How do you delete cookies & cache on this beautiful PS3? Also, is defrag an option. Thanks.

Also, I hope Sony would allow clock / timer / alarm options on the PS3 with an update. I'd like to know what time it is by maybe pressing the PS button from time to time while playing games. Must keep an eye on the clock, you know, to make sure I don't play for too long. It would be cool to be able to use the PS3 as an alarm clock too. Heck, maybe a CD or MP3 alarm clock where you wake up to your favorite music. Why not? If you have it in your bedroom. Maybe a timer feature too to notify you that your 1 hour of alloted game time is up or something, YOU KNOW? Not necessary, but would be cool to have.

After installing this update I can't get UPnP to work. It says "Not available". Anyone know whats wrong here? It worked just fine before. If I can't play Warhawk VERY soon I WILL go crazy.

EDIT: Okay, it works now. That was stupid.

I was able to play WH with no problems after the new firmware.

Looks like the update means nothing to us Europeans, wonder what playability status means? is it to do with Warhawk or have they stopped the Lair remote play?

My Brother was attempting to play Hitman: Blood Money when the screen saying it's not compatible came up. The game worked before the update, so just wondering what the extent of this playability update is...

I know Sony said they will slowly move away from the PS2 games on PS3 and focus on the PS3 being for PS3 games. So I was expecting it. I have a PS2 though so obviously I can still play Hitman...

Just wondering if anyone else has had problems with PS2 games they used to play?

Btw I live in the UK so this update did affect us Europeans

cuco334067d ago

infernus, if that's true on what you are saying than that's pretty foul

since this is america, i wonder if i can sue sony for the '100% BC, ALWAYS' thing they preached ;)

ReBurn4067d ago

You can sue for anything, but I doubt that you'll be successful since Sony never guaranteed the PS3 to be 100% backward compatible.

WilliamRLBaker4067d ago

actually reburn they did, many times before launch back before e3 2006, such statements we're retracted later though but they did promise it or atleast alluded too it with statements such as FULL backwards compatibility support.

Well, warhawk's server problems are solved for me, so I'm guessing it has to do with warhawk.

Now we know who the bull****ters are on N4G, as well as at the boards.

Haha..flash backgrounds, avi support, controllers auto-off after idle..ahaha..awesomeness!

Wingnut264067d ago

The auto-off on the controllers is happening. I'm not sure when it was implemented, but I have had controllers shutting off while I was watching a movie. And yes, the battery was fully charged and in range of the BT tech.

MikeGdaGod4067d ago

i noticed the auto-off controls a while ago, i knew that wasn't new
