P = E*I, which means it's sucking 1.27 amps, or 11.81% of my 15A circuit. You are very correct =)

Yeah, I have about 8 travel plugs for various appliances, although cell phones work quite well with them.

I left consoles a long time ago. I used to be a Sony fan with PS1 and 2 and then got a xbox and never looked back at the Playstation. I then found out about PC gaming and saw what I was missing out on. I was missing out on games with better graphics and great ONLINE gameplay, with tons of people unlike having a few dorky friends coming over to play your console and eat all your food = Boring.

With that said. I like the 360, its ok. My buddy has it I have played it maybe three times. The Wii is great I really like it but I am a graphics *****. The PS3 I have not played at all and will not put down money ever again on a Sony game console. Its not worth it. Just because Playstation has a big libarary of games from there first two consoles does not impress me. I like quality over quantity.

When I played consoles I was buying a new game atleast every two weeks atleast one. With PC I have bought like 10 games over 3 years. For me PC games keep my attention longer. I am not saying PC is teh leetness. I am saying its for me thats all.

I'm still doing some research on the data corruption. It seems to be something that can happen to all PS3 users saving games to the HDD.
That shouldn't have been an issue. Either your over current protection will trip or it won't. In theory a 15 A circuit will give you exactly 15 amps before "tripping." So it shouldn't have been the problem...but hey if it works it works.

Also finding a deticated circuit in a house is nearly impossible unless you have a custom built home or you are using a split circuit recepticle in your kitchen area or frome outside. At least thats the Canadian electrical code. You may have found a circuit with less load than what you had you PS3 plugged into but again that shouldn't have been an issue.
