PAL PS3 on NTSC TV

4 replies 465 views Edited Nov 23, 2011

Hey Guys,

Just had my PS3 shipped from Australia to Mexico and it's not working due to the fact that there are only NTSC TV's here in this house and none of them have HDMI input, I was wondering if I buy a PAL to NTSC display adapater will it work? If so, could anyone recommend a good one? Will there be any effect on how the games are displayed?

Any help with this would be great, I'm desperate to play

Just to add the TV's in the house ONLY have the AV connections with the RED, WHITE and YELLOW ports.

PAL to NTSC converter doesn't come cheap.  Thay probably cost the same as a brand new PS3.

Alternatively, a cheap monitor with HDMI input will also work.  It should cost less than a  brand new PS3.

To sum up, you looking at spending around $200 to get a PAL PS3 to wotk withj NTSC TV.

That ebay item may work.  You need to ask seller, and make sure the converter does not just chop off the top and bottom off the picture during the conversion from 576 scanlines to 480.  A good converter has a video processor inside so you won't loose part of the picture.  Good luck.
