342w ago - Courtesy of the PlayStation Blog today: Hi, folks!

My name's Noel Silvia, and I'm a Graphic Artist and part of the PlayStation Network team.

I'm here today to walk you through how to make and install your own Themes for your PLAYSTATION 3. All you'll need are:

- an image editing program (MSPaint, Adobe PhotoShop, etc.)
- the provided "compiler" program
- a little time

Start by downloading the "HowToMakePS3Themes.zip".zip file HERE and extracting it onto your computer.

342w ago - Ken_vs_ryu has found a way to download torrent files directly to the PS3 without using a client.

Here are the instructions on downloading torrents directly to the PS3 via TorrentRelay, please use with caution and intelligence:

1. Find a torrent file link.
2. Copy .torrent link (ie: www.mininova.org/get/########)
3. Go to http://torrentrelay.com
4. Click on the 2nd input box with [Get URL] next to it, and type in the link from step #2.
5. Click on [Get URL].
6. Click on the file you want. It will list all the files available on the torrent.
7. Save As dialog should pop up.

Note: This really isn't good for the torrent community since the PS3 cannot seed files, but it's interesting that it's possible.
