PSM Video Podcast Episode 6: PS3 total tour and more

Part of the fun of finally getting your hands on a PS3 is exploring its nooks and crannies. And given the PS3's tech-power, expect a lot of exploring ahead of you. But if you don't want to waste any time finding you way around your spanking new console, PSM's Video Podcast Episode 6 will give you a head start.

This episode features a total tour of the PS3's XMB, the different icons on its desktop and the functions they provide. Serving as the PS3 tour guide is a Sony rep, so he knows what's he's talking about. You get to visit some of the PS3 sweet spots, such as bluetooth, photos and images and music features and basically everything else.

One particularly interesting thing he mentioned is that the PS3 reads music in iTunes, mp3 and ATRAC formats, making it a game console and a digital jukebox as well. He also demonstrated how games are booted in the PS3.

Earlier this morning i posted a vid of the ps3 taking in a dics and haters got crazy on me.Well i`m back again with another vid showing more details ...

HyperBear6389d ago

But youve got to admit that last video you posted, was a load of crap. Like i can make that same video about the 360 of it opening and closing, and then it would be ok right?. No. But this Video actually showed what we can all expect from our PS3's when we get them and turn them on. Although the PR guy didnt even know the difference between that one saved folder and the other, and he didnt really know a lot about it., but still, a good video non-the-less and yea, Nov.17 is coming closer and faster than ever.

it wont work for me it says loading forever, the page never loads...

12Volt6388d ago

That thing is so sweet, its an electronic milestone in video gaming. There is so many features headed our way, and that PR guy was n00b, if he really spent the time with the PS3 he would be enthusiastic to talk about everything it can do... oh well.

What did he say about the daytime and nitetime? I cant understand him...

I love the XMB!

It will load, it just takes FOREVER (seriously, I'd left the window open by accident, and a while later, it started playing). If you have iTunes, it's a lot easier to just download the podcast from there. It's fast and its free. Just go to the iTunes Store and search for "PSM," without the quotes

I love the way the system starts up, like an orchestra that's tuning up. Everything about it screams Hi-class and Hi-tech.

He did a track guide for Neurnberg 24 in GTsport.

We have had no more content since then, maybe a few time trail modes, I believe there was one from Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstapen as well, due to the red bull partnership.

Back to Lewis, He STILL wears the Gran Turismo logo on his caps, every weekend Formula One races take place.

I was expcting more from this sponsorship, oh well. This video, is kinda rubbing salt into the wound, for me

That Driver tutorial still haunts my dreams. That parking lot saw me fail a thousand times

Starhawk over Warhawk?...... Dude, NO ONE should listen to you.

Odd choices for "best" more like you settled as these being the "best" that available to you at the time, cause a lot of these blow or were average to poor performers that ended up in bargain bin.

Missing too many great sci-fi titles here. The Void, The Resistance Series, Killzone 2 and 3, Enslaved, man.. there were so many, this is redicu-list.

FreeckyCake3d ago

Nobody should listen to you either with that attitude.

I agree that Starhawk shouldn't be above Warhawk, however I must say that Starhawk multiplayer was incredible for its time! Many people wrote it off bc the single player was quite terrible, bc it was basically 1 huge tutorial for the multiplayer. But I can tell you never spent any significant amount of time in MP. It was doing incredibly tense base building w air, foot and land vehicle (and mech!) combat long before Fortnite was ever a thing.

I bet it would have been much better received if it had just ditched the story mode all together. So many people like yourself completely wrote it off based on reviews by reviewers that let the criticism of single player weigh heavily on their scores. I bet you didn't even play it.

The riddick games are some of the best stealth titles ever, highly underrated

YourMommySpoils3d ago

What games? All recall plating was Escape from Butcher Bay.

Friendlygamer3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

There's also the less acclaimed 'assault on dark Athena'

( also, not saying this to you specifically but there's both resistance and killzone games on the list, it's amazing how even something so simple and innocent as a game list can be turned into misinformed vitriol here lol )

Glad to see Resonance of Fate. Enslaved was pretty good too. I’m sure there are others nobody has listed but I’m too tired to try and think of anything
