Just bought PS3 Playstation Move 320GB today here in US PX in Afghanistan. It is a US Model (CECH-2501B) 120V, 2A,60 Hz.
This is to confirm that this unit works in 220V @ 50 Hz. My unit been plugged in for 20 minutes now and just finished the configuration and still nothing happened. If the power supply was designed only for 120 V this will not last for for than 1 sec and the fuse will blow instantly.
Here also an excerpt from the site http://www.edepot.com/playstation3.html regarding PS3 power supplies:
PS3 Power Supply
All the PS3 models have a built in universal power supply, and supports multivoltage. What this means is that even though a specific voltage is written on the outside of the PS3, the PS3 can actually be plugged into any voltage anywhere in the world and work (as long as you have the correct cable). Therefore, if you opened up the PS3, the supported voltages should be stated (on the power supply) as 100V-240V, which is the range for all power outlets in the world.
Here is a sample of some power supply model numbers:
Model Power Input (AC) Power Output (DC) Pins Weight Found In Compatibility
ZSSR5391A 100V-240V 6.0A 12V 32A 5V 3A 5 815g CECHA, CECHB A B
APS-226 100V-240V 4.8-2.0A 12V 32A 5V 3A 5 770g CECHA A B
APS-227 100V-240V 2.2A 12V 32A 5V 3A 5 900g CECHC C
APS-231 100V-240V 3.5-1.5A 12V 23.5A 5V .6A 5 700g CECHG A B E G
EADP-300AB 100V-240V 3.6-1.5A 12V 23.5A 5V .6A 3 CECHH H
APS-239 100V-240V 12V 23.5A 5V .6A 4 CECHK H K
EADP-260AB 100V-240V 3.3-1.4A 12V 21.5A 5V .6A 3 CECHK H K (Some L)
APS-240 100V-240V 3.3-1.4A 12V 21A 5.5V .9A 4 CECHL L P
EADP-260BB 100V-240V 3.3-1.4A 12V 21A 5.5V .9A 4 1-474-129-11
APS-250 100V-240V 2.7-1.2A 12V 18A 5.5V .9A 4 CECH-20xx 20xx
As seen from the above chart, the PS3 takes 100V-240V AC (Alternating Current) at various amps (A) from your power socket, and converts this to two DC (Direct Current) voltages of 12V, and 5V (or 5.5V for later PS3 models) at various amps. The earliest batch of PS3 had the ZSSR5391A power supply, which as you can see in the above table draws a lot of amps from your power outlet. You can replace it with newer compatible power supply models that draw less power, and also produce less heat. Less heat means less bending of the motherboard, less cracking of the solder, less fan noise, lower electricity bills, and no "Yellow Light of Death." In fact, for most models of the PS3, you can find a better power supply to replace the original. One of the main compatibility criteria is the number of pins on the power supply. It must match the number of pins on your connector cable. The second criteria is to try to find the lowest input amp and lowest output amp that works with your PS3 model (for APS models, this means the higher the model number, the better). WARNING: if you decide to replace your power supply, you do it at your own risk! If you don't know what you are doing, you may fry your motherboard.
