I think I blew up the PS2 I ordered.. I was so excited that I was finaly gonna play Ico, that without thinking, plugged my "new", american PS2 with 120V.


And since in EU it's normally 240V, well...


But I didn't get to power it, it only flashed red for a second and faded right away. Could it be it's still alive?

i'm afraid not


I did that to my master system in 1990! Our mains are 220v, i set it to 110v for travelling, forgot to switch back, say goodbye, but maybe you'll just have to buy another power adapter

I had something like that with my EEE. AFAIK some devices will stop working until the correct charger is used, that's what it was like for me.

If the PS2's transformer is internal, rather than in its power-supply, it will just go boom, though. :p

Random thought: There's a 'probably bs' thing/rumor going around that M$ are to announce their new console at e3 next month to try steal the thunder from Nintendo. True or not, exciting times ahead for us. :)

I heard a rumor that someone found out what graphics the PS4 will have, which sounds pretty damn hardcore!


The PS4 will use the PowerVR Series 6 graphics card by Imagination Technologies. This graphics card is suppose to be 3 to 5 times better than a competitive level nVidia/ATI graphics card. The PowerVR card is also the same size and price as a nVidia card. Hopefully, gamers won’t have to wait long to find out if this rumor is true.

And they will whisper softly in your ear "We do everything".


Playstation 4 - We do everything

after the ps3, sony pretty much murdered my love for their products.. So I'm not really expecting much more than an overpriced, powerful machine, lacking a lot of soul.

^ On your Pandora? If yes, try rebooting. That happened to me once after unplugging and re-plugging the charger to move elsewhere, and a reboot fixed it.

Fixed it by putting it in low power mode (and then connecting power.) Didn't want to reboot since I was in the middle of a *big* compile.
