LOL I remember that concept image of the PS3....

anyway, only one i didnt know about was #8

Megaton3217d ago

It voids your warranty, #8. The screw to remove the faceplate is behind the "Warranty void if removed" sticker.

Xbox Avatars Shoe3217d ago (Edited 3217d ago )

I already knew EVERY SINGLE thing on that list.

And yes, #8 voids your warranty.

Great List. Man, I wish we had Vidzone here in the States.

RememberThe3573217d ago (Edited 3217d ago )

What? That's a horrible list. But I'd love vidzone as well, I hate music channels that don't play music videos (I mean, WTF?). So, seeing some new music videos would be pretty cool.

The only one i didn't know was about the MAC address, going to write that number down somewhere now.

DarkTower8053217d ago

If you don't know about these features then I question if you actually own a PS3.

MazzingerZ3217d ago

that conncept image turned to be more accurate for the X360

WHAT!!! THE PS3 IS REGION FREE ? when did that happen? why didnt anyone tell me?, excuse me whilst i go and import demon's souls and the god of war collection

bpac1234567893216d ago

I never stopped to think that the mac address of my ps3 could lead cops to it if it ever got stolen. I'm about to write it down today because i'm in college and the thought of my roommate accidentally leaving the door unlocked and it getting stolen always worried me.

madpuppy3216d ago


what idiot thought that making the PS2 3 times thicker and adding a second drive would be innovative?

It reminds me of the Family Truckster station wagon from national lampoons Vacation.


The Happy Baby3213d ago

was REMOTE PLAY. being to track your stolen PS3 down(granted the thief plays it online) via mac address is awesome and will really increase the chance that your ps3 will be recovered.

cjflora3217d ago

I'm glad you were able to amaze us all with your superior knowledge. I'm so very happy you spent your own precious time to type that into the comments section.

Tanny922253216d ago

I am quite proud of my superior knowledge and I am glad to know you appreciate the fact that i spent my valuable sitting-on-the-jon-taking-a-cr ap-and-reading-n4g time to type that comment

Picture information on the PS3 is loaded down with every bit of deatail about the picture. Even down to shutter speed, time taken, camera model used. It's a great feature.

Agree if you used it

Disagree if you own only a 360 and have no clue what pic info is.

morkendo3217d ago

man, would love to have a RED or SILVER plate for my ps3 instead of dull black

A Cupcake for Gabe3217d ago

I wish they would bring back see-through systems. like nintendo did with gameboys and N64s. And the see through funky green xboxs too.

jerethdagryphon3216d ago


trust me it wouldnt be that interestng 2 large metal blocks and part of a very large heatsink

not very interesting

GamerSciz3217d ago

The original Launch 20gb (discontinued shortly after) has no backwards compatibility at all or any of the extra card slots. It was as barebone as a PS3 could have been.

Other than that a good article pointing out some of the "smaller" things to the system that does "Everything".

StylizedPlayer3217d ago

Your wrong the 20gb has FULL B/C. It just has no wi-fi or chrome or memory slots....but at least it has FULL B/C

jivah3217d ago (Edited 3217d ago )

nope actually da 20gb model was just like a 60 gb model..except no wifi n 40 less gigs...i have both a 20 n 60 n yes no card readers
