    For my current project I plan to gut an original PlayStation and replace the internals with a Raspberry Pi and some other goodies. My original plan was to use a 110VAC to USB adapter but after researching the PlayStation's PSU I think that wild serve well as a power supply for the Pi. the PSU outputs 7.6VDC so I need to drop the voltage to 5v. What kind of regulator would be best and how do I wire it? currents are in the 0.2A-1A range.

    LM7805 would be the generic go to... A few caps and a LM7805 and you are golden, no heat sink needed for a TO-220 package in this application...
