How to Find the Title ID for a PSN Game:

1. Connect your PS3 to PC via FTP.
2. Go to dev_hdd0/games/
3. Take note of all the names of the folders.
4. Install the game in the PS3.
5. Connect again via FTP.
6. Search in dev_hdd0/games for a new folder, that new folder will have a name and a number which is the Title ID.

Note: PS Store ones will be added when they are leaked like the rest were.
