    Get the netflix disc and start streaming right to your PS3.

    I bought a PS3 primarily as a Blu-Ray player, streaming movies from home server and Netflix, and for a few games I wanted to play. What still bugs me most is that the DVD and/or Blu-Ray player doesn't save the last position the movie was at if you have to stop and turn off your PS3. You have to either find it in the chapters or fast forward to where you were at. Quite annoying.

    That should work for DVD's, but the blu-ray side of things uses Java, so the disk creator would have to write in support for resume play. For DVD's it won't save if you just cut it off while playing... Exit to the XMB, then turn it off. It should remember.

    I bought a stand for $10, my PS3 stands vertical, on my subwoofer. I suppose that helps with cooling, and takes up less space...


    Yeah I know it definitely works for DVD...

    Java? Really? That's odd. Why couldn't Sony just include a routine when the the movie is stopped it remembers the time/location it was stopped. I can't believe the geniuses at Sony couldn't figure that out.

    I heard its no good to leave your PS3 near a sub woofer.. Something about the radiation.

    Anyway, I thought I'd clean my PS3 today, I've had it for 3 years now and it must be pretty messy in the inside! So I removed the famous sticker "Warranty Voided if moved" and I discover my PS3 had been manufactured in december 2006!!
    3 and a half years and it's still working :D
    I also ordered a new HDD to use in my Ps3, a much larger one, so I can have all my movies on the HDD.
    Anyways! I didnt even managed to open my ps3 up, since I needed some kind of special tool from Sony I guess :(

    like burks said, u'll only need very small screwdrivers to open up yur ps3. it should be similar to opening up a computer.
