If you plug an electrical appliance with a 2 prong plug into a power board that has a 3 prong plug, does it ground the electrical appliance?

If a plug has only 2 connection points then it cannot be used to ground an appliance - whatever you connect it to.

It is a PS3 game console. It only has a 2 prong plug. I want to plug it into a power board that has a 3 prong plug.

Will that make any difference than plugging the PS3 straight into the wall?
