And we would want to go to this screen because??
Just an interesting find really - makes you wonder what else may be hidden that has yet to be uncovered. Any hidden menus are always cool - be it consoles, phones or even tv's!
A normal user won't go to that screen in case of he could'nt do anything with this information. You even have read about that it comes from Playstation 3 Dev Wiki where Dev stands for Developer ?
Well I played with it bit, the only thing I found was that... "if you guys want it to stay static without holding down start."
1) Just hold start... press up, down, left, right, on D-pad.. like going up/down on list.
2) then press and hold PS button as if to turn off system/controller.
3) Let go of start.
4) press PS button again to exit.
and that's it... you have it static on the screen
and of course O will exit.
Doesn't work on Vita though ...

Sure it works it's also shown in a other thread from Nabnab/silow here: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/psp-ps...tml#post403553
Holding start down for about 10 seconds before releasing also makes it static.
What's the main purpose of this menu; is it just to obtain info on some of the specs?
Like I said it's not a "menu" do I need to put down the definition of a menu?
All that shows is a "list" of random numbers and letters and what looks like half asked email addresses.
