Yes it will work just fine and be able to play any and all ps3 games and blu ray disks. However, you will not be able to play canadian (ntsc) coded dvds and ps2 and ps1 games because the region coding of the spanish pal ps3 is not compatible with north american dvds.

Can I purchase a ps3 game in europe and will play on a ps3 system from the USA


Yes, PS3 games in blu-ray format will work.
However, pay attention to this small detail: If you plan on buying or downloading DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT (DLC), you'll need an European account on your ps3 (create one and fill it with information from Europe) in order to be able to use them.
If you just want to play the game and not worry too much about the downloadable content and all those kind of extra stuff you can get for the game, go ahead!
PS: If you want to test the fact that it truly works with your current setup, create that european account on your ps3 and download some european demos. You'll have your compatiblity answer resolved instantly.

My ps3 wont play europ movies


Movies use a Region code. For North America we use the NTSC configuration which allows 30 frames per second and the European code is PAL which limits it to 24 frames per second, while the difference is minimal, US DVD players cannot read Europe's DVDs and they can't read ours.

Ps3 power


Try and find a better/different adapter, maybe one the is specific for the PS3 or gaming in general. Don't use one of those universal ones, could fry your PS3.

Not sure what kind of outlet/plugs you guys have out there (I'm in Canada, eh) but I've provided a couple of links that should help you out. Personally, NYKO is a great choice, quality stuff and they have lots of accessories for the PS3.

Due to the volt difference; Europe (220v) vs. Canada & US (110v)
you MIGHT also need a power converter. Check the console, it will probably be able to handle 110v-220v but double check to be sure. I have heard all kinds of answers and opinions about it but best to check your PS3 yourself. If it odesn't support both voltages then you will also need to get a power converter.
