    it sucks that the u.s. ps3'ers get all these nifty downloads... the ninja gaiden demo, ps1 games, and some other crap that we don't.

    but fear no longer! i created a new account and said i was in california, and presto, i now have access to ps1 games and the Ninja Gaiden demo (which rocks by the way).

    the only problem i had was getting my ps3 to accept my address, so i put in:

    1 whatever street
    Beverly hills
    California
    90210

    go now my pretties! fly!

    I did something similar with the 360 until MS took away the ability to download materials from other regions. Let's hope that Sony doesn't follow the same path.

    but of course, NTSC content won't play on PAL TVs. If you have an HDTV, thats no problem, but if you don't, you're screwed.

    We generally don't have that problem in this part of the world, I haven't had a main TV without NTSC support in about 15 years.

    I've not bought anything from the U.S store yet - will it accept a card with a non-U.S. billing address?

    Got as far as confirming the amount to be added to the account without it raising any objection, so it seems like it works.

    If nothing else, there should be a bigger selection of freebie demos than we have here (so far).

    there are indeed. armored core 4 and ninja gaiden are 2 of the most obvious. the store also has al ot more theatrical trailers too, including an extremely high def version of the transformers ad, and the potc3 too.

    Welcome to America smang!!

    A lot of US gamers have made Japanese, and Korean accounts because they sometinmes get cool stuff before the US. Looks complicated to me since I can't read the writing.

    Congrats on beating the system, I didn't even know you had the PS3.

    If your interested in doing some MK2 online add me. PSN is pscoop.

    Online kicks ass. If both people have a good connection then there is like no lag. For 5 bucks too! I should get motorstorm, been to busy with Resistance online and Oblivion.
