PlayStation-Fi

post #1 of 259
Thread Starter 
Any owners here? I have PlayStation 1 (SCPH-1001), PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation 3. I recently upgraded my PS3's HDD to 300GB and stored all of my music on it (320kbps). I am waiting for PS3's update to DivX so I can play all my DVD's on the HDD. I am enjoying Blu-Ray's 1080p and 7.1 Dolby TrueHD. I also have it tied to my computer via wi-fi so I can stream videos and music from it. Also I just bought a PSP GPS which is very helpful to me because my old GPS broke and don't want to spend $100+ for a GPS. I am still exploring the unexplored features of PS3 and PSP. I am currently playing Uncharted and Warhawk on PS3 and Metal Gear and Vice City Stories on PSP.

I have a PS1, PS2, and PSP. (the latter of which I'm technically borrowing) The PS2 is great, but the PSP has mostly half-assed titles.

I have a PSP and a PS3, I just got thePS3 recently and have yet to discover it's full potential, one of my first things to do would be to add YDL, but I need to do some more research. and so far I only have Motorstorm which came with it and Assassin's Creed.

So far I'm loving it, cant wait for the DVR firmware to come out if it ever does.

I am still thinking how it works if I have a HD-DVR now and using PS3 as a DVR also and the TV Guide. Also for those people who wants SACD over optical can get it with multiple channels by downconverting it to DTS.

Yeah, the PSP games library isn't really great; I have more fun playing homebrew on it.

I also have a PS2 and PS3. (PSN: BTG-XCELL) add me if you want to play R6:V, COD4, or WH online.

I was playing old snk fighting games for awhile on mine. The only PSP titles I like so far are Silent Hill Origins, Gitaroo Man, Crush, and Exit. Tried MGS and couple other big names and they just didn't seem right.

I have a PSP and a PS3 and I love the combination of the two. With the new firmware, you can turn on the PS3 from any wifi connection using the PSP and turn it off when you are done. Also, the PS3 (combined with Tversity) is fantastic for accessing the media on my computer. The benefit of this is that the PSP can connect to the PS3 from a wifi connection and have access to all of the files that Tversity is accessing on my host computer (photos, music, and video). Since the PSP is really picky about what video format it will play, the PS3 via Tversity gives it the abilty to play many of the formats you can throw at it.

Another program (Orb) will even allow you to watch TV from the PSP/PS3 if you have a tuner in your computer... Sweet!

I also have a Roku Soundbrige and I can control it with the PSP and the slimserver interface.

Also, the wifi setup on the PSP is nice for browsing the internet.

I do like some of the games on the PSP, but I am no hardcore gamer. I have maybe 8 or 9 games, and I am pretty happy with most of them.

The PS3 is still young and I expect to see many new games worth buying in the next year. I am happy using it for BluRay, media access, DVDs, etc.. for now.

I just bought a PS3 and Virtual Fighter 5.

I was wondering how I can play my mp3 files on the PS3.
I have all my mp3 files on an external hard drive for my computer.
I was hoping the PS3 would recognize by ext. hard drive, but it doesn't.

When I connect the PS3 by the usb cable, the PS3 does not recognize my hard drive.
Does anyone know how to get the PS3 to recognize the mp3 files on my hard drive?

The question is, can you play Crysis with it?

I'm not gonna get PS3 until it's much cheaper and I can easily, uh... "backup" my original games to play with it.

How is Virtua Fighter 5 so far?

I think that VF 4 and VF 4 evolution are great, great games. VF 5 is the main game making me seriously considering purchasing a PS3. So far all that's stopping me is I don't think any of my friends right now would be interested in playing that type of game.

My external drive works via USB. I don't know what you're doing wrong. All you need to do is dump the .mp3 files via flash drive and it will sort it by ID3 tags.
@dj_mocok
Why do you want the price lower? $400 for a Blu-Ray, SACD, console, and more compare to Xbox 360. If you want any lower go to eBay and you might find a $300 one.

I don't mind the console's price, but more of the games' prices. Maybe after all the classic titles already out (Metal Gear, FF, etc), I will consider getting one.

My favorite fighting game was Street Fighter II until I overplayed it.

Then I got, Dead or Alive Ultimate which has good graphics but the game play wasn't that great. Blocking wasn't very consistent and it was hard to do counter moves.

I also got Soul Caliber III or IV, but I didn't really enjoy that game either.
Sword fighting isn't as interesting as kick boxing for me.

I also got King of the Fighters and Guilty Gear but it was like stepping back in time and I didn't want to play old 2D games anymore.

So far I like VF5. It has the best graphics I've seen and the blocking and counter punching is pretty responsive. Only thing I would criticize the game on is that all the fighters move differently with a wide variety of fighting styles. You get small tiny and gigantic fighters. You almost have to change your fighter depending on who you fight. Because one fighter does alot of high kicks, which works great with a tall opponent, but with a short one you always miss their head. I would prefer if everyone was just a karate fighter with a small variation of moves. Sometimes you press the kick button a couple of times and the fighter does some combos moves, but I prefer they just do one simple move twice. But overall I think it is definately worth the $40 bucks I paid for it.

The $400 dollar version doesn't have SACD capability.

I own a PSP. While the title selection is somewhat lackluster, I really enjoy playing Socom 1 and 2 (I hear there's another one out now as well, though I don't really know anything about it other than it's more of a tactical game, due to the name, tactical strike).
The system really shines when it comes to homebrew. I just picked up a 4 GB MS Duo on Black Friday for this task, along with the backups of my games so there's no need to carry the UMD's around.
