Ben1054  +   2249d ago

Completely stupid
that when trying to sign into messenger it only gives you the option to have '.com' at the end. I cant sign in because mine is '.co.uk'

i knew em all except the 1st one.
sunnygrg  +   2248d ago
I didnt know that.
the Xbox Live Vision camera was compatible with the PS3.
PirateThom  +   2248d ago
The PS3 is compatible with a huge variety of third party items.

The Vision Cam is just a standard webcam.
JUSTICEFORALL  +   2248d ago
is the xbox vision still compatible with the ps3?
bleachrulez  +   2249d ago
yeah must
of as should know this feature but the one for xbox cam is something i didn't expect

I found out..
By asking a fellow to a live chat after a round of CoD4, and he said he didn't have a cam for PS3, just one for 360. I already knew he was using a 360 headset so I suggested giving it a try. It worked, man we had a good laugh.

As for the article, it's alright. Probably very helpful for the less tech savvy people.

I have yet to try MSN mobile for instant messaging via PS3 browser, might try now, or maybe check meebo. I knew of the rest of them already.

I had nothing to do for my PS3 to detect my Windows Media Sever, all automatic for my first boot up...
I was very impressed to see all my content with a Wi-Fi connection (videos, photos and music) without do anything =D
Very Very nice feature

try meebo then tell me no way lol
as yet there is no way to access Yahoo or AOL instant messaging networks via the PS3's browser.

Simply click on the link with the X button and the PS3 will automatically offer to save it directly into your Music folder, ready to be played at any time.

Ive been able to do that isnce I got my ps3! thios isnt new!

I do wish the PS3 manual was better
I honestly don't understand half of the stuff written in it about the DVD settings tbh ...
Name Last Name  +   2249d ago
i didnt know bout the msn one i connected to hotmail from it and it appeared like if i was connected from a mobile do someone know if its free too?

The true multi media device that plays games, music, DVDs, Blu Rays, act as HDD, plays MMOs and lets you communicate with your friends.

Its a social device where you can browse the web, upload user created content (LBP), watch YouTube vids, download stuff and more.

This is living. This is PS3.

awesome tips!
RAM MAGNUMS  +   2249d ago
thank you. Love this stuff!
please keep the tips, tricks & hints coming!
I didn't know about the music player?!?
so cool.
RAM MAGNUMS  +   2249d ago
don't know? But facebook.com is ps3 compatible.
That's why more people need to know about this kinds stuff!
so we can have more ps3 compatible websites.
I think it will all come together when HOME is established.
if konami can have its own store & its own home space.
the intergration of the browser will make home a shopping mall!
I can't wait!

Here is the top tip....
Wait for the ps4 with more ram and a faster blu-ray drive.
ThatCanadianGuy  +   2249d ago
but PS3 and 360 have the same amount of ram?
You saying 360 needs more ram to? hopefully when "720" comes.

And installs make up for the -4% disc read speed of blu-ray.

You fail.

This is nothing new by a long shot, DVD up-scale seriously?
dolomite  +   2248d ago
I didn't know about the saving web files feature...since surfing the web via PS3 is a pain. I always used the Wii for that if I wanted to do surfing on the TV. However, I thought the DVD upscale was automatically done for you? Didn't know you had to set it on...
Fototherapist  +   2248d ago
I assumed...
the same thing. However, I noticed that after a firmware update my SD DVD's haven't always appeared to be upscaled. I'll have to look into that a little more.

is it now possible use 360 (PC) pad in the ps3????
