abdulaziz,you should not have to use a transformer at all. the power supply in the PS3 Slim have universal power supply to be able to operate 100-240V 50/60Hz. All you may need is a power cord from the power supply to the electrical outlet.

Have you actually taken a look at the inside on your power supply? Just make sure, it is not uncommon to have it labelled on the outside for the origin country. I have not heard of Sony using separate power supplies for different countries, but anything is possible. Anyway, instead of buying a transformer, get a power supply for the 110V they are easily available and not a bad price http://www.thegamersfix.com/product.php?... Are you sure yours won't work on 110???:-)

I just plugged mine in after shipping our stuff from the UK to Canada and it works.

The label says 220-240v and it just works.
