Voltage intake of the PS3 from US
I recently bought a ps3 slim (cech-2501b) from the US, and I am about to travel to Hong Kong, I know that voltage in Hong Kong is 220v. I also happen to know that the sticker outside of the ps3 is not entirely true because i have seen ifixit open one up, but that was a older model, so I am just wondering has PS3 change since?and if it did, what kind of stepdown converter do I nee, thank you very much.
Those PS3's You mention probably experianced a surge current and went belly up.
I can state that my UK PS3 [PHAT] runs on 240v at home and 115V at my workplace. There is no need to do anything to the ps3 - just make sure your kettle lead has he right plug for the socket.
It is my understanding that the slims also have this ability.
Thank you everyone for these answers. I just moved to Hong Kong and held back on plugging in my US PS3 because I heard two stories of Americans frying their PS3 with a direct plug in. It didn't occur right away, but they said after a few months their PS3 just went tits up. What do you think happened?
