Sony PlayStation 3 12GB Model Available Now In The U.S.

Back in September 2012 we heard about the relatively cheaper Sony PlayStation 3. The company had made a significant change. It replaced the big hard drive PS3 originally came with 12GB of flash based memory. This radically drove the price down. However, there was one caveat. Sony didn’t release this model in U.S. back then. They exclusively marketed it in Hong Kong and Europe. Now nearly a year after its […]

It looks like Geohot (a famous hacker) isn’t too happy that Sony will be removing Linux support from its upcoming PS3 3.21 firmware, and the person who demoed an untethered iPhone jailbreak a short while ago, is determined to do something about it. He’s planning to figure out a way to update and still retain the Other OS support, maybe by coming up with something like Hellcat’s Recovery Flasher. If […]

The upcoming PS3 firmware 3.21 will be available this Thursday, which should be good news for PS3 owners, unless you happen to be running Linux on your machine.

The reason for disabling the feature is cited as a security concern, but there […]

The PS3 Slim was released with much fanfare earlier in the year, and we all know it is equipped with a hard drive within, but did you know that Sony’s engineers and designers actually considered using network-only storage or even SSDs for the PS3 Slim?
