USA Playstation3

Do you know if there is any detrimental effect to the PS3 if bought cheaper in the US and used on our power in the UK? Is the power cable just a lead thats easy enough to replace with a UK one?

I bought a battery charger in NYC and used it on a converter plug over here which worked fine for a few months then it blew up out of the blue. Just wondering if our power would shorten the life of the console. If so, I'd rather pay the extra for a UK spec one. Can't see past the cheapness of USA though - not fair!!!

You'll probably get stung on custom charges anyway if you imported one in.......

You won't need a power convertor for it, the only difference is that it won't play some UK bluray or any UK PS1/2 games.
