly, and I could show the demo disc of Move to my family.

Special thanks to all those who encouraged me in the prior posts---your posts have been invaluable to me and I owe each one of you a treat. Posts in Amazon on 110V Vs 220 V for PS3 also helped, apart from a telephonic confirmation from mobike008, who has been using a US-made model in India for the past few years without any issue.

I'll try out the games and post an update after a few days---the only thing discouraging me to experiment now is the final exams lurking around for both my kids.

Owing to the price difference of around 6K when compared to India, i guess i got my 3 games free!

hello friends,
just planing to buy a gaming console, used to have a PS2 but i got it modified to play pirated cds, and within a week it got dumped, so could you please suggest which one to go for XBOX 360 kinetic or PS3 with move, both are good in their own respects,

and please also suggest me that can i play pirated cd games on any of the consoles, to save the extra bucks on games afterwards....

@rukchirtnt---my nephew bought an xbox from the US and got someone to fiddle with it so that he can play pirated games. It stopped working after a week and he was in a dilemma, as the warranty was already void.
It is better to pay more and get authorized games.

thanks for the inputs, i think you have bought PS3 Move, is it a better gaming device than Xbox kinect keeping Blue ray add ons aside.

Hmm, I have only seen a demo of the xbox Kinect at Croma 3 months ago. My BIL lives in London, therefore I could not see his kit.

If you have enough space, and dont care too much of the Blu Ray player, then xbox and Kinect may work out better for you. I heard that the games are more varied for the Xbox than for the PS3.

But that is just my opinion, based on hearsay, and not on personal observation.

I have been an xbox fan for long. Last month got the new Xbox + kinect. Here is my opinion:

1. Around 6 ft distance from TV is more than enough for playing games with kinect

2. The kinect games are excellent and engrossing for kids, with nothing required to be held in hand. Also, upto 4 people can jump in / jump out of the ongoing games and participate - with kinect their profiles will automatically be recognised, and in case profiles have not been created previously, participants will be added as guest automatically.

3. Lighting conditions should be adequate - best to have the light falls on your face and not from behind. It works fine under normal tubelights.

4. I have been seeing my son playing Kinect Sports/ Adventure / Kinectimals & daugthers more interested in learning to dance via Kinect Dance Central. Very Addictive games.

Of course, apart from Kinect, normal older xbox games can also be played if you are of the couch variety.

According to recent news, Kinect SDK is being released by Microsoft officially - so expect the kinect sensor to be used in amazing ways shortly.

Thumbs up Re: Playstation Move Vs. Microsoft Kinect

Microsoft Kinect has been recognised by Guniness World records as the fastest selling gadget ever.

You can know about the prices from the microsoft website.
Here is a link - http://www.microsoftstore.co.in/

As far as choice is concerned if you are a hardcore gamer then you may like the move since it is more accurate. The Sony PlayStation Move also comes with a blue ray player which is not the case with Microsoft- Its simply meant for games.

Moreover, Kinect is a more "healthier" option as your whole body acts as a controller; the Kinect is a much newer concept. It is more a kind of a calorie burner.

Interesting. Do you have any ideas already on what to do? Should probably start a DIY thread on this.
