    Moving to the UK...Question

    Okay so I might be moving to the UK for about a year for work and I was wondering how is the electrical set up there. I am assuming it is different from here in America. Am i wrong? If not, is there a specific adapter i can purchase and what other sort of things should I be aware of to play my PS3 safely.

    Thanks,

    You'll need an adapter and there easy to come by. I also think we work on a different voltage so you might want to look into power convertors as well.

    And also afaik the AC power in american outlet has a 120v output, while in european 220v is the standard (effectively melting all your electrical equipment). There are power converters in all major hardware stores, so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.
