    Playstation Plus

    So I decided to take the leap and sign up for playstation plus yesterday. One thing I noticed while signing up is sony will automatically put funds in your wallet and renew your subscription when the time comes. Not sure I like that. Just a heads up for anyone who is thinking of signing up.

    PS3 and Tversity

    Ok, I just tried Tversity and setup my PS3 as a media outlet. All I can say is...why haven't I done this sooner? Now a few questions. What do you use to rip your DVD's? I was thinking of adding an extra HDD to the computer just for my DVD collection. Loving it so far.
