What The PS3 Can Do - Page 6

post #51 of 242
Thread Starter 
Figured it's about time I update this, especially since Sony hit a milestone with Firmware 2.0. It's been a while since I've updated so if there's something I missed please let me know.

Apparently you can also play lair on your PSP if you link it to the PS3. Don't know if any other games support this.

I know it means some boring formatting, but maybe you should include the 40GB version as well? It's really gotten Sony off its feet with PS3 sales, but it also comes with some drawbacks to functionality.

I found a sweet diagram that breaks down the models that I just stuck in there. Good idea

The PS3 can't do DTS-HD High Resolution Audio or DTS-HD Master Audio yet until they do an update that can send it to bitstream in HDMI.

This list is primarily based off the 60 GB model and is focused on what the PS3 has and what it can do. That's all. Please avoid any flaming - I'm simply pointing out what the PS3 is capable of, mainly from my own experience. This is NOT a list of what the 360 can't do!!

Other PS3 owners, please chime in! I'm sure to forget some things. I'll credit you with your contributions

I have had this one they replaced it with for awhile and its starting to mess up now. I dont even play it that much. #2 would probably be "Dont touch it while its on unless you want a nice ring around your new frisbees, since they wont work as games anymore."
Didnt take long for the first PS3 is better post......

Nice Venn diagram!

So let me double check.... the only ones still out are the 40GB and the 80GB and the extra $100 gets you:
_ two more USB ports
_ SD slot (and others)
_ Some backward compatibility
_ 40GB more space
