PS3 FTW!

whyrl: (shiny!)
As if plugging my laptop into my shiny shiny TV wasn't enough, now I can play movie files without having to get up and plug anything in! My PS3 arrived today and the first thing I did was get my D-Link DNS-323 NAS box serving media to my PS3 and it works!! :D WIN.

(Second thing I did, of course, was watch the first half hour of Surf's Up on Blu-Ray. Soooo very shiny.) @v@

The only downside I've noticed so far is it seems to only support mp3's and not AAC format (which is what most of my music collection is in). Eh.

Before I even got home and unpacked the box, I bought a PS3 remote (because controlling Blu-Ray playback with a game controller is just silly) and an HDMI cable. I've laid the unit flat in my TV cabinet because I don't have space to stand it up anywhere. It's nice that my wireless USB keyboard works with the PS3 as well as the Wii. I couldn't get the PS3 connected to the wifi network because I don't know its MAC address. Eh, I'll just have to settle for a wired Gigabit connection. ;P (Actually, the reason I wanted to go wireless was because I'm now short one cat5 cable. I guess I'll have to work around that by buying an Airport Express.)
whyrl: (awk!)
I just found out that Sony Australia is giving away 28,000 to 30,000 PlayStation 3 units as part of their Bravia promotion, which ended last month.
