Just bought a PS3 - Page 2

post #11 of 34
You can hack it and d/l all your games..

But honestly I would sell it and get an SSD or something. $200+ for a Netflix machine...ehhhhhh. Unless you really want to play those PS3 exclusive titles like Killzone, GT5 etc.

I was looking more along the lines of CFW, as for streaming I have a 2TB NAS and a 42" LGTV connected to my network, so no need for the bluray feature. It came with MGS/Saints Row 2/Rainbow 6. 2 awesome games and 1 not so awesome (RB6).

So knowing I have a 360 already, and my sig rig, plus media is covered as my main monitor is a 42" TV... What should I do with this thing? I'm not bothered about sony crying because their baby has been molested either.

If you want to play newer games and keep the ability to install Linux, just wait a little bit. Kmeaw will release a dual boot 3.55 CFW soon.

Then put a huge hdd in it and get a gamefly subscription for like a month, then..... you get it.

Or you can update it and play online, however I recomend you don't update it, jailbreak it, and sell it for $320 with a 500Gb HDD

Couldn't disagree more strongly. PS3 has some awesome exclusive titles. The op over paid a little so I'm assuming he was giving some games or something with it.

Pirating on the ps3 isn't even worth the time of trying. The size of the bluray disc would full up a 500 gig hd fast. Besides, you can get most used games on the cheap.
