Yahoo - You've heard that old story that we only use about 10 percent of our brains? Well, turns out that's a myth. But it is probably true that, for most of us, we only use about 10 percent of our gaming console system.
I guess I use it too much because I already do all these things...except block my internet. It is quite a resourceful machine. The next ps must have a better browser though.
No its just Yahoo, the writer does this all the time. Most of the time its about Apple and irritates people. They put "Rice will dry it out if you get the iPhone wet" as a feature for the Iphone....really? Just surprised they didnt take this article to bash Sony and praise Apple like always....They also can't stand Google for obvious reasons.
Was just about to say the exact same thing.
PAINFULLY....SLOW.....BROWSER. I almost wish they left it out! OK just kidding. One thing that baffles me....ok 2 things. 1.) If Google had ANY sort of partnership with PS, judging by the "Google Search" bar on the menu, why the hell didn't they create a Chrome for PS3?! and mainly 2.) why the hell is this on the top of the front page and why are they always titled "10 things you DIDN'T know" When in reality, it should be titled "10 things I'm just discovering about my PS3, that you probably knew already" They assume we don't know this shit. I knew about this when it came out. True fans of their systems know the in and outs and when they get an update, they know what is added. Freaking casuals these days....
Just the other day my brother in law streamed an anime he had saved on his phone to my PS3 and we watched it on my TV. Extremely sweet.
It can play games too. Simply groundbreaking.
It also plays Blu-rays!!!! lol
you can even program it to shut off by itself out of nowhere!!
You can use remote play as your rearview mirror lol
Yahoo news? Seriously?
thanks but i knew those already
Jakes on you, what did y'all expect from yahoo?
Get off me, Jake!
I always thought it was a monkey on my back. Turns out it was Jake all along.
It does not blend! Edit: Except in Assassins Creed
why yahoo sucks at journalism. there are always proofreading mistakes and come out with the most insignificant news.
I don't think they do that at all.
The Ps3 system actually has swastikas that you can use in your speech bubble comment when you sign in online. There are two one that looks normal and the other one is a mirrored swastika. This is no bs either. it's located in another language. You can also use the star, music note, and even the ps controllers face button symbols as well. Random fact of the day lmao
the swastika was Chinese for peace but the nazi's used it and you most likely knows what happened next.
groundbreaking if u r on ps3 3.55 u can also jailbreak n install showtime n play mkv files u can also stream movies through ur pc via media server.
WOAAA Alien Tech! the most powerful console eva!
But will it blend ?
the save file thing is junk. well if you care about trophies that is.
You mean you never backup your game saves files? So, if you loose the game save files by any chance, do you just replay from the beginning? I keep thousands of save games files because I often load the older ones to remember what I did if I only play the game once every few weeks or months. Or sometimes I want to backtrack quickly because I got stuck taking certain path.
mine blends quite well in pitch black of night!!!
Meh, knew all these.
If you include all the original functions on the plat PS3 that got "cut out", you are using even less "brain". I used to use those "cut out" functions and if I also use most of other functions in the PS3, does it mean I'm using more than 100% of my "brain"?
When my controller battery indicator tells me it's gonna die, it usually lasts up to 2 hours.
It's obvious that list isn't for anyone who goes to this site. Maybe it's helpful for people who don't know much about gaming.
The author is wrong on the price range for Vudu titles. If you want 1080p, it'll cost you $5.99 for a rental.
Oh yeah, and good luck offloading a game save file for Dragon Age to a USB. It's copy protected and won't let you.
I think that was changed a while back in a FW update...
As expected, I knew all of this already. Yawn
had this article back in 2006 yawn!!! back to sleep. Most PS3 owners figured this stuff out six years ago.
Thanks for the obvious tips captain obvious.
The author must have been wearing his clown pants when he wrote this.
Wow, interesting information... if it was 2007. Maybe even E3 2006.
delete your history if ya know what i mean.
This journalist must have recently purchased his first PS3. I knew most of this since like, early 2007, Jesus. I hope nobody got paid for writing this.
Do you know that, you can play Games on PS3. ha ha
Rumour has it you can turn the thing off!
So I just bought this thing called a telephone. It's crazy that I can talk to people from far away places. Technology is really kicking up this year.
I hooked up some parametric hypersound speakers (don't ask me how i got them) to play uncharted 3... 3D sound + 3D visuals = sensory overload (in a good way). now, there's a REAL ps3 tip :)
