    PS3 questions.

    First off, what's everbody's setup?
    Now that I'm online, I'd like to upgrade my systems add on features. There's a little type pad thing that attaches to the controller, or I can pick up a used bluetooth keyboard to make my TV and PS3 my main source for web browsing.
    I think this would be pretty cool.
    Should I bother to get the PS3 camera? Does it work like a Wii?
    How do you add somebody to your buddy list (or whatever it's called)
    Has anybody really gone all out with additional stuff for there system?
    I've got the 40 Gb PS3, can I still download full games (Tekken 5 is calling me)

    I use a Blue Tooth talk online. It's a little tricky to sync up( My Nephew helped me). I have decided a HATE the PS3 Controller...but there's another option. They now have a Mod Box that lets you use your Xbox 360 Controller on the PS3...I WILL have one!!

    The PS3 Camera is AWESOME!!!! Much better the Xbox! It has a Screen saver Aqarium, where the Fish react to you through the Camera...really Freakin' COOL!

    The first thing I would do is upgrade your hard drive.
    If you patient you can get a 250gb for about $35 shipped on e-bay.
    Ever blu-ray you play and game you put in adds stuff on our hard drive.
    My first PS3 was a 20gb and I only watched movies on it (well i did play 1 game), I filled the drive twice in just over a year.

    I have the 60 GB...but I assume you can delete old Data, like you can with the Xbox?

    I have the 60 GB one as well. For what I do with mine (this has included downloading some games and add ons) I haven't filled it yet, so I haven't felt the pressing need to swap out the drive for a bigger one. But I also watch a lot of stuff using a USB stick, or streamed from my PC's hard drives, so I haven't had to fill up my PS3 hard drive (yet). You can definitely delete old data from it.

    The Six Axis was absolute garbage. The motion control had huge dead zones and barely worked and no rumble (that really ticked me off). As soon as the Dualshock 3 pads hit Japan I imported one.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Yes you can delete old info off the unit.
    I got a "broken" 80gb unit off e-bay, when I read what was wrong it needed to have old info deleted and software updated. That was all that was wrong with it did that and and made a few bucks fliping it to a guy I worked with.
