Sick and tired of inability to use PS3.

June 18th, 2011 No comments

I finally got sick and tired of trying to reset my password on my PS3 and trust me, I have tried everything under the sun to just reconnect myself to the playstation network (not the store, the network).

As I hate having stuff that doesn’t work on any of my gadgets, it is time to reset the damn thing to its factory defaults and then yes, just register the stupid thing with a fake address (way to go sony, NOT!).

Would you believe it? 14 hours and 26 minutes at 2% to format a measly 250GB hard disk. Don’t believe me? Check it out:

As you might have guessed, I bought the wrong television too. I really liked the idea of bravia sync so that I could use my television’s remote control to start/stop/pause/rewind/forward a movie on the ps3, but hey… this will no longer be a deciding factor when I am next shopping for a tv. Sony do not seem to understand the knock-on effect that their failures have caused… and when the consumer has nowhere else to turn to, this is the result. I could somewhat come to terms when they disabled OtherOS but only because I didn’t get a chance to enjoy it before it was disabled.

Sony Playstation PS3 Update 3.61 for Cyprus

May 15th, 2011 5 comments

I was rather late to find out about the 3.61 firmware update for the Sony Playstation PS3. Although I have updated my firmware, I have not yet received the email that the system has sent to my registered email address to reset my password.

Anybody in Cyprus who has received the email and got past this stage?
