One of the many issues that people have been having with the fairly recent firmware 3.00, for the PS3, is that there is too much forced advertisements, such as that ticker in the new status bar. Many people have wished Sony had made a way to turn that ticker off. Now there is a way. A smart chap over at the official Playstation forums has found out a way of how to turn off that pesky ticker. Here are his words:
"what you do is change your date and time settings to the future, like changing the year from 2009 to 2010, then restart your ps3 and feast your eyes on a tickerless XMB"
Pretty simple and it works. Enjoy your Tickerless XMB!"
Just to clear things up:
