    A companion of mine is looking at an NTSC PS3 (the shiny red one) but we need to know if buying an NTSC PS3 will present any problems for a British gamer deep in PAL territory. I'm to understand there's no region lock, so will anything actually be affected by the region difference?

    Not really, the only thing I could think of is from my experience with a PAL console, it can't seem to do 480 out, only 576, if I need to SD it (which I don't need to do anymore after upgrading my capture device). The NTSC one is probably the opposite, but it's not like TVs over here can't support 480 anyway if you need to SD it.

    I think recently a game was region locked, but I think it's a rare thing and not widespread.
