US Playstation 2, power supply...

Got an American PS2 (cuz they get all the decent games before Europe, Final Fantasy XII and Okami for example) just wondered what the power supply runs at here in Switzerland? In the UK to use my PS2 I had to have a step down converter to stop the UK power blowing it up, I am using the same converter here but it does get very hot, to be honest i cant remember if it got that hot in the UK or not.

Hi Lob

How and where do I get this mod chip in CH?

Is it difficult to do? Well, I mostly buy region 2 (eu) coded games from Play.com anyway, not a cost issue, rather a technical project...
Soldering needed?

If I kill my current PS2, I can always buy a new one (cheap at 188chf) or wait for ps3, a great reason to buy it then...

Currently playing the ultra violent GTA3: Liberty City Stories...

FYI: The heat comes from the different frequency of the AC input (50Hz Europe, 60Hz USA)
