Buying a PS4 in another country

#1 Edited by JasonJones55 (6 posts) -

Hey guys...

I am going to the USA in June for my birthday and i live in South Africa... the PS4 is really

expensive here some shops are selling it for R7200 which is equivalent to $750 so i want to buy one while im over there but i dont know if it will work back here in SA...

Does anyone happen to know if it will work here in my country or not?

Thanks :)

Yes it will work I got my ps4 when I was in Australia and now I'm in Romania, just make sure if it's a 110 or 220 volt as I think the US version come in 110 volt.

Yea, they are region free, so consoles work anywhere, any game on any console also.

Erm, I don't think you will have any issues either connecting to your PS Store, so that should be fine.

Just double check with South African law on customs & excise duty or tax, whatever lol.

In UK we can bring items up to the value of £390 before paying any duty or tax.

I think SA is about ZAR10,000, so you should be fine, hope I got my conversions and currency right, and customs laws lol.

That makes me think a bit.

It'll work, you may need a power converter though.

Do people not know how to use the Internet or something?

https://support.us.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5211/~/ps4%3A-voltage-specifications

The US PS4 uses 110v at 60Hz, South Africa uses 220v at 50Hz, you would need a voltage converter, a universal adapter WONT work, it will just ruin the PS4.
