Hi everyone,

A friend of mine is thinking of buying a PS3 from Play-Asia.com

Our only concern is the voltage of the PSU. I've vaguely seen someone saying that the power supplies off these units (Imported from Japan) are multi voltage.

I know the PSU's on the units sold here are only 220 - 240 rather than 110 - 240, so I'm a little worried.

Can anyone confirm the voltage of the Japanese/Play-Asia.com PSUs?

From what I have been told, they are all multi voltage. BUT they do not say that on the unit.

Eg, I had a PS3 which stated that it was 110v only, and yet it worked here plugged into a NZ socket.

There are a surprising number of region free blu-ray disks though. Even if they say they are region locked, sometimes they actually aren't.

Some games are also a bit finnicky about what sort of console they are on with regards to online play. Just a select few have issues (they only allow you to access games in the region the console was made for, or the game was made for, or just not letting you get online at all).
