Can my ps3 work in Europe? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Make sure you do a lot of research. I went to Australia and went to radioshack to get my power plug pack. They are really helpful, but do lots of searching. I ruined a lot of my electronics using adapters. MAKE sure when you go ,you have a voltage Adapter and a converter. Talk to a knowledgeable person, dont just go to the store and buy what you see. It's not worrth it, because you will end up braking something, or carrying back something broken from europe. So do your research.

ps3 uses a universal power supply. Don't get an adapter, just get a new power cable that will fit in the local outlets.

Some games have different servers for the different regions, so you may have to buy the game again if you want to play online with people closer to you. For example, the Asian, North American, and European versions of Demons Souls can't play online with each other, only with other copies from each region.

Oh ok I have these "converters" I guess that go from American to European outlets. Also I will be staying in Europe for 3 months for vacation so I need something to keep me busy. Summers are so hot there, it pretty much unbearable during noon. I wont be buying any games so that is not a problem, but I think to play NBA 2k11 you need a internet connection. Not sure though.

I would suggest not using a converter, and just using a cable with the proper plug. The converters are usually not meant to be used for more then charging your phone, unless it's big and heavy.

I've got one that my sister uses for a Japanese hair curler or something, and it's like 20 pounds. You're going to be much better off just giving the PS3 European power, and letting the power supply do the switching.

PS: It's fine if the game needs internet, it'll probably just connect to the servers back here in the USA. Expect to have a high ping, but other then that it'll work.

Oh no its not really a converter. You plug your cable on one side then the other side of it is the European outlet. Doesn't convert the voltages or anything.

Ok guys I checked out my manual on my ps3 and it says 120v and nothing about 220v which is the voltage in Europe. So its not going to work in europe?

As long as the adapter doesn't have a fuse in it or anything, it should be fine. Cables are cheap though, and would be a little neater as it'll just plug straight into the wall.

I've used those babies when I was in Russia and never had a problem with the little guys. They work great and are awesome pass-through for grounded outlets. I ran my fridge off it for a while .
