    PS3 Questions

    Hello guys

    quick question. can we play media on the ps3 directly from the attached external HDD or a usb memory stick?

    How easy is it to transfer stuff from said devices onto the ps3 HDD?

    been out of the gaming scene for a long time and have recently purchased a ps3. And have things changed in the gaming scene or what!!

    any good basic guides on the whole playstation online scene? is subscribing to play station + value for money?

    oh yeah, give us your ps3 id's and lets get some online games going on!!!

    1) yes, plug in mem stick/HDD, press triangle and display all files...

    2) very easy, highlight file, press triangle and click copy

    PS+ not worth it imo.

    guide for online? what do you want to know?

    yes, use it to play films all the time

    So even the latest TB HDD are compatible?

    Thanks for the ps+ advice.

    ignore the guide for online question. I guess i'll have to mess about with it.

    One thing that really surprised me. Ive got a wireless keyboard and mouse and the ps3 s surprisingly very good as a net browser. Majority of the sites I generally visit all come up really well, and only a bit of toggling to get it the right size on screen is needed. I watched HUSTLE on the bbc yesterday via the ps3 and was pleasently surprised by the easiness and quality by which the ps3 works. thumbs up!!!!!

    External drives need to be FAT32. As emhasiam says you can press triangle but I use the PS3 folder names to avoid that (VIDEO for video, MUSIC for music, PICTURE for pictures).

    so go on guys, post your online id's so we can hook up some games in the future!!!

    This is a good thread if you need some people to play with, it is a bad company 2 thread but we play all sorts (Uncharted 2, RDR, COD etc..).

    Thanks everyone for all your help on this thread

    playstation plus, wait for a game you really want thats worth a fair amount of money and then get 3 months at the end of the month, you effectily get 4 months of content
    also buy your psn cards online where you cxan get £20 worth for £17ish

    also might be worth looking into PLAYTV

    If you are looking for access to the German PlayStation Store you will find it similar to the UK (European) Store, but with less content due to German video game ratings restricting the sale of some titles.

    For North America & Japan, try this link:

    (I just used Google for "SETUP PSN US" &/or "SETUP PSN JAPAN")

    BFN,
