Shipping my PS3 to singapore

Postby Average Man » Thu, 13 Jan 2011 9:19 pm

Apologies if this is in the wrong section, and if the information is freely available as I cant seem to track anything down.

I'm relocating to sing for three months from the 19th, and have found out today that my company is going to let me ship some personal Items out with me (In a box containing equipment for the office)

Has anyone previously tried to ship a PS3 from abroad into Singapore? Would it be subjected to any additional taxes/charges?

I bought the console about 2 years ago, still have the original box and receipt, so not sure if this affects anything either.

Any help/advice appreciated.
I am currently away travelling through time on business. All messages will be read upon my return last week.

No problem indeed. Side note, Singapore Blu Ray region for movies is classified as "Region A", same as US. So if you're coming from somewhere other than Region A, then buying movies in SG may not work on your PS3. Games are OK though.
    * Region A includes most North, Central and South American and Southeast Asian countries plus the Republic of China (Taiwan), Hong Kong, Japan and Korea.
    * Region B includes most European, African and southwest Asian countries plus Australia and New Zealand.
    * Region C contains the remaining central and south Asian countries, as well as the People's Republic of China and Russia.
It's common sense - if you try to come in before I go out, I can't go out. And you can't come in! Lose-lose!

Did you need to buy and adapter or converter in order to plug PS3 in the wall and use?

if you dont like adapters, i believe you can just get a new power cable. looks alot cleaner than having 100's of those travel adapters.
