229w ago - We all know the problem. While your PS3 Trophy list grows and as more games you install, the synchronize process of the trophies becomes slower and slower.
Now I found a simple solution to fix this problem and speed it up.
Here is the How-To:
1. Shutdown PS3
2. Hold the power-button till the PS3 shuts down by itself after some beeps
3. Hold the power-button down again, till you hear a "double beep"
4. Unhand the button; now the service menu starts
5. Choose option 4 "Rebuild Database"
6. Done, now your PS3 updates the trophies very fast again
261w ago - So, the Home Open Beta has launched, and while it's another step in the right direction, I still find little to no reason to fire it up.
Here are some ideas that Sony should be considering, if they already aren't.
More Character Customization
What's there already is good, but it's next to impossible to create a character that looks even remotely like me, especially in the face area.
The sad thing is that the underpowered Wii can make a recognizable Mii of me, as can in-game editors in The Godfather and, what came closest so far, Fight Night Round 2. In fact, Sony should look closely at the Fight Night character creation, because I'm convinced that it can do anything.
In addition to this, allow our Home avatars to be used outside of Home - maybe in games like BUZZ! Quiz TV, or sports games, etc. just like the Xbox 360 avatars and Wii's Miis.
The limited options that currently exist for PSN account icons are ridiculous. There are 23 pages or so, most of which are crap. Allow us to set our PSN avatar to a headshot of our Home avatar, and this would solve that problem in one fell swoop.
Complete XMB Functionality
The XMB is fast, sleek, and simple and really, pretty bloody awesome. But Home is supposed to be this new...
285w ago - The 'Playstation Journal' has conducted a review on the GioTeck RealTriggers for the PS3. They clip onto the convex triggers of the PS3 controller and add a concave curve which help your fingers stay securely on the trigger buttons.
Overall they are impressed and score them a 9/10.
To quote: GioTeck RealTriggers for PS3 are very good peripherals if you're up for making a change to the PS3 controller. Me? I Ordered them for fun - and I like them.
They slide/clip on to the convex triggers and add a concave curve, helping your fingers stay securely on the trigger buttons [people were complaining that their fingers would slip off]. Other than adding security for your fingers, that's about it. If you want to revert back to the old triggers' feel, removing the clip on triggers couldn't be easier.
If I was made to point out one downside to them, I would say that they poke out a bit, making it look a bit weird. That, and they could have covered up the underneath, it looks ugly.
One thing which can be taken into gaming consideration is that when the controller is placed on the floor, the two triggers aren't going to be pressed against the floor, causing the buttons to activate [I've had this problem when watching videos on the PS3's browser and the view is zoomed on something...[/I]
