When I use to go back and forth from Hawaii and Colorado I would always carry my ps3 on the plane with me. What I did to carry it was I bought one of the carrying cases that you can find at any gamestop or EB games. I know it might seem like something bulky and heavy but once your on the airplane it easily fits in the overhead bins. And plus the carrying case that I bought doesn't say ps3. It says GPAK. So it just looks like another carry on bag.
thank you all for responding. i really appreciate all of your responses. yeah i am thinking that i should carry it on with me on the plane instead of dispatching the bag. i did see those GPAK bags, i actually have one of those for my fat ps2.
but does anyone know if they will let me take that in a US airline? because a while back after the 9/11 attack they were makign everyone dispatch their electronics, including ipods.
i should call the airline too.... just in case huh?
by the way i will be moving from the US to Brazil.
Well when I went they never bothered me about it. I declared it as a laptop. I have been through security with it about over 8 times at 3 different major airports and they never asked me to open it. Most major airplanes dont ask to open your laptop bags anymore as they do a new test where they take a swab and rub your bags with it and feed it into a machine that gives a readout of what kind of chemicals and materials the bag contains. If they see anything suspicious then they will ask to open your bag.
