Does anyone know if a PS2 bought in the USA is able to be played in Europe? If so, would a regular converter work or would I need something more sophisticated?
I dunno. There should be no problem playing it as long as you had the right power converter. But I dunno about games though. I'm not sure if games are like DVD's and locked ot a region.
As stated above - the only problem would be the power connector.
As long as you get NTSC games for your system - it should work in Europe. However, f you buy games there (PAL versions), I doubt they will work in the NTSC PS2 system that you have.
Hope this helps.
Regarding the power, be careful I don't recall if the PS2 is multi-voltage or not. If it is, you just need a plug adapter. If not, you need a transformer. Most European and Eastern countries (with the exception fo Japan IIRC) are on 220v mains. If you plug 110v US device into a 220v mains and the power supply isn't built to support it... enjoy the smoke, noise, and pretty lights! ;)
