PS3 News Scheduled Downtime, Forum Upgrades & Logo Thread

850°
159w ago - Just a quick heads-up to everyone, starting this weekend (not an April 1st joke) we will begin upgrading the vB3 Forums we currently use to vBulletin 4, and through the transition there will be some scheduled downtime while our server cat works his magic!

Once the vB4 upgrade itself is complete, we will undergo another few weeks of work with some minor downtime while porting the remaining modules to vB4, followed by implementing some of your 2011 suggestions to our site. If you have any feel free to contribute them to the thread and we will do our best to make it happen.

Additionally, we are currently seeking a new site logo- if you are a graphic artist and would like to share some design concepts check out this ongoing thread... if we end up selecting one posted we will send the artist a $100 PayPal gift to express our appreciation.

Thanks to everyone who has shared their PS3 News site suggestions and logo designs to date, and we look forward to checking out new ones as time permits!
 

PSN Downtime: Paves the way for new video store?

100°
303w ago - A new menu option has appeared under account management on the PS3 which suggests a movie store is coming up soon.

If you follow this path: XMB > Account Management > Account Management > Activate System, you will see a new option to activate the system for different types of content, for now you can only select game but previously you could only activate the system for all content.

This change suggests that more types of content are coming to the PS3 very soon - perhaps the downtime was for a server upgrade?

With Firmware 2.4 and its host of tasty features due soon, we're quite excited (as usual) about the PS3 this year. We're fully expecting a raft of announcements for the video store and associated partners at E3.
