lolWouldnt recommend this.It's common with other appliances, but for something which uses a lot of power/has a tendancy to overheat + is f*ck*ng expensive, use the correct fuse.All it means is that either your wire will burn up first, or your PS3 will fry when the fuse doesn't blow and restrict the current its supposed to.They're like 50p anyway.

Technically it will work but the overload protection won't be there so chances of frying the appliance is HIGH. So if you want to just use it to test go ahead. But wouldn't recomend using the wrong Ampere

this.the whole point of a fuse is to protect against surges. if theres a spike in the amount of electricity, the fuse breaks (costs 20p), as opposed to breaking the ps3 (£300)
