The 5 second reset. Holding your finger on the power button in front for five seconds with the back power switch on make it beep twice and will reset the graphics settings and also the OS.

This is handy for when you take your PS3 somewhere with a TV that has different capabilities, and it's also how you switch back to the XMB from Linux.

I know most of us know that, but that's a pretty important tip for new users.

But PS3 is just nice to have.

I'm shocked. You're getting a PS3?

Seems like alot of people who are called "from the Green Side" are getting PS3's soon.

You won't regret it anyway. Hope you enjoy your system, first thing you notice is how amazing slick it looks.

store redesign.

Store looks great on a HDTV but on I cant say the same about on a standard.

Meus Renaissance3949d ago

There is a different, better, layout if you own a HDTV. I personally like it how it is, but a redesign would be a great thing.

Good article but there wrong on one thing you can play games or watch movies when you download stuff (it might be a little slower but it still works) the only thing i found you cant do that on is themes but they take like 30 sec's anyway.

I'll be buying one next year, probably by mid-year... when everything will truly be complete for the PS3 ( cheaper price, GranTurismo 5: Prologue in Blu-Ray format, Sixaxis "rumble" - hooray it's back ).
Thank for the info.
