is it a good price at $390?
GT3 bundle makes it $430.

a friend picked one up, and has an official hack (for the Fiji R1 market) I guess.

does the Australian version suffer from lack of features (sockets etc) compared to the US or European ones?

I couldn't see a toslink socket - where is it supposed to be?

Would a US price drop also mean an Oz price drop?

Are games still $50 each?
What are the essential accessores and hwo much would they be?

I will be using it as a backup DVD player (digital receiver with component switching) in a HT.

gaming will just be a bonus, and a demo for game rentals. no one else rents games (are they able to be copied?), and hopefully it would spur PS2 sales here.

thanks for any feedback!

I don't know if you noticed it Chris, but the UK price went down to £199 (£219 with GT3) on Friday, so buying locally and getting the £20 Datel multiregion cart might be your best bet after all. Its worth noting that Australian gamers have traditionally had an even worse time than European ones for software releases, so while I don't know what region it is for games its definitely something to check first.
mmm, thats odd.
