    Useless who is going to use this, give us games on the PS3. It is a gaming console right?

    I'll use it. I use my PS3 to watch every episode of Animated and Divx shows that I missed. When I have friends over, I use the browser to youtube stupid videos on my TV instead of having people huddled over a computer screen. I listen to my music through my PS3, and I see a lot of folks fold home when they aren't using the system.

    If it's easy to access, I can see myself turning the system on in the morning and access this to see what's new. It would be nice if it had a way to turn itself on in the morning for an hour and then shut off, so It would be on when I wake up in the morning and shut off, in case I forget to. It's not impossible, as Remote Play let's you do that with the PSP.

    Going to try this tonight. Thanks for the link.

    The Iphone and PSP proved to me that a Swiss Army Knife version of a gadget can't have enough cool features. "Goes back to streaming music to his Iphone in Austin, Texas from his friend's PC in Canada", and yes, I'm really doing this. hehe

    I was nervous to update after the 2.4 incident. But when I do I'll check it out.

    ......boo. This is why I chose a 360. (No offense. I am planning to get a PS3 when I have enough extra cash to blow. I want my Ratchet and Clank)

    None taken, I like having options and less Ad clutter on my interface :D  And you'll do well by Ratchet and Clank. It's an amazing little game.

    Hmm. That's an interesting new thing to add. However, I'm not sure if the best marketing strategy is, "Hey look! You could have watched on your PS3 as hurricane Ike devastated the coast!"

    Stuff like this is cool in between game sessions and when there ain't shit on tv.

    Would still rather them make games their ultimate priority instead of competing with every media function out there. I guess they need to do this if they want to beat 360 in every degree.

    Just hope the core gamers dont eventually get left behind, without them , all these next gen systems probably would'nt be here

    You're thinking of the PS2. That's the only reason they're still making the damn thing.

    But it's not like Sony is being like Nintendo, popping out a great first party game once or twice a year. It's always funny when Sony puts out a new function out for the PS3 or PSP that people say, "I wish that would put that effort into making games" like we don't have a huge roster of great first-party titles coming. I won't list them, but some of the threads highlighting the board have some of them on the title. I don't feel like they are compromising their game development to create these little features, not in the least. There are just as many first party titles coming out for PS3 as there are for 360, but we are just getting a cool new feature, with nothing be lost for attaining it.

    I downloaded it last night. Nothing too fancy, but it's cool to have as a screen saver. I wish you could make the Web Cams larger though. Sydney looked amazing last night.
