    Sadly, grey-market PS3s dont have warranty. these are sold thru ToyKingdom, DataBlitz, in Greenhills and in other malls near you.

    Atleast we have locally released PlayStation games like PSP and PS3.

    Philippines will have its own PSN Store and others to make it like the US/EU/JP/HK counterparts

    Pros:

    Locally released games (not made but locally purchased)
    Local PSN store
    Awesome Warranty

    Cons:

    I have no idea if the PS3 are more expensive than the one being sold in DataBlitz
    No PS3 fat

    It is rumored that PS3 are being sold as Php14,xxx or Php19,xxx or the worst case scenario of Php 21,xxx above

    Woah, that's $305 to $475 CAD. That's expensive (for right now at least).
    I don't remember if the Phils had their own console made specifically for their region (I went there, there were US PSPs, JP Wiis, AUS Xbox 360s, etc).

    It's a sign that Sony is supporting Philippines by locally releasing their gaming consoles.

    WHere's Nintendo and Microsoft? I dont see anything except for grey products from them.

    Too bad we're leaving and cant buy Filipino released PS3. T_T

    I was planning to buy my own PS3 and Im happy it's made FOR Philippines

    I'm also pretty sure there's no console that supports Tagalog by default. This is a first.

    I was wondering if it's locally made or locally distributed.

    If anyone who can buy a locally sold PS3 slim may want to update us with the language since Sony PH will have its own Philippine PSN store.

    reminds me of Nintendo Korea where the consoles and games are late except for Pokemon and some games

    Why can't we get fun promotions like this here in the US. Still the PS3 in the Philippians is a bit too expensive compared to the US and Japanese prices.

    WHY DOES GLORIETTA HAVE TO BE SO FAR!? But I'm pretty skeptical about this...no one really buys PS3s over here, so support could seriously suck.



    And last, but DEFINITELY not the least, THEY BETTER BE WAY CHEAPER. The cheapest one I've seen so far, pre- PH release, is a 16k slim in Alabang Town Center.

    Hopefully the price will drop in a few weeks then sales would increase.

    NTSC is supported in the Philippians.

    NOTE: From now on, Imported PS3 and other merchandised will be referred to as Grey products and Officially licensed products will be referred to as OFFICIAL PS3 and products.

    Grey PS3 is Php 18,000 in Rocksoftonline http://www.rocksoftonline.com/playstation-...lack-p-341.html
    but it's Php 14,xxx in Datablitz and in Greenhills

    Official PS3 has not yet confirmed but if you visit their Official stores, their TVs and other merchandise are a hell lot expensive than grey TVs and others.

    psn seems like a better option than a specific ps3
    the idea here is tht they have actually thought of this idea seems tht ppl are getting impressed by sony gaming products which in the past seemed like trash
