Able to use a 220volt PS3 here with 110volt?

I have a PS3 given to me while in France that is set up for 220 volts and want to play it here in the US. Is this possible? How do I make it able to run off of 110volts?

Do I need to switch out the power supply with a different one or is there an adapter that would work?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

tim, you will not need to purchase anything but the power cable from the PS3 to the outlet. This only due to the different design of the outlets. The PS3 has a a dual voltage PSU 110/220. You do not require a transformer or any other device. You definitely will not need a transformer. Get the power cord from places like this. Plug and Play....:-) Good Luck
