One thing i do not get all though is on update 3.20 they removed the option to run your PS with Linux, if you already had this as your op sys you were FORCED to remove it otherwise face up to the fact you would be unable to go online with your games etc. Pretty shit if you ask me.

I was looking to get a early model PS3 (the MGS 80GB pack), but that firmware BS is problematic.  I think I may hold off for now, even though my love for Rockstar and anticipation for the new Red Dead Redemption (the sequel to Red Dead Revolver) will remain unsatisfied if I do.  Decisions, decisions.

In problematic i take it you'd want Linux as your operating system yes? If so Shoque may have the answer.

I was certainly considering it, but it's more a reaction to the idiotic move by Sony.  Sony specifically marketed the PS3 to be Linux developer-friendly and with the new update...well, it's a dick move.

Using Linux is really an immediate concern as I don't have much experience with it (some Ubuntu and some Slackware, much less active developement) and wouldn't really need it for the games I'd be playing.  But if/when I decide to get a basic DAW going, I'll probably want to use a full Linux OS.  But, again that's a long term plan.  Hopefully shoque's has the inside track on something that works.

There's an Ubuntu tutorial: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/ps3-guides-tutorials/geohot-ps3-exploit-ubuntu-linux-guide-109811.html

I think you have to have firmware 3.15 or lower, otherwise it won't work. I'm not 100% sure though.

Let me know if it worked! :)

I sold all my video games the other day with the exception of NBA2K10 which I will sell once NBA2K11 comes out. The only other game I have any intention of buying is:

Read Dead Redemption from Rockstar Games
Coming out May 18th...

Lando,
That game looks awesome, I've always been drawn to western style/type video games.  I may have to go pick that one up.

the only RPGs (besides Pokemon) i've ever played have been on the SNES:
Mario RPG
Final Fantasy III US (VI JAPAN)
Chrono Trigger

I grew up on strictly Nintendo, so once Square(soft) moved to Playstation, I had to stop.
Besides, once Super Smash Bros came out, i basically never played anything else.
